United Democratic Alliance (UDA) presidential candidate has said phone calls will be free in his government should he win the August 9 presidential election.

Speaking in Nairobi on Wednesday, Ruto said he will make sure that every household will be connected to WiFi to ensure that everyone makes phone calls free of charge through WhatsApp.

"Just the way we did the last mile for electricity, we will also do the last mile for internet connection across the country so that every household and market is connected to WiFi," he said.

The Deputy President said the program will cost the government Ksh38 billion to roll out.

"We have said, the way we are making roads for people to use for free, we should also connect houses to the internet for free," he said.

Ruto was attending the launch of the Kiambu County Hustler Fund spearheaded by Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria.

"The Hustler Fund will ensure every ordinary Kenyan goes up the economic ladder, hence help reduce poverty in our country," he said during the event.
