Deputy President William Ruto and Willy Paul have partnered in a proposal to make the creative economy flourish.
The deputy president who hosted Willy Paul at his residence in Karen, discussed how music and other domains of entertainment can influence the society positively.
Ruto put a lot of emphasis on his desire to invest in the dreams of young people as he continues to support the ‘hustlers’.
“We are investing in the dreams of young people through creative arts with the appreciation that drama, music, and dance provides positive and powerful social and economic renovation in our society.”
“During the sit down with Willy Paul of the popular hit song “Sitolia”. We agreed to partner in our journey to make the creative economy flourish,” tweeted DP Ruto.
This came after Ruto was booed at the Bomas of Kenya during the BBI launch with several speakers as well as COTU Secretary-General Francis Atwoli, Youth Representative Alex Matere jumbled his initiative of giving out wheelbarrows claiming leaders should invest in more enlightening programs.
Ruto in his defense said that wheelbarrows are used by a lot of youths to earn a living but go unnoticed.
DP Ruto called for a channel of communication during the launch before the BBI is passed and touched on some issues which includes how inclusivity and appointment of IEBC commissioners will be addressed.
“I’ve confessed I’m a scientist but I’m a bit slow. Explain to me how having a President who will appoint the Prime Minister from the winning coalition & runners up being opposition leader will sort out the ‘winner-take-it-all’ question. Forgive me if I’m slow,” he said.
