Dr Ruto asked Kenyans to rally behind Kenya Kwanza “to end political conmanship in our country”.

He said his administration will ensure that every Kenyan accesses economic opportunities fairly, their backgrounds notwithstanding.

“You will be voting for an economic revolution this August; a vote for Kenya Kwanza will be a vote for your well-being.”

“We will do this by creating a conducive business environment and investing in labour-intensive programmes that will generate jobs for our youth,” he explained.

He added that Kenya Kwanza will reduce the cost of living so that families can be rescued from the jaws of desperation and poverty.

“We have no corners to cut but to support our farmers to have requisite inputs to produce more.”

On his part, Gachagua promised to reform the public service by motivating them to serve Kenyans better.

“Career progression will be defined without favouritism or political interference,” noted the Mathira MP who so also the Kenya Kwanza running-mate.

Wahome assured the youth, women and people living with disabilities that it is in Kenya Kwanza that their future lies.
