, NAIROBI, Kenya Nov 16 – The National Alliance will this weekend hold its final county forum in Nairobi.
TNA has in the last week been conducting a series of county forums across the country where it has been collecting feedback on its draft policy papers which will form the basis for the party manifesto.
“After conducting a series of county forums across the country, The National Alliance (TNA) will be having a Nairobi County Forum, this Saturday, at Ufungamano House at 9am,” read a statement from the party.
The party manifesto is due to be released on January 29.
“The National Alliance, whose mission is to transform Kenya socially, politically and economically wants to involve you in its policy making process. As we write our blueprint for a new Kenya, we want you to be involved. What do you want your next government to do for you? What are the priority areas that need to be addressed by the governor and leaders in your county? What would you like to see change in the education sector? agriculture, security, trade and industry?” Party chairman Johnson Sakaja said during the launch of exercise two weeks ago.
Speaking during the same event, TNA’s Secretary General Onyango Oloo explained that when TNA succeeds to form the government come March 5 next year, it will be able to implement programmes and projects emanating from the people and not merely coming from the leadership.
He further added that the forums are also geared towards introducing its programme known as ‘My DNA is TNA’ which includes roping in all the youths in the Kenya with an agenda of popularising the party and enhance sharing of ideas.
The county forum has also seen the election of interim office bearers, where each of the constituency allocated two vacancies to form the interim office to oversee recruitment of party members.
Among those expected at the forum are sitting MPs and councillors as well as aspirants for different seats in the city.
There are 16 constituencies in Nairobi according to the new electoral boundaries gazetted by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.
The race for Nairobi governor on TNA ticket has attracted interest from Jimnah Mbaru, Ferdinand Waititu and Timothy Muriuki while Mike Sonko and Beth Mugo will contest for TNA’s senate ticket.
Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta unveiled the party in May this year as the vehicle he will use in his quest to be the President of Republic of Kenya.
