Deputy President William Ruto has reiterated that his hustler movement’s bottom-up economic model is the new pattern that will free the country from over reliance on foreign loans.

Ruto was speaking at his Karen residence as he hosted a delegation of grassroots, political and religious leaders from Makueni.

The DP says he is focused on having discussions around people-centred issues with tangible life changing results.

“The plan will not only put money in ordinary people's pockets, but also widen our taxbase and reduce over-reliance on foreign loans for development,” Ruto said.

According to Ruto, the model will spearhead the basics that will form the foundation of sustainable economic growth.

“The Bottom-up economic model we are advancing is an appreciation of the fact that we must fix the basics that will form the foundation of sustainable economic growth,” Ruto said.

The DP has time and again defended his bottom-up economic model and told off his political opponents.

Ruto has made it clear that he is positioning himself for the top job in next year’s general elections.
