“That was campaign stuff and elections are over!” Ruto’s top ally finally says it openly when asked why Bottom-up is no longer spoken of

In what has been a long time coming and began by Senator Boni Khalwale referring to Matatu drivers derogatorily days after their win, and more recently Moses Kuria scolding squatters, one of the president’s top aides finally laid it bare as it is without batting an eyelid.

It all began with concerns raised by president William Ruto’s Economic Advisor David Ndii’s follower named Yuka. Yuka wondered why the outspoken Economist was no longer as vocal about the Bottom-up Model as he was before. His tweet read,
Replying to @DavidNdii
How’s bottom up manenos,Daktari? Tweet about that, with the same zeal you did B4 the elections, shall you?

In a blunt and unapologetic admission, Ndii said that the campaign ended and the mission was accomplished, adding that he now has a different thing to do and matters dealing with communication are handled by Hussein Mohammed. His tweet read,
David Ndii
Campaign ended. Mission accomplished. My JD changed. Our spokesperson is @HusseinMohamedg

Back in June during his Manifesto launch, then Deputy President William Ruto unveiled the Kenya Kwanza alliance manifesto, in which he elaborated the policies that informed his much touted bottom-up economic model.
According to Ruto, he argued that an economic policy should ensure capital in a manner that benefits the most amount of people and the country, at large.

He cited a report which stated that only 19 million Kenyans are employed currently; out of which only 3 million (15%) are in formal jobs – or what he terms as the ‘lottery economy’ – while the other 16 million (85%) work in Micro. Small and Medium sized Enterprises (MSME).
“According to Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) data in 2016, licensed stable MSMEs generated an operating surplus of Ksh.50,000 per employee a month, while those in the ‘lottery’ economy generated Ksh.3,250,” read the manifesto.
“In other words, the workers in formal MSMEs were 15 times more productive than those in the lottery economy.”
DP Ruto noted that the bottom-up economic model will be geared towards bringing down the cost of living, eradicating hunger, creating jobs, expanding the tax base, improving the country’s foreign exchange balance as well as inclusive growth.
