barriers, team up and put together ideas and resources to help uplift the
living standards of the millions of Kenyans who are struggling at the lower end
of the wealth pyramid,” said Dr. Ruto.
The Wednesday meeting saw leaders led by MPs Naomi Shaban
(Taveta), Jones Mlolwa (Voi), Lydia Haika (Taita Taveta), former Governor John
