The First Pillar – Inclusivity and Unity

My leadership will not only seek to involve all Dagoretti South Constituents in the creation of a better constituency for all but will definitely not segregate anyone on the basis of tribe, religion, origin, ability or disability, age, gender, economic status, family background, race or creed.

I believe in one Dagoretti South Constituency free from discrimination, one people, one mission – to make a better constituency for all.  My aim is to preside over a leadership that inspires the diffusion of tensions and rivalry and to unite all Dagoretti South Citizens.

Cohesion

The Situation

Historical and systemic exclusion in the past have left increasing numbers of Dagoretti South Constituents disenfranchised.  Their collective potential and contribution has been wasted.  Past politics of division along ethnic, gender, age and economic classes have brewed a culture of intolerance perfect for incubation all manner of social ills.The ticking social crisis time bomb explodes in the form of poverty, hopelessness and insecurity.

The Opportunity

“Kamuingi koyaga ndīrī” – Together we can, Unity is Strength

Dagoretti South enjoys a colourful blend of beautiful, talented and diverse peoples from all walks of life with great potential of building the model constituency in Kenya.  Dagoretti South Constituency has a rich and deep history and has made its more than fair share of contribution to Kenya’s history.  Dagoretti South Constituency has produced Kenya’s finest in all spheres of life – Politics, Society and Economics.  Great leaders of note in this country trace their routes or have had a sojourn in this great constituency.  Leading minds in academia, sports and industry have been born, harboured or incubated in Dagoretti South Constituency.

I believe that if our diversity is well utilized, our people are the greatest asset and greatest resource we have.  It is our Dagoretti South, to build, regardless of ethnicity, gender or religion.

Security

The Situation

With a marked increase of disenfranchised youth and jobless people, unplanned development and sprouting of informal settlements, Nairobi in general and Dagoretti South in particular has witness increased cases of insecurity.

The opportunity
