While David Mwaure was launching the Agano Party’s Manifesto for his presidential campaign, his son Waihiga Mwaura was posting an interesting and curious tweet.
With a huge and majestic following of hundreds of thousands of followers on his Twitter handle, Waihiga Mwaura is undoubtedly one of the most influential online personalities in the country. Interestingly, as his father was launching his Manifesto, he instead chose to tweet about Kenya’s unemployment crisis and the long torturous journeys that the country’s youth often decide to make to the Middle East.
Any thought that his subsequent tweet would perhaps mention something about his father to his countless followers or give him a promotion of sorts was dashed as he proceeded to talk about other candidates in general, and Nairobi’s gubernatorial aspirants in particular. His tweet on unemployment read,
Waihiga Mwaura ￼
It’s been termed as Kenya’s ticking time-bomb. An unemployment crisis which successive Govt’s seem short of answers. With hundreds dashing to the Middle East to seek greener pastures, have we exhausted local opportunities? Join our Twitter Space from 8PM on @citizentvkenya
In the launch, Mwaure Waihiga detailed the plans he has should Kenyans elect him to the country’s top seat come August 9.
Dubbed ‘Badilisha’, English for ‘Change’, Agano’s manifesto makes the proposition of starting from a clean slate and is anchored on 12 Aganos (covenant).
These are: Agano to the constitution, the Family, Women, Youth, Persons Living with Disability, County Governments, Workers, Business Owners, the Economy, Religious Institutions, the Environment, as well as Agano to the International Community
Should he and his running mate, Ruth Mutua, ascend to power in August, David Mwaure has pledged to increase revenue allocation to counties to 40%, designate 10% of the 40% to go directly to the Village councils.
Mr. Mwaure intends to convene a taskforce to study the possibilities of dissolving Nairobi County after this election so that post-2027, Nairobi governor be an appointee of the president after elections and an automatic member of the cabinet.
In his plan for Kenyan workers, he has pledged a general waiver of 50% PAYE, as well as a conducive environment for the private sector, individuals, and others to set up businesses in a bid to boost entrepreneurship.
