Fernandes Barasa, who is a candidate in the upcoming Kakamega gubernatorial election, has a manifesto anchored on six pillars: health, sanitation, and hygiene; wealth creation; food security; good governance; social development; and education.
As part of his strategy to facilitate his manifesto, intends to come up with a county bursary scheme and a scholarship program that he says will improve access to high-quality university studies among vulnerable youth.
Barasa also has a plan to set aside an Sh20 million allocation as the Ward Development Fund to allow county resources to reach those at the grassroots level.
On the side of infrastructure, he plans to set up a better road network across the county, such as in Navakholo Constituency, where he agrees that it needs better roads to facilitate sugar production.
In that regard, he has a plan to revive the Mumias Sugar Company to boost the economy of the country and improve livelihoods.
“Our Food Security agenda will see areas like Likuyani and Lugari benefit not just Kakamega County but the entire Country. We shall invest in value addition and agro-industries, and target the Dairy sector to enhance sustainable food supply on an industrial scale,” Barasa tweeted.
Curtains for the campaigns are falling tomorrow with each camp expected to hold mega rallies supported by their party leaders.
The elections were suspended after a mix-up in candidates identities on the ballot papers.
