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.

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

“It’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. ”

My proposal on women’s Right


I’m a firm believer that women empowerment has become a force that cannot be reckoned with. I’m a believer that my sisters deserve equal treatment just as I do. Women deserve to be heard because they too have a voice on things that affect this city.

I have sisters and female friends who complain everyday about them being victims of sexual harrasment in our streets, Buses, places of work etc. We must all work together to make Nairobi a women conducive county.

I also understand the struggles of new mothers, the need to keep your job and to care for your new baby.

I understand the payment disparity that happens in companies to operate right here in Nairobi.

I also understand that some women are also victim of domestic violence.

My Goal…


To create an accommodating County for both men and women, a county where all are able of treating one another with mutual respect and admiration.

As Governor, I will…

1. Protect women from harassment, discrimination and violence by placing a high penalty on the following acts :Wolf whistling(whistles to express admiration on the streets), catcalling, asking intrusive questions, unwanted following or even unceasing asking of telephone numbers and finally invasion of personal space.

2.Pass a violence against women policy that will abolish complete laying of hands on women.

3. Appeal to companies within the county to adopt equal pay for equal work policy to ensure women and men get paid equally.

4. Appeal to organizations to have stick laws against sexual harrasment and a complete ban from operation on companies that do not comply.

5. Reduce day care cost to make it more affordable for our hard working new mothers.

Problems solved…

End to domestic violence.

End to gender pay gap.

End to street and sexual harrasment.

End to long time of silence 狼 among women.

The process of spotting fear and refusing to obey it is the source of all true empowermentMartha Beck

Empowerment of women is the empowerment of the nation. No household, no society no state, no country has ever moved forward without empowering its womenNaveen Patnaik

In days ahead, I will include the following proposition : Paid family leave, access to affordable childcare, sick days, vacation time and healthy work environment for casual laborers.

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.

What you can do? Contribute by telling your friends about me and feel part of this great cause by sharing. Thanks 😊

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.

Won’t people spend their money on things like drugs and alcohol?


In many studies where cash is given to the poor, there has been no increase in drug and substance abuse, let alone increase in alcohol consumption. The idea that people will misuse guaranteed Income seems like a biased stereotype far from the truth.

Decision making improves when people have economic security. As Dutch philosopher Rutger Bregman says, Poverty is not a lack of character rather a lack of cash
