In Nakuru County Economic Forum held in Nakuru two days ago, Deputy President promised the residents of Nakuru a lot goodies should his Kenya Kwanza political coalition win the August elections.

“Nakuru will no longer be forgotten. Besides the cabinet position, my government will provide more than 40,000 job vacancies for the youth in this region,” he promised.

Accompanied by his running mate Rigathi Gachagua, Ruto warned the people of Nakuru against politics of deceit and power sharing. Unlike other candidates who pursue political positions for selfish interests, Kenya Kwanza leaders are promising people-oriented kind of leadership.

“Those who are competing with us have embraced the politics of personalities and what will benefit a few individuals but the people in Kenya Kwanza are interested in issues and ideas that will better the lives of millions of the people of Kenya,” said Ruto.

The Nakuru County economic forum was one of the public hearings that the Kenya Kwanza team is holding across the country to get people’s views. Their aim is to know what the people want and work towards fulfilling them.

It is in line with the bottom-up economic model that has dominated Ruto’s political campaign. The Deputy President is basing his politics on the idea of empowerment, where local communities are supported to be able to generate their own income and create employment locally.

Kenya Kwanza has formed an Economic team led by Moses Kuria, David Ndii, and other leaders. This team will be responsible for collecting ideas across the country, which will culminate in an economic charter to be signed between county leaders and the coalition.

This approach looks compelling to voters as it shows commitment and transparency, which ensures that the coalition delivers its promises once it secures power. In the past, governments have been making promises that are rarely implemented.
