Musalia Mudavadi Mission And Vision
A Dignified Life
Every Kenyan has a right to live a dignified life.
This is a life in which citizens of all classes enjoy social, economic and political stability and live in a powerful nation state with strong shared core values and principles; where each one is free from all forms of poverty and deprivation.
By living a dignified life Kenyans of all walks of life will be able to uphold the rule of law and respect freedoms and liberties enshrined in our newly enacted constitution. They will consciously resist the culture of influence peddling and replace it with servant leadership.
I seek to rid our country and our people the indignities that go with widespread poverty and therefore subjecting the majority of Kenyans to the inability to voice and demand for their fair share.
I have a mission to anchor Kenya on a collective partnership aimed at nurturing and enhancing the human dignity of Kenyans based on collective action guided by the rule of law and supported by a sense of equitable sharing of our national resources.
The well being of Kenyans informs my decisions. It is my conviction that every Kenyan has a right to a dignified life and I believe given the mandate to lead this country Kenyans shall indeed enjoy a Dignified Life!
