About five weeks are remaining before Kenya holds the next general election.Top Presidential contenders have made various promises to Kenyans of what they will do once they ascend to power after the general election.Both the Azimio one Kenya alliance and the Kenya Kwanza alliance coalition which are the top most political coalitions have already launched their manifestos.Raila Odinga of Azimio launched his in mid June and Ruto together with Roots party presidential candidate Wajackoyah launched theirs on 30th June.
At the moment William Ruto's manifesto has gained momentum by the much love and hate that it has garnered from supporters and non supporters.The Azimio one Kenya alliance has been criticising it by saying that Ruto did not show how he will be fighting corruption.
Another details that has caught the attention of Kenyans is that Ruto has promised to form a judicial team that will investigate the actions and policies that Uhuru Kenyatta has implemented.Ruto also intends to reverse some of the policies and also the nation reports that Ruto went fear to go after Uhuru legally if he wins the election.The main reason for doing this as reported by the nation is to end state capture.
In the Kenya Kwanza Manifesto that was recently launched,one of the things promised is to end state capture and also forming an inquiry tribunal to check on enforced disappearances and extra judicial killing.These actions would mean questioning how Uhuru ran his government and possible prosecution where necessary. He also vowed to create eight tribunals, taskforces and review panels to reverse Mr Kenyatta’s policies.
The actions Ruto has promised against his predecessor have been ruled out by the Secretary general of Jubilee party MP Jeremiah Kioni who has said that Ruto has intentions of overthrowing the constitution.If Ruto becomes the president and actualised that,his actions may plunge the country into chaos and anarchy especially by those who oppose him.
