Deputy President William Ruto’s sizable crowds are, in fact, rented, according to newly-nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura.
This comes after Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria claimed that Ruto has no supporters but has hired cheerleaders to give the impression that he is well-liked across the nation.
Mwaura admitted in an interview that Ruto constantly charters crowds to his rallies in an effort to trick Kenyans into thinking he has a sizable following. Mwaura had unsuccessfully sought the UDA ticket to run for the Ruiru parliamentary seat.
Politics, in Mwaura’s opinion, is all about perception, which is why Ruto and his Kenya Kwanza ferry the crowd in an effort to appear popular.
Mwaura continued by stating that the majority of young people are available for hire due to a lack of worthwhile career opportunities.
He claimed that a young person would rather be given Sh500 to go to Ruto’s rally than to merely sit around the house doing nothing.
