It appeared like just another catchy political slogan, whose definition and specifics, have continued to illicit mixed reactions in the Kenyan political scene.
The hustler narrative that has been the Deputy President’s campaign tool.
However his critics now maintain that Ruto is out to ensure that the hustlers he is talking about are not empowered.

Its proponents insist that this is a revolutionary system that will fundamentally transform the economic fortunes of millions of ordinary Kenyans.
