Hustler politics

Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu has taken a swipe at Deputy President William Ruto, indirectly linking him to the mess caused by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.

Wambugu on Thursday night posted a message where he claimed that the hustler brand of politics had been destroyed by Sonko's failure to deliver services in Nairobi.

In an indirect reference to Ruto, the MP further advised those seeking the Presidency through the hustler brand to reconsider as that was bound to fail.

"Nairobians decided to elect a ‘hustler’ as Governor of the capital city of Kenya…See your life."


"As for those who have been selling the ‘Hustler-for-President’ brand. You will need to reconsider…It’s just been destroyed," Ngunjiri stated.

The statement sparked quick reactions on social media as users expressed divided opinion on the matter.

The Nyeri Town legislator has in the recent months emerged as a strong critic of a internal camp in the Jubilee Party that has been campaigning for Ruto's 2022 presidential bid.
