What would you do if you were President for 6 months?

If you were the President of Kenya for 6 months what would you do?

What would you do if you were President for 6 months?

We often complain but offer no alternatives; now, imagine you have all the state machinery & power of the presidency for 6 months – what would you do for Kenyans before your exit?

This is what I would do: –

  1. Polish then implement my draft foreign policy:
    (Read more here: Robert Mũnũku: My Letter to the President)
  2. I would nationalize healthcare. This of course like (1) above would have a concrete policy plan. Among other things, private hospitals will be forced to reduce their rates and pay a higher tax. We’ll (my cabinet) also seriously revamp personnel and services in public hospitals.
  3. Nationalize public transport. If we can borrow money to build roads we can do the same (if need be) to create a government-run public transport system. Think of ‘Nyayo Bus’ minus the corruption & subsequent collapse. This parallel system (as it would be with healthcare) will compete with private-public transport vendors like matatu and taxi services. I would also start a cheaper ‘uber’-type of service ran by government.
  4. Declare unemployment a national disaster. Again, if need be, I would borrow money to have a policy created to put all unemployed Kenyans to work, county by county. Unlike a road, this can pay itself back through statutory deductions that those put to work will remit notwithstanding the fact that they are building the economy by working.
  5. Nationalize land. All land in the country will belong to the government (protected by the constitution). No single citizen can own land but be allowed to lease & produce on it. Likewise, no foreigners can own land but can be allowed to produce on it/use it for commercial services that can build the economy.
  6. Revamp then nationalize the education system (see the same principle in 2 above)
  7. Lobby for a referendum to review the IEBC and subsequently political positions. This will be in order to reduce the superfluous wage bill that goes into our currently over-represented country. Reduce MPs (<200), Senators and MCAs. Abolish the Women’s Rep role and instead lobby for the gender bill which will ensure QUALIFIED women are given a chance to hold office.
  8. Reform the police force.
  9. Reform the prisons system
  10. Revive regional integration and cooperation towards Pan-Africanism

    In a span of 6 months I will make sure the old have retired from their offices so as to pave way for the young people who are capable of the job and with this, the rate of unemployment would reduce .

    Very progressive thoughts. Most of these ideas are good on paper, however, they need approval from parliament and other politicians. Most will be shot down before being passed into law unless you enforce them without approval which makes you a dictator. Now the big question is: are you willing to practice benevolent leadership where your way is tbe right way even if it is good for tbe people but the law requires otherwise? Some of these changes may take decades to be implemented and you only have 10 years at most in office, would you extend your stay as president to fulfill your list or hand over to the next person who may not be as progressive as you? All in all, the resulting county after these are implemented would be a real life utopia and I believe it can be achieved with the right team around you.
