Ruto defends hustler narrative, hints at exiting Jubilee

By Stephen Rutto | March 25th 2021
Deputy President William Ruto.

Deputy President William Ruto has defended his Hustler Nation narrative, saying it is a global phenomenon, hinting at exiting the Jubilee party soon.

In a live broadcast with a local radio station Thursday morning, the DP said politicians opposing the hustler narrative don’t want Kenyans to unite.

He said the movement will create investment opportunities for 16 million poor Kenyans, who will, in turn, be placed on the country’s tax bracket.

“Those claiming that it is about hustlers versus dynasties want to taint the movement…. It is not a competition between the poor and the rich,” Ruto said.

He said he will officially move to the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) if the Party continues to sideline him and his allies.

In a strong defense of his association with UDA, Ruto said the wheelbarrow party is an affiliate of Jubilee, and that the outfit has a coalition agreement with the ruling party.

His sentiments are coming hot on the heels of a series of meetings to kick Ruto out of the Jubilee Party.
