He said that the government had connected many people to the national grid and they can access electricity anytime.  Mr Ruto also said that young people are able to acquire skills from technical training institutes such as the one at Tseikuru market.

“Students have gotten the opportunity to be trained on technological aspects for job creation. Children of Tseikuru should be armed with certificates that will help them in securing jobs. Are we together residents of Tseikuru?”, he posed.

His eloquent speech was met with cheers from Bodaboda operators and town residents who had come to receive the deputy president.

Kitui County had 14,000 people connected to the national grid in 2013. Today, there are 75,000 residents connected to the Kenya Power electricity, the deputy president reminded residents of Kitui.

Mr Ruto added that electricity connection will go on if he is elected Kenya’s fifth president.

Despite many areas in Kitui County being connected to electricity, the quality has been poor. Residents endure days without electricity and are forced to used generators or close their businesses that rely on power until it is reconnected.

In a characteristic demeanour of pushing the Hustler narrative, Ruto declared that it is the ordinary wananchi who will determine those to lead them in the next polls “not those in hotels and offices in Nairobi”
