SURA NI YA KAZI

FOREWORD

TO THE PEOPLE OF PUMWANI In seeking to be your representative to the County Assembly, I, Okumba Okumba, am asking you to walk a journey of boldness and courage into a new beginning and a bright future. Like most of you, I am Pumwani. I was born here, raised here and I look forward to the day that I raise my family here. 

I have seen what you have seen and heard as you have heard countless years before. But this time, I chose different, I chose to be bold and to be courageous. I chose to volunteer myself to be the voice and face of change in Pumwani. I believe it can be done, I believe the story can be different in one term of transformative leadership

It is a popular activity with numerous hiking I am confident that come the day of the ballot, we will all realise our voice and the power it holds. I look forward to serving you.

MY PERSONAL PROFILE "I want to honor the dreams and aspirations of the people of Pumwani because they are also my dreams." My name is Okumba Okumba and I am Pumwani. I was born and raised in Pumwani, and even got my nickname (Zeddy) from there. I attended Eastleigh High School for my O levels where I picked up an interest in events and entertainment (or funkies as they are known in high school).  After high school, I got an opportunity to work in the entertainment industry as part of Teenwise Media Limited (publishers of The Insyder Magazine). I served in the capacity of Circulation and Events Manager from 2014 to 2017. I have a passion for writing and also a Christian who believes in living out our God-given purpose. I believe that leadership is sacred. I want to honor the dreams and aspirations of the people of Pumwani because those are also my dreams. I will do what I can when the people of Pumwani put their faith and trust in me.


"To transform Pumwani Ward into

OKUMBA OKUMBA

a vibrant and united ward with

VISION

equal opportunities and good quality of life for every resident."

"To give Pumwani a facelift physically, socially,

OKUMBA OKUMBA

MISSION

economically, and in governance." OKUMBA OKUMBA

MY ROLE AS YOUR MCA

"As MCA, my duties will include legislation, oversight and representation to the county assembly. I will ensure that I am in touch with you, the people, regularly so that I ably respond to issues that affect our lives on a daily basis and represent you aptly."


SURA NI YA KAZI

HOUSING

EDUCATION

HEALTH

MY AGENDA SECURITY

WATER & SANITATION

LIVELIHOODS


Proper and decent housing restores dignity. I will ensure improved living standards for all of us through access to affordable but decent housing within the ward. House card holders will be given priority in the ownership of the forthcoming upgrading initiatives.

HOUSING

I believe that proper education is a key to life's overflow of opportunities. I will ensure that our children have access to an improved Early Childhood Development program. I will also ensure that the provision of school bursaries go to those who are from deserving backgrounds. I will also lead the efforts to revive adult literacy programmes in the ward to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to learn how to read and write.Â

EDUCATION

Proper healthcare is entrenched in our Country's constitution. As such, I will champion and ensure that all of us have access to quality essential health. I will also introduce awareness programmes for health services and a directory of health services and service providers in the ward.Â

HEALTH SURA NI YA KAZI


SECURITY

I want to make Pumwani a ward we all want to live in. A ward where children are free to be children because they are safe. A ward where you are not looking over your shoulder after work and businesses close at convenient times because they are assured that it is safe. I will work with law enforcement to ensure that security is a basic freedom we all enjoy.

Water is life, and nobody should have to be denied access to water. I commit to ensuring we have a reliable water supply that are no longer managed by cartels. I will also ensure provision of clean metered and safe drinking water to the households within the Ward.Â

WATER & SANITATION

LIVELIHOODS

I believe that everyone deserves a chance at proper and decent work. I will work with local organisations to increase the capacity of young people to have meaningful work. In addition, I will partner with other organisations to have capacity building forums for business, sports and arts. I believe that these partnerships will provide opportunities to harness the talents of our young people and women for economic empowerment and improved quality of life. SURA NI YA KAZI


SURA NI YA KAZI

MY COMMITMENT

People of Pumwani, I appeal for your support to grant me the honour of serving you as your MCA. I commit to follow through on my six agenda items to give us all a better community and ward. I want us to be proud when we wake up, go about our daily businesses and come back home, because we know that Pumwani is where we belong. I am fully committed to the promotion of welfare, freedom and prosperity for all who live in Pumwani. I ask you to hold me to account for the things that I have stated in this manifesto. This way we will build each other and work together for the greater good of our community.  It will not be an overnight achievement nor will it be easy, but several years from now, you will be glad that your sweat, tears and prayers went into the rebuilding of Pumwani. It will take work, and that is why I ask you to join me, to roll up your sleeves and put on "Sura ya Kazi" and let's rebuild our home. On August 8th, you get to decide who will be your next MCA. The Pumwani MCA needs to be someone who believes in Pumwani, in change and in change in and for Pumwani. I am your choice because I am Pumwani.

Leadership is "ACTION", not "POSITION"
