Deputy President William Ruto has invaded his political archrival Raila Odinga’s political strongholds with his hustler movement as the 2022 succession politics takes shape.
Ruto’s hustler narrative, which seeks a more bottom-up approach system of governance has seen him earn praise and criticism in equal measure as he continues to build sizeable support for his presidential bid.
On Saturday, February 20, the second in command’s brother, David Ruto was spotted spreading the gospel of the hustlers in Kisumu.
David held a fundraiser for Nyamasaria boda boda riders which collected a significant amount of money for the motorists who are among the major focus of the hustler movement.

The DP, has, on numerous occasions held similar harambees for boda boda riders around the country affirming his commitment to better the lives of small-business owners through his movement.
A fortnight ago, Ruto pledged KSh 29 billion for hustlers if he clinches the presidency in the 2022 polls.
Speaking in Mtwapa, Ruto said just like the Jubilee government allocates KSh 100 million for development to every constituency, he will similarly ensure hustlers get the same amount for their enterprises once he rises to the top seat.

That notwithstanding, the government is seeking to criminalise the hustler versus dynasty narrative on the grounds it is causing class wars.
The lawmakers want class added as one of the basis of hate speech as the law only talks about discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, nationality and religion.
They opined there is no difference between those propagating hate along tribal lines and those spreading division using the hustler versus dynasty narrative.
