The new Brighton Mayor, Ms Valerie Johnson encouraged all Kenyans to be at the forefront to ensure that whoever they elect will represent the will and majority of Kenyans.
Ms. Valerie Johnson has done a few humanitarian projects in East and Central Africa and also understands the plight of many Kenyans who live below a Dollar per day. She speaks eloquently on what she saw on the ground on the various trips she has made to Africa and passionately urges all Kenyans to unite and choose leaders based on performance but not through bribery, fraud and ethnic orientations.
She thanks Kenyans for loving their Country by supporting democratic ideals to ensure that whoever they elect will represent the will of the people.
She went ahead to challenge Kenyans to learn from the American democratic institutions which are people focused and the trappings of power and resources is felt in every State, County and at the local cities which are primarily driven by the people’s will. An example is access to clean water by residents which she says should be a cardinal role for the people in power to ensure all residents of a County must get because it’s the core for supporting lives.
Good leadership should entail people wishes not the other way round and most successful economies rely on the mantra of good governance to attract investment and ensuring that every citizen can live without fear or intimidation because every leader is accountable to the electorate.
Mayor Valerie has been very instrumental in organizing funds drive to sink bore holes and other water projects in East and Central Africa, for example water projects in Keumbu and Birongo areas in Kisii County commonly known as Water for Life initiative which has enabled residents in that area to get clean water.
