  1. Kariara: The election is not a two-horse race, elections are for Kenyans. Voters should ask themselves if their living standards in terms of health, economy, corruption have improved or deteriorated. If you are tired of status quo, and want change, vote for our candidate, Dr Kavinga. We are ready for duty.
  2. Kariara: On corruption, the country loses about a third of its income to corruption. Corrupt individuals should be dealt with on the spot. My presidential candidate and I have no affiliation to any cartels. Kenyans have an opportunity to have their voices heard on August 8 by electing new leaders of integrity. Kenyans to regret tainted leaders. Jubilee government is tainted, I appeal to you to vote them out and vote for Mr Kavinga. Leaders of integrity will have a duty to pass legislation that will fight corruption, such as attaching their assets.
  3. Kariara: I tarmacked for a year looking for a job after graduating and I had to start farming to meet my expenses. I started pig farming. I did not have capital and got garbage for restaurants. I got someone to rent me space to put up a structure for pig sty. I got someone to give me piglets. I ask youth to see agriculture as outdated. There is modern technology for farming. We will deploy to the ground extension services to help them.
  4. Kariara: We plan to create jobs that youth want. By this we mean not having one line of jobs such as NYS, but give them jobs that they do with passion such as online jobs or accountancy.
  5. Kariara: On education, we plan to start mentorship program involving Kenyans in diaspora. We are committed to starting a conducive environment for businesses to thrive to create jobs. Youth in Kenya are treated like a problem that need to be solved and not as a resource that need to be harnessed. We will establish community resource centres to be run by fresh graduates. We will allocate Sh10 billion for these resource centres.
  6. Kariara: We will abolish VAT
    Kariara: If we win, we will limit borrowing. Before we go out to borrow, we will improve tax collection. In our six-point plan, we will reduce taxes. We will have an integrated database to have records of all working Kenyans so that we can be able to get taxes. We will abolish VAT.
  7. Kariara: Capping of interest-- Kenyan banks used to make abnormal profits from high interest rates. The profits they are making now are acceptable. They have made rules of borrowing difficult and government has helped them by borrowing from local financial markets. My Idea would be if we take power, we will look into how we will change capping to give banks room to play between low rate and upper limit and have tough rules to prevent exploitation. We will tax money that lie idle, that is, if banks hold money without lending, we will have rules that make it expensive for banks to hold onto money that should have been lent out.
  8. Kariara: Mr Kavinga went to the US, where he studied and worked at Wall Street and foreign governments. He is bringing that experience and knowledge he has from abroad home. As his running mate, I have been brought up in Kenya. He is ready for duty.
  9. Kariara: It is not bad for Kenyans to live in diaspora, which is one of the biggest income earner for Kenya.
  10. Mr Kariara says the current government has done good but not the best that Kenya deserves. The office of Deputy President has been blamed for "alot of things". If we win, we will not make it about power for leaders but for the people.
  11. Mr Kariara says most Kenyans shy away from contesting for positions that matter and that have ultimate responsibility. He says Deputy President should be a symbol of national unity and able to step in, if the President is not able to discharge his duties.
  12. Mr Kariara says he has managed a football team and is a banker. He is the running mate to Japhet Kavinga Kaluyu (below).
