Amb. Serem Seeks To Involve Locals in Developing Her Manifesto

Uasin Gishu gubernatorial aspirant Amb. Sarah Serem has taken a new approach in developing her manifesto for the people of Uasin Gishu.

The former Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) chairperson notes that she will be engaging locals – whose views on various issues will form part of the manifesto.

We are adopting an inclusive and participatory approach in our manifesto-making process. I believe that the agenda comes from the people and by the people and for the people,” Amb. Serem said in a post on her official Facebook page.

Formerly a Kenyan envoy to China, Sarah Serem officially launched her Uasin Gishu gubernatorial campaigns about a fortnight ago.

Since then, she has been moving around the county, engaging locals of different walks.

“From our meet-the-people tours, we are appreciative of the uniqueness of every ward in Uasin Gishu and the yearnings of the people, therefore acceptance and relevance of the agenda are of great importance in this process,” she noted.

Amb. Serem is now challenging her competitors “to quit the old, exclusive, leadership-directed boardroom manifesto” which, according to her, “don’t echo the unique interests of the people”.

For her, people are not interested in how many agendas an aspirant has, “but rather what value and change will those agendas cause in transforming their lives”.

Among the areas that she hopes to incorporate in her development agenda are youth empowerment, infrastructure, water, and health – all of which were issues raised by locals during a meet-the-people-tour in Kesses Sub County.

We have had a conversation and have committed ourselves to invest in high-impact projects that will create jobs and provide income to thousands of households in kesses! This will reduce poverty and drive economic growth in our county. We shall address the issues of Road networks, water scarcity, unemployment, health facilities, youth, women and PWD’s empowerment, and markets for our produce,” noted Amb. Sarah Serem.

The former SRC boss is among the leading candidates for the Uasin Gishu gubernatorial seat.

She will battle for a UDA ticket alongside Jonathan Bii, Soy MP Caleb Kositany, Prof. Julius Bitok, Veska Kangogo and Ng’enyilel MCA David Sing’oei among others
