Kenyan Deputy President William Ruto, the front-runner to become the nation’s next leader, says he will scale back spending on mega roads, rail and energy projects, rein in debt, and pump more money into small business if he wins this year’s election. Bloomberg reports that the 55-year-old former cabinet minister plans to implement a so-called Bottom-Up model, with the creation of a 200 billion-shilling (about N$27.6 billion) fund for small businesses to expand their production in industries ranging from housing and food-processing to manufacturing. The program, if implemented, would mark a departure from the current administration’s approach of investing billions of dollars in projects funded mainly through loans from China.
