William Ruto, the vice president, today unveiled his five-point platform in front of the elections on August 9.
Ruto's manifesto will have a strong foundation thanks to a number of important themes, including;
Using input financing and extensive agricultural extension support, Kenya Kwanza Alliance has pledged to set aside Sh250 billion in the fiscal years 2023–2027 to turn 2 million impoverished farmers from food-deficit to surplus producers.
(2) Restructuring the economy of micro, small, and medium-sized businesses (MSME)
Kenya Kwanza has pledged to providing MSME with sh50 billion annually in affordable finance through SACCOs, venture capital, equity funds, and long-term debt for start-ups in an effort to halt the criminalization of employment.
(3) Housing and settlement
By allowing low cost mortgages of $10,000 and below, he said that his government will also increase the number of mortgages from 30, 000 to 100,000.
The afya bora Mashinani, which will be focused on primary healthcare and prioritize preventative and promotional services, was promised by Kenya Kwanza.
Additionally, he stated that the portion of the annual government budget devoted to health will rise from 4% to 15%.
(5 ) Instruction
Within two fiscal years, the Kenya Kwanza campaign pledged to solve the current 116,000-person teacher shortage gap.
By establishing alternative entry criteria, he continued, they will also reassess the current exam-based system of academic progression, which they claim has disqualified millions of students based on education ecit examinations.
