    2. Judicial independence

    The NASA leader noted that the judicial system that annulled the August election had been compromised when ruling on the repeat election results.

    "The Supreme Court has been threatened by Uhuru and Ruto which is why we will be pushing for an independent court," he conveyed.

    3. A Proper Police Service

    He advocated for a proper police force adding that it had killed over 300 people after the August elections.

    "We want to transform the police from a force to a service. The police force is not one determined to serve but victimizes the people.

    "We shall see if we can dismiss them all or create a new force," the Former Prime Minister added.

    4. Restructuring and strengthening Devolution

    "We want a devolved unit that has enough capacity to make itself sustainable," he explained.

    5. Restructuring of Executive

    He called for reducing dependency on the national government while urging for deconcentration of power in the Presidency.
