SUMMARY

“I had their balance, which they asked me top up and buy a specialised machine that will help them fasten their workmanship. I promised to invest in their dream and support their hustle.

“Stephen Odhiambo and Dennis Omondi delivered the innovative work of their hands this afternoon,” wrote Ruto.

Weeks after he hosted them at his Karen residence, Deputy President William Ruto on Thursday revealed that he had cleared the balance he owed to carpenters who delivered furniture to his place.

The two, Stephen Odhiambo and Dennis Omondi, delivered additional furniture to the DP and he promised to support their hustle.

“I had their balance, which they asked me top up and buy a specialised machine that will help them fasten their workmanship. I promised to invest in their dream and support their hustle.

“Stephen Odhiambo and Dennis Omondi delivered the innovative work of their hands this afternoon,” wrote Ruto.

The DP first met the two in late June, buying a number of pieces from them.

In what many Kenyans on social media described as hustler vs hustlers meeting, he invited them to his Karen home, praising them for their outstanding work.

Earlier, the Deputy President continued with his empowerment programme to youths of Westlands, Kasarani, Embakasi East and Kamkunji constituencies; supporting them with carts, wheelbarrows, power generators, screen printing equipment, water tanks and salon equipment.

“We recognise micro, small and medium-sized businesses as central forces of innovation, job creation and economic growth in our country.

“As such, we have the duty of nurturing and uplifting them into large firms by providing a conducive environment if we are to industrialise,” he tweeted.
