How Azimio Will Finance Manifesto


Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition on Monday launched its manifesto which highlighted a number of projects they will work on for the first 100 days in office.

The event which took place at Nyayo stadium in Nairobi was witnessed by a number of political parties under the Azimio One Kenya coalition umbrella.

The coalition’s presidential running mate, Martha Karua while speaking to the media after the launch revealed that, they have an elaborate plan on how they will finance the key projects highlighted in the manifesto.

Karua explained that their first move will be declaring corruption a national security issue so that they recover all the money lost in graft.

Karua further noted that sealing corruption loopholes will be their priority should they clinch power because a lot of money is lost annually.

In the manifesto, the coalition has pledged to provide a monthly stipend of Ksh.6000 to every needy household in the country, which Karua said will be achieved using the money that will be recovered from graft, claiming that over Ksh.800 billion is lost to corruption annually while the project will only need roughly 120 to 150 billion in a year.

“Remember we are losing over Ksh800 billion to corruption. There is money, and we will be able to do these things”, she said.

Odinga’s running mate candidate also added that their government intents to restructure the finance sector so as to contain rising debts in the country she says will be achieved by efficiently using what the country has.

“Debt is not bad, but the first step is efficiency to use what we have,” she added.
