As Kenyans get ready to usher in the new administration, President-elect William Ruto has promised to change how things are done in his government.
During a thanksgiving service Sunday morning in Meru, he promised to deal with the Miraa cartels and have talks with Somalia’s president for a smooth trade partnership between the two countries.
President-elect William Ruto urged hustlers to reduce borrowing and practice a saving culture.
“When you find yourself in a hole, the logical thing is to stop digging, so I asked them whether we could stop. They, told me we have to continue digging but, I assure Kenyans that we will get out of it,” he said.
He also maintained that the government would put laws that would see Kenyans save money, which the government could borrow for development projects.
All these include an overhaul of the government, which Ruto has promised to start as soon as he is sworn in on Tuesday, where over 20 Heads of state are expected to attend.
