Nyeri residents protest against Ruto's government after he did this.

A section of Nyeri county residents went up in arms after President William Ruto started his first full day in office yesterday by making an unpopular decision.

 

 

President William Ruto has a lot of expectations from Kenyans following his pledges that he made during the campaigns. The chief hustler as he used to refer to himself during campaigns, promised to turn around the economy and help to uplift the livelihood of Kenyans at large.

 

 

The president during hie maiden speech during his inauguration said that the fuel subsidy was unsustainable and that his government will have to review on how to move forward without the subsidy. Ruto said that the billions of money that he been pumped into the initiative was so huge and that he would consider scrapping it all together.

 

 

His statement was however not received well from a section of Kenyans from Nyeri who allegedly protested the move to scrap the fuel subsidy program. According to a number of residents who spoke to the People Daily, the William Ruto government is doing opposite of what they promised when they were campaigning for the seat.

 

 

According to the residents, scraping the subsidy will have a subsequent effect in the cost of living given the fact that fuel is the main ingredient in the production process.

 

"Nyeri residents have expressed displeasure following the increase in fuel prices, noting that they had high expectations of the cost of fuel going down as they had been promised by the Kenya Kwanza government during the campaigns." Muriuki mwangi a resident noted.

"It is very unfortunate that the bottom up economic model promise is turning to be the going up of prices. I am very stressed because I don't know how to get to work and if I get to work I don't know how to go back home," the Nyeri resident said.
