This includes increasing devolved resources and advancing a “One County, One Product” programme.
Devolution has the potential of transforming each county through the exploitation of their respective resources for both domestic and external markets.
“One County, One Product” is premised on manufacturing and value addition as the engine for wealth creation and employment to achieve double digit economic growth rate. The National Government will provide material and technical support to each county government for vibrant industrialization. To foster growth of manufacturing, the AZIMIO commitment. will be to undertake specific measures to improve the investment climate.

Manufacturing as the driver of economic revolution is envisaged to spur growth of all sectors of the economy resulting in employment and wealth creation. MSMEs including the JuaKali sector are also leading generators of employment. We will adopt a policy of Recognition of Prior Learning certification program to award certificates to artisans, craftsmen and technicians who have obtained skills and knowledge through apprenticeship and work experience to enhance their employment opportunities, by empowering their efforts - “Shahada la Jitihada”. We will also encourage the signing of MOUs between Jua Kali Associations and TVETs to develop partnerships and incubation hubs.
The AZIMIO commitment is to support the growth of MSMEs, including the JuaKali sector through improved productivity and efficiency to spearhead the ‘Made in Kenya’ products. Kazi kwa wote will secure the welfare of the people through decent and dignified jobs that uplift their standards of living.

Women constitute more than half of the country’s population. Their potential contribution to the economy is therefore enormous. Gender equality and empowerment have received increased attention in recent years. Despite a progressive Constitution that promotes gender equality and women’s empowerment, gender equality remains elusive.
Azimio la Kina Mama will focus on the true multipliers of wealth in our community- our women. The programme will unlock access to financing for women-led businesses and provide support for women on other enabling factors such as access to assets for production, land tenure and proportional representation at all levels of government. Address the plight of widows and single mothers through financial literacy programs, reduction in the cost of healthcare and education and offering support services to help cushion them from the hardships of their losses.
Interventions will include: Progressively aiming for gender parity in appointments, and at the very least adhering to the ‘two-third gender’ rule. Appointing women to Improving access to government guaranteed funds and affordable credit to women. Enforce the ‘not more than one third gender rule’ in elective or appointive bodies as provided for in the Constitution with the view to achieving gender parity. Enhance capacity of young women in entrepreneurship, credit management, financial management, digital skills, mentorship, marketing and record keeping. Increase the uptake of TVET by young women in informal settlements and rural areas. Facilitate local manufacture of sanitary towels for school going girls and ensure that every public school is provided with sanitary towels. Establish incubation centers for businesses targeting women in rural areas.

The ultimate objective is to generate agricultural bounty to feed the people of Kenya - the Fukuza Njaa agenda. The AZIMIO commitment is to create an enabling environment for climate-smart agriculture, agro- processing, improved livestock farming and growth of the blue economy. In undertaking this, the AZIMIO government will factor in climate change adaptation and mitigation to support and help realise high agricultural productivity across the nation. We will commercialize large scale arable but idle government land into productive agricultural enterprise. INAWEZEKANA AGENDA 2022 - 2027

Manufacturing is at the heart of the economic revolution which is a key pillar of the Inawezekana Agenda. Manufacturing complemented by agriculture, livestock, the blue economy, and ICT as the key engines for the envisaged economic revolution and the apparatus for development. These sectors shall jump-start and turnaround the economy.
Global manufacturing technologies are fast changing. This provides an opportunity to invest in emerging technologies which will provide employment opportunities to Kenya’s young population, such as micro-chips which are already manufactured in Kenya.
The manufacturing sector shall produce input materials like steel, copper, and glass for further processing into finished products, and secondary production of goods like engineering manufacturing machinery, transport and agricultural machinery, tools and implements to be applied in the mechanization and automation of agriculture, livestock, blue economy, mining and processing.
Manufacturing shall also be the focal point for achieving efficiency and increased productivity by MSMEs, as well as the creative and sports industries. Likewise, manufacturing will be a user of MSME products.

Azimio la Wananchi recognizes that whichever administration comes into power, the people remain sovereign and the government is theirs, and there should therefore be continuity and minimal disruption even as priorities are reviewed.
The instruments of power do not change, only the custodians come and go. Similarly, public investments initiated on behalf of a sovereign people, should not be abandoned at the feet of the ambition of custodians of power. As stewards on behalf of the people, our duty is to highlight our priorities and our agenda, and align it with the gains already secured by previous administrations on behalf of the people.
Starting afresh with every new administration is an exercise in profligacy, whereas public finance management demands optimal resource allocation.
The Azimio Commitment is that transfer of power will be seamless and the country should not loose momentum as the Azimio Administration aligns its priorities with the Business of Government which is the Business of the People.

Custodians of power must be accountable for the mandate bestowed upon them by the electorate. The cornerstones of this agenda encompass battling corruption, and ensuring efficiency and optimality in Public Service Delivery.
Essentially it is about Good Governance. This will help ensure that all the gains of the economic revolution are secured, and that the environment is even more conducive for productivity and investments. Corruption and inefficent public service delivery and finance management undermine development and the ability of government to provide services to its citizens.
This happens when opportunities and resources meant for public services are diverted from the intended use, there is inducement for service, and abuse of office, amongst other vices. The fight against corruption is an integral part of leadership ethos and principles of governance

Education is non-negotiable. The AZIMIO programme will be an aggressive scheme to ensure that all, not some of our children, get rightful access to quality education. We will deploy motivated teachers to deliver quality education that prepares our children to succeed in a modern global world. No child shall be left behind. We commit employ all qualified teachers who are currently unemployed.
This programme shall also deploy an affirmative action initiative dubbed, the Baba Kubadili Plan, for marginalized areas especially Northern Kenya.
A multi-agency body will spearhead the process to ensure no young Kenyan is locked out of the education system.

Baba Care primarily focuses on social protection and transformation, and secondly upscaling Universal Health Coverage to Universal health Care. All citizens should enjoy the right to Accessible, Quality, and Affordable Healthcare.
As regards social protection and transformation: A nation’s greatness is judged by how it treats its most vulnerable in society. Inua Jamii is a social protection programme that will deliver Kenya Shillings Six Thousand (Ksh6,000/=) per month to each of the two million most needy and vulnerable households. Not as a handout, but as an investment and a foundation for a new transformational value- chain that will also trigger economic activity and create thousands of localized small-scale businesses and enterprises across the country. This will lead to millions of jobs and the eventual development of a thriving middle class.

The Azimio commitment is to make clean and safe water available to all Kenyans. It will implement the Maji Kwa Kila Boma programme to radically reverse the shortages and high cost of water and ensure access by all, particularly for the poor. We shall not allow water scarcity to be an issue in our country where lakes and rivers burst their banks, yet desert nations have found ways to direct every drop to its people for consumption and production.
