Deputy President William Ruto is a man who knows how to appeal to people from various backgrounds.
The DP had gone to Dandora, Nairobi on Friday, September 20, to inspect the construction work on the Eastern Transmission (Kiambu-Embakasi) Pipeline.
As his entourage manoeuvred the streets of the Eastlands estate, the residents gathered around him to listen to what he had to say.
Being the orator that he is, Ruto engaged with the excited crowd.
"Vijana mpo? Warembo mpo? Mko poa? Mko rieng (Where are you young men? What about the ladies? Are you okay? How is the going?)," Ruto asked, leaving them in stitches.
With the residents excited, the DP could not hold back his laughter.
On other serious matters, the DP spoke about the rate of unemployment, reiterating the government's commitment to address the issue by building investing in technical and vocational education training.
He then also spoke about the main agenda of the day, which was the water shortage in Nairobi.
Ruto revealed that the government planned on using approximately Ksh18 billion on water projects and improvement of sewerage system in Nairobi County, as part of the country’s infrastructural development.
He added that if more people had access to water, it would spur the country’s economic growth and thus transform peoples lives.
Ruto, was accompanied by Embakasi North MP James Gakuya.
He affirmed that the provision of water remained key to the promotion of sustainable socio-economic development and contribute to poverty reduction.
