FLICKER OF LIGHT
I, JOHN BOSCO KYULE, my Running Mate, CRISPINE ONYANGO and my Campaign Team, present our candidature for the seat of President and Running Mate Bunge la Mwananchi (BLM) respectively.
My Running Mate and I pledge the following should you elect us on 19th August 2015:
- Bunge Economic Empowerment
We shall encourage BLM members to form Self Help Groups (SHG) and Saving and Credit Societies (SACOS) to enable them access credit and opportunities provided by devolved funds. This shall turn BLM into a strong economic block that shall secure BLM independence from donors.
- Bunge Structure
We shall create several committees that shall ensure all members of BLM take part in decision making. In the past, lack of structures has led to leaders working as individuals. The structures shall ensure BLM unity. Though my Running Mate and I have not served in BLM leadership in the past, we have been here long enough to know that the BLM must be structured for prosperity.
- Bunge Rules and Regulations
We shall work with the BLM Speaker and Legal Secretary to develop BLM Rules and Regulations to streamline BLM operations and to support BLM structures.
- Coordinating with other Bunges
We shall work with BLM Speaker and National Coordinator to develop a communication system that shall ensure that BLM provides leadership and amplifies the voices in the grassroots. That there are strong BLMs in Nakuru, Mombasa, Kisumu, Kakamega, Kericho, Eldoret, Makueni, Siaya, Migori, Kwale, Mathare, Kangemi, Kawangware Muslim etc is not in contention. All is needed is visits and exchange programs for solidarity.
- Bunge Aspirants Forum
We shall organize all BLM aspirants for 2017 into an Aspirants Forum that can access resources and plan together. We shall get in touch with MCAs Leonard Oriaro and Kelly Musyoka who are members of BLM to advice and guide us in this.
- Bunge Women Empowerment
We shall work with BLM women, Bunge la Wamama, Wanawake Sasa na Uongozi, Wanawake Mashinani and BLM Woman Rep to mobilize more women into BLM and to form them into SHGs and SACOS that can save for economic empowerment and also push for two-thirds gender rule.
- Constitution of Kenya 2010 Implementation
We shall work with Human Rights Defenders (HRDs) in BLM and BLM Legal Secretary to push for full and proper implementation of Constitution of Kenya 2010 for the benefit of all Kenyans.
- Pan African Movement – Kenya
We congratulate BLM, PAM-KE for defending BLM and PAM-KE from selfish interests. We shall work with BLM, PAM-KE to strengthen it and take it to grassroots as we believe BLM is the true Pan African Movement that is people driven.
- Human Rights Defenders
We shall work with BLM members who are Human Rights Defenders (HRDs) to not only strengthen their work within BLM but also to start a campaign to call on the state to drop all charges against HRDs pending in court together with BLM Legal Secretary.
Finally, in honor of the founders of BLM who in the face of police brutality, stood firm and who in the face of tribal division, stood with unity, we need to stand firm and vote for change so that we can turn BLM weaknesses into strength and BLM threats into opportunities.
We are aware that there are those who doubt whether we can make it. We understand your doubt given the state of things right now. All presidential candidates shall present to you their speeches, manifestos and strategies. This happens after every two years in BLM and after the polls all is swept under the carpet and special interest groups and cartels move in and members are left alone disappointed. We offer hope, a “FLICKER OF LIGHT” that shall turn things around with your help. Let’s unite to defeat the cartels that have taken over BLM, reclaim our membership in BLM and restore our sense of common purpose. No obstacle, challenge or threat can withstand the power of voices of members of BLM calling for change. Today we call upon you and it is time for you to answer that call and vote for change.
On 19th August 2015, VOTE FOR JOHN BOSCO KYULE and CRISPINE ODHIAMBO as President and Running Mate for change. SMS any questions or comments to +254 712 193572 or +254 731 050607
GOD BLESS BUNGE LA MWANANCHI
