Deputy President William Ruto has once again boasted of several government projects.
While addressing residents of Kilgoris in Transmara on Thursday, October 7, 2021, Ruto took credit for the ongoing and completed government projects.
Among the projects are a sugarcane factory, road constructions, a teacher-training college and electricity access in Narok County.
He said this while continuing to criticize Raila and Uhuru for the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
“I am neither a drunkard nor a fool, and I am not mad as well. I have said that those who are seeking to create positions for themselves by amending the constitution will have to wait until the youth have jobs,” stated Ruto.
While addressing hundreds of residents who lend him an ear, Ruto promised to improve the lives of Small and Medium Entrepreneurs and the youths.
“While we were here in 2013, only 20,000 households were connected to electricity. Now there are about 90,000 connected households,” the DP said.
He added that because all those projects were successful, one important thing remaining is to create jobs for the youth and support SMEs.
“We don’t want the rich to disturb us with constitutional amendments to create seats for themselves. That will wait until we all have jobs,” Ruto added.
He also said unlike his UDA party, his rivals have no proven track record and that their only agenda is fighting him.
“I helped President Uhuru build new roads and even a railway line, do you think implementing the Bottom-up economic model is hard for me?” he posed.
After the address, he donated one million shillings to women in small businesses and Sh 3 million to Boda Boda operators in Migori.
