    Manifestos are quiet on deeply entrenched issues that gnaw on the economy, such as tribalism, a culture of seeking handouts and population growth despite limited resources like land.

    most manifesto will promise utopia. But most of the promises will come to naught, no matter who takes power on August 9In 2013, Jubilee, with much fanfare, unveiled a manifesto that promised a number of things.

    Key among these were five modern stadia, laptops for primary schoolchildren, a million jobs every year for the next five years, a double-digit economic growth rate, food security and cheaper power.

    With the possible exception of cheap and accessible power, the Jubilee administration has failed to deliver on all the other promises.

    Instead of the stadiums, the ministry of sports was rocked by a scandal that humiliated the nation when its officials stole uniforms meant for the athletes and organized joy rides for themselves and their girlfriends to the Rio Games at the expense of the athletes. . Anyone with an average education can write a manifesto, and any average politician can stand in front of a cheering crowd and recite the promises therein.

    Although most are not fulfilled, manifestos remain important yardsticks to see how well a candidate understands and represents our interests as well as for accountability. People are want better representation but right now party politics and campaigns seem to mask the need for change. Manifesto launches seem to be a formality on the checklist to usher in the elections. That’s why most leaders forget about their own manifesto as soon as it is launched.
