President William Ruto on Sunday, December 11, announced that the government will be graduating students from the Global Hustler Academy during the Jamhuri Day celebrations. 

The Global Hustler Academy is a product of Google that offers a free program for participants and lasts for one week. 

Speaking during the start of Jamhuri celebrations, the President indicated that Google already knew that there are hustlers in Kenya and that is why it launched the project. 

"I am not the one who started this hustler academy. This is a Google Academy and it started before all these hustler issues came in. They already knew there is a hustler somewhere," the President announced.
