Transport Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) Wavinya Ndeti has asked youths to stop calling themselves hustlers saying that that was demeaning them and showing that they cannot make something good out of their life.
Speaking at Matetani In Kangundo Subcounty of Machakos County, Wavinya said that the word Hustler did not mean hardworking unlike how the Deputy President William Ruto who calls himself a ” hustler” meant that he came out of nothing worked and now he is something in the country.
“Youths you are going by calling yourself hustlers which simply means that you are poor so stop calling yourself that because what you confess is what you possess, why would you just stand and call yourself I am a” hustler” go and first check the meaning in the dictionary before you call yourself that, ” she said.
She went ahead and also urged youths all over the country to think of developmental issues and stop engaging themselves in dirty politics and abusing each other because of their candidates but rather let the politicians fight their own battles.
“Youths let us be very careful because there is some heat that is being ignited politically and youths are being used for it and it is not good. Today even if you wake up and go fight for Wavinya or any other politician when you die none of them will recognize your death leave alone your burial so do not fight for them. Leave them alone to fight their own battles and focus on what can make your life better, “Wavinya urged youths.
Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) secretary-general Francis Atwoli Thursday took a swipe at Deputy President William Ruto over the hustler tag. He said a hustler is a person who obtains money through fraud or a male prostitute.
“The brief meaning of hustler is this, a person who implies fraudulent or unscrupulous methods to obtain money. He is a swindler and informal. If you go further utapata a hustler is a male prostitute,” Atwoli said.
