DP Ruto: I’ve confessed I’m a scientist but I’m a bit slow. Explain to me how having a President who will appoint the Prime Minister from the winning coalition & runners up being opposition leader will sort out the ‘winner-take-it-all’ question. Forgive me if I’m slow
1. Access to Justice
We should establish More Courts
High Court in every County
Ombudsman is an abuse of Judiciary
2. BBI Launch: IEBC
parties appoint commissioners to IEBC,…My Brother Raila Odinga is good at football to let me try and ask; How fair a league will be a referee is appointed by teams and not all the team but some specific teams.
How fair will this league be???… if you tell me it is okay for some teams and not all the teams to participate in appointing the referee if that is what you are saying I have my reservations… if you think it’s fair I have a different opinion and maybe we will have around meeting somewhere…”
We must review the issue of Political Parties Commissioners
How fair will be a Football league where a referee is appointed by teams and NOT all teams, – I have my reservations of such
3. Independence of Police Force
A Police Council chaired by CS – It is a deviation from the independence of the police
Today you may have a foot on one shoe, tomorrow it will be different. We must make laws for Posterity
4. BBI Launch: Devolution
Senate must be empowered.
That the Senate cannot continue to have the constitutional mandate of Revenue allocation is to downgrade Senate
Upgrade Senate to Upper House
Women Go the Senate – you cannot downgrade the Senate when you move women to Senate
Make women Substantive decision-makers, not Nominal leaders
5. BBI Launch: Agriculture
We need issues of Minimum Guarantee included on all issues of our farmers from Coffee, Tea, Sugar and the Dairy Sector too
We must have a discussioun about the issues of ordinary people.
BBI must ensure that it includes concrete proposals on their issues
