He promised to inject 50 billion to the small-scale businesses using government money.
“I heard Raila complaining that where am I getting money to give the bodaboda Operators and Mama mboga, I want to tell him that this year I will give 50 billion to the small-scale traders. That is government money,” added the DP.
He promised to fully implement the Big Four agenda by investing 100 billion in the housing sector, Agro-processing, Value addition, and Manufacturing to ensure the youths are employed.
Ruto said he will ensure the slum areas in the Kamukunji Sub County are upgraded.
