On Monday 4th of March 2013 Kenyans will go to polls to elect their 4th President. These elections are perhaps the most important in our history not just because the electorate will have six ballot papers to deal with but because they are a chance for our beloved nation to redeem itself from the fiasco that was our last elections.But most importantly these elections will be an opportunity for each Kenyan to choose the kind of future they want for our country. Our current president Mr. Mwai Kibaki has done a great job but his successor has an even greater job to do in order to move Kenya forward. In this regards, Kenyans cannot afford to make the mistakes we have made with our past elections. We cannot afford to vote our next crop of leaders based solely on their tribes or popularity, there has to be something more these leaders have to offer. They have to stand for something more than being tribal chiefs.
I hereby submit my list of 10 things I expect the next President to do;
1.The President must have a National standing and be capable of uniting the whole of Kenya. He must be capable of fighting tribalism and act as a symbol of National Unity as it should be.
2. He must fight corruption no matter what.
3. A commitment to the full implementation of the new constitution
4. He must fight insecurity and assure Kenyans of their safety at all times
5.He must promote equity in access to education and make higher education affordable
6.Must improve health and access to health facilities in Kenya and facilitate better remunerations for all health workers
7.Facilitate the creation and full implementation of a National Youth Enterprise Policy to promote youth enterprise as a means of empolyment creation
8.To improve social security and better social welfare for our senoir citizens.
9.To provide incentives to farmers including small scale farmers in order to promote food security in Kenya and ensure that no Kenyan ever dies of hunger.
