Traffic Jam and Congestion


Traffic flow is a problem that we must now solve forever. We waste a lot of time on traffic, let along the greenhouse gases like carbon emissions that pollute our city. We are not not only getting tired but our lungs are also getting dirtier day by day.

Transportation is not a problem that I alone can fix, it’s a problem that will call on board every stakeholder from matutu owners to sacco operators to every day road users.

Goal..

My goal will be to cut your commute time by half and to clean our atmosphere by 40 per cent.

As Governor, I will…

1. Restrain vehicle demand and use. I will slow the growth of carbon emissions by restraining demand for and use of conventional private vehicles. As usual it will come with a great appeal to behavioral change by our private vehicle users to restrain vehicle use to only when necessary. This will give us time to improve on rail and bus transport.

2. Develop an adequate city transport by transforming and developing existing infrastructure,establishing dedicate pedestrian pathways, develop bicycle lanes within the central business district.

3. Introduce a new rail transport system that no doubt will be costly but worth it in the long run.

4. Introduce two freeways in our major highways to ease congestion, introduce a 21st century form of transport(double cabin and double decker Buses)

5. Start a behavioral campaign to change road use by public sector vehicle drivers like lane maintenance, traffic lights Obedience and caring for other road users.

Traffic congestion is a problem that not only affects Nairobi but also mega cities across the world and implementing these policies will solve the following problems….

1. Fix the long hours we spend on traffic in the morning and evening.

2. Reduce matatu rowdiness during rush hours.

3. Lower the level of toxic gases emitted in our atmosphere.

β€œOne way to solve the traffic problem is to keep all the cars that are not paid for off the street ”
Will Rogers

β€œIt’s very shaming, that Nairobi being a center stage for many African events and a shinning city in the hill can’t cut on traffic time in almost 2 decades. Kigali fixed theirs, if they can, then we can three times more. ”


This sounds awesome! What can I do to make it happen?


My campaign touches on a wide range of issues that touches on humanity,this is just one of them. I’m determined to make a city that puts people and quality of life ahead of anything. Through empowerment, we can create a community of freedom and abundance.

Why would we give basic income to the rich?


First to is to eliminate class discrimination and stigma and second wealthy people are more likely to be involved as they will feel a sense of contribution to a greater good of making the world a better place.

Won’t people stop working when given free money?


Harvard and MIT study concluded that there’s no effect of cash transfer on work behavior. Research also shows that people mostly like to be impacted are new mums and kids in school.

In my plan, people will only get Kshs. 10000 which is barely enough to meet all needs. To have a good life, Nairobians will still have to get out and work as they’ve always done in decades behind.

What are the benefits of the Guaranteed income?


1.Guaranteed income encourages people to find work as it’s beneficiaries are free to seek additional sources of income which almost everyone does.
2. It reduces bureaucracy. No need to wait for days to get your money, eligibility is far simple and the cost of giving benefits is greatly reduced.
3. It increases bargaining power for workers. As guaranteed, unconditional income gives them leverage to say No to to exploitative wages and abusive working conditions. No more bullying by employers.
4. It increases entrepreneurship. As it provides for basic needs and acts as a safety net if the business fails. It widens customer base as everyone has disposable income. It would be the greatest catalyst for new jobs, entrepreneurship and creativity.
5. It improves the mental health of recepients. Increased economic security leads to less stress, which means less diseases and self destructive behaviors.
6. It improves physical health.
7. It helps make smarter decisions. It provides needed security to focus on important things like families.
8. Guaranteed Income increases art production, non profit work and caring for loved ones as it provides supplementary income for those interested in labor that isn’t provided by the market.
9. It improves labor market efficiency
10. It improves relationships by reducing domestic violence, child abuse, financial stresses. It ensures that everyone has an optimistic sense of his or her own future and has the mobility to get out of abusive relationship.

Just as the results are remarkable in Canada, so it can be here in Nairobi, a steady source of income can transform a lot of people’s lives.

How would your life be with an extra 10000  shillings in your pocket? How would you spend it?

Why do I Want to implement Guaranteed Income in Nairobi?


I want to implement guaranteed Income because of the highest number of unemployed bright young people in this city. I want to implement guaranteed Income because of beggars along our streets and our street kids who are probably there because their parents don’t have enough to support them.
Nairobi has the brightest minds in the country and yet all these potential goes to waste because young people don’t have the support to pull themselves up. Kshs 10000 may not be a lot but it can help all of us start somewhere. It will cover the basics while enabling us to look for better jobs, start our own businesses, go to school, care for our families and work towards our next big dream

People Centred Economy


Capitalism has led to great innovations and advancement in the living standards of people. It won the war of ideas against socialism. However we have to admit that there’s no such thing as a purely capitalistic economy. Our current focus on corporate profits isn’t really working for many Nairobians. We work really hard, wake up so early for our companies, but that effort isn’t reflected in our payrolls.

We need a human centered economy that’s geared towards maximizing people’s well being and fulfillment. It’s core tenets are :

1. People are more important than money
2. The unit of an economy is the well being of a person not the shilling made.
3. Markets exists to serve our common goals and values not just companies.

Problem to be solved

Companies will start to value things and activities that are core to human experience.

We need markets that serve us rather than markets that we serve. We need a governor that will truly focus on the public interest above anything and lead companies to act appropriately in bettering the lives of Nairobians.

My Goal will be to make the city economy work for everyday commuter and direct money to investments that improve the lives of the people.

As Governor, I will…

1 Change our view of the economy from Gross Domestic Products and stocks to a more caring and valuing set of measurements that ensures that people are thriving. I will encourage mental health awareness, childhood success rate, median income and descent standard of living and finally absense of drug and substance abuse.

2. Encourage company executive to make right decisions and policies for the public rather than focusing on their next positions. And in areas where I’ll have powers to make appointments, I will pay competitive rates with the private sectors to ensure that public company executives also do well.

3. Drive individuals and companies to find innovative ways to improve Nairobians living standard. I will do this by rewarding companies and people who drive significant social value through the good they have done.

In days ahead, I’ll expand to…

Good parenting and caring for the people we love
Teaching and nurturing children
Arts and creative among all Nairobians
Serving the poor
Working in struggling Neighborhoods
Meaningful community connections
Small independent Businesses
Citizen information integrity / Journalism.
Civic engagement
Economic competitiveness and growth
Cultural vibrancy and community integration.
Public safety.

This policy will reshape the way we measure value and progress and help us redefine why we do the things we do. Let’s build a city that makes people’s lives better.
