Following their reception, Ruto noted that they conveyed their opinion in the necessity for a new paradigm shift in order to develop Kenya’s economy from the ground up.
“The Kenya Kwanza team is growing bigger each day. 30 elected MCAs from Kiambu County led by County Assembly Speaker Hon Stephen Ndichu have quit Jubilee and joined UDA. They believe that there should be a new paradigm shift to build our economy from the bottom. Karibuni Hustler Nation!” he announced it on his Facebook page.
