Ruto meets political leaders, opinion shapers from Western Kenya in Naivasha
Deputy President William Ruto is currently meeting leaders from Western Kenya in Naivasha, Nakuru County as he continues to strengthen his support base by selling his bottom-up economic model.
The DP, who flew to Naivasha on Sunday afternoon from a church service in Murang'a, said the regional sessions will culminate into national economic agreement.
"It's our belief that an economic paradigm shift that focuses on ordinary Kenyans — small businesses and farmers — will lead to an economic revolution," the DP said.
Among those who are attending the Naivasha forum are political leaders, professionals, civil society and other stakeholders from Busia, Kakamega, Vihiga and Bungoma counties.
The DP has been meeting regional opinion shapers from across the country in and outside Nairobi with the latest being the forum between him and leaders from Luo Nyanza Counties.
In July, the DP met political leaders and other stakeholders from Kisii region in Nakuru.
The Naivasha meeting started on Sunday August 22 and will end today August 23.
