He promised to help poor families through receiving compulsory transfers of Sh6000 every month.
“We shall assign at least six police officers in every police station who are trained and equipped to handle police-youth relations in order to restore the relationship between the officers and citizens to one of trust.
“As well as improve terms of service for KDF personnel and police force,
“We shall commence providing social assistance to single mothers, implement a social protection programme for unemployed youths modeled around Kazi Mtaani and review the cost of living with special focus on the pressure of fuel, unga (flour), mobile data and energy,”
