Kiambu County Bottom Up Economic Forum: Cheap Fertilizer for Farmers, Jobs, Home Ownership

Kiambu County Economic Forum

Deputy President William Ruto has been travelling across different counties to popularize his party’s bottom-up manifesto. He has been holding series of economic forums across different counties to collect the views of the people. He wants to base his politics on what people want rather than promising things that he may not fulfil when he takes power.

Today the UDA party leader has taken the Hustler Economic Forum to Kiambu County. The forum was held at the Jumuia Conference Center – Limuru.

Ruto promised to promote home ownership in Kiambu County through affordable mortgages. He also gave hope to thousands of farmers and small business owners.

The Deputy President said that he would encourage, support, and empower poultry farming to produce their own feed from raw materials such as palm oil, Soya beans, and sunflower. This will reduce the cost of production for small-scale farmers.

When the Kenya Kwanza Presidential nominee talks about poultry farming, he talks from experience because he is a poultry farmer himself.

During the Kiambu County Economic Forum, William Ruto also promised that dairy and cash crop farmers will be essential for the revolutionary bottom-up economic model that seeks to drive economic growth in the country.

Another important pillar for Kiambu in Ruto’s government will be affordable farm inputs. Ruto assured crop farmers in the county that his administration will prioritize low costs of fertilizer and other farm inputs to reduce the costs of food production in the county and increase food security, while at the same time increasing income for farmers.

The Kenya Kwanza brigade has also emphasized the need to focus on policies that will promote crops such as Avocado, dairy, tea and coffee, which are important for the economy of Kiambu County.

Value addition will also be encouraged through all legal ways possible to ensure that farmers get the best value for their produce.

William Ruto also repeated his promise to deliver over 400,000 jobs annually by investing in projects worth KES 100 billion.

The Deputy President was accompanied in the Kiambu County Bottom Up Economic Forum by former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo, Chama cha Kazi Party leader Moses Kuria, Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi, and Kiambu County Women Rep Gathoni Wamuchomba among other Kenya Kwanza leaders.

The Kenya Kwanza leaders later took their campaigns to Murang’a County accompanied by his running mate Rigathi Gachagua, Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula, Maendeleo Chap Chap chair Alfred Mutua, ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi, and other Kenya Kwanza politicians.

William Ruto’s campaign team toured Kiriaini, Muthithi, and Gitugi towns, all in Murang’a County. The message in all stopovers is one and clear – to engage in issue-based politics with the aim of changing the country’s economy.
