Vice President William Ruto used the Bible to explain his “bottom-up” business model which has become a subject of debate in recent weeks.
Speaking to worshipers at St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church in Lang’ata, Nairobi on Sunday, Ruto compared the bottom-up business model to the sermon in Psalms 113: 7-8.
Psalms 113: 7-8 state: “He lifts the poor out of the dust and lifts the needy out of the heap of ashes; he makes them sit down with the princes of his people. “
He challenged critics of ascending economic philosophy to read the Bible verse, saying it sums up the philosophy.
“Neno la Mungu linatuambia Mungu humtoa mnyonge mavumbini,” said Ruto.
Ruto, who is considering the presidency in 2022, has pledged to use the business model to jumpstart the country’s economy and improve the lives of low-income people.
“BOTTOM-UP is focused on the DELIBERATE creation of jobs, the LIBERATION of scam businesses from the exploitation of shylock credit and unfair regulation and the EMPOWERMENT of our resource-poor farmers / ranchers to produce in order to produce them. free from slavery / the indignity of relief food aid, ”Ruto said on Twitter on Saturday.
He added that the bottom-up conversation “will bury tribalism, favoritism, cronyism and corruption.”
“We have the opportunity to make peace with mediocrity of leader-centered policies, position / power sharing and the failure of the trickle-down economy OR increase our game towards the PEOPLE-CENTERED model AND DOWN which is DELIBERATELY focusing on a labor intensive infrastructure / manufacturing investments, ”he added.
