Delivering Change in KenyaINTRODUCTION
So many promises have been made, fine blueprints drawn, impressiveaction plans, visions and roadmaps published, all of which have been metwith very little or no action whatsoever. Kenya is not short of ideas.Government has never lacked the guidance of visionary notions. Whathas been missing is the right combination of bold ambition andconscientious execution that is required to translate ideas, promises, plans, blue prints, visions and roadmaps into results that improvecitizens’ lives.Throughout my career in leadership, I have done my utmost, often indifficult circumstances, to match my undertakings to the people withactual delivery of results. If leadership and high office is a public trust, itfollows that a failure to fulfil any promise constitutes an abuse of trust.Just as the shortest distance between two places is the straight line joiningthem, the best way to solve problems is simple, direct ACTION:implementation and execution.In Jubilee, I join patriots whose vision for Kenya transcends partisanship,tribe, creed and race. I am at home with servants of the people whosecourage, passion, vision and energy is committed to national service ONEHUNDRED PER CENT. We are totally committed to the vision of a prosperous, just, secure and modern country. Therefore, we arecompletely invested in the total implementation of the Constitution, fullexecution of Vision 2030, national reconciliation, unity, peace andstability,and the complete realisation of every citizen's aspirations.
When the TNA proclaimed 'I Believe', we heard them, loud and clear. Itis manifest that the vision for a fulfilled Kenyan dream is an article of faith, and an aspiration worthy of anyone's life and labour. When we atURP say 'Kusema na Kutenda', we do not hesitate, stammer or whisper, because we have confidence that Jubilee is neither short on vision, energyor execution. Scripture condemns faith without action as empty noise. Wein Jubilee agree.I therefore want to highlight a few proposals that the Jubilee Coalitionhas set out in order to demonstrate that our manifesto is not a 'pie-in-the-sky' proposition, but an actual demonstrable, feasible programme for national transformation that can and will be achieved in the time, with theresources and by the people that we have here in Kenya.I submit to you, dear brothers and sisters, that Jubilee is the rightleadership to steer our country for the next five years and beyond not only because it has the vision and the energy, but also these two reasons:First,we are on a path of transformation – transforming Kenya through newleadership that is inclusive, founded on merit, performance based,results- oriented and focused on the public good. A leadership which willmatch what is said with what gets done.Secondly, the Jubilee leadership seeks to unleash the full potential of theKenyan people because 50 years after independence our country should be self- reliant. We will achieve this by addressing the fundamental issuesof youth empowerment, security and devolution.
The youth are our strength, our wealth and the drivers of innovation. Wewill make a deliberate and systematic effort to appropriately equip andempower the youth of Kenya to attain and realize their full potential.High unemployment remains one of the greatest challenges facing our country. Currently, 70% of unemployed people in Kenya are youth.Because the education system in Kenya is not geared towards marketdemand, 92% of unemployed youth have some form of formal education but do not posses any relevant skills.In order to tap their immense potential, harness their talent, knowledge,expertise and energy, the Jubilee government will:
Re-engineer education;
We will put premium on technical education and training by emphasizingits importance to economic development and wealth creation.To beginwith, in the first six months, we will undertake a national audit of skillsand competencies and align training opportunities and resources torespond to national and county human resource demands. Alongside this,we will develop a framework for identifying children’s inborn abilitiesand talents and align these with early childhood education and future professional training. To empower youth with effective and relevantskills required to service a modern economy, we will establish Institutesof Technolog in every County Ward throughout Kenya. Basic vocationalskills at these institutions will be offered free of charge.
