He called upon the Azimio Presidential candidate Raila Odinga to stop blaming IEBC over what he termed as preparing to rig elections in favor of him calling upon him to instead face him on the ballot and not meddle in the affairs of an independent body as he was not equal to the task that the Commission is destined to offer credible elections to the electorates of this nation.

He promised to de-gazette the Kitalale land forest and give title deeds to locals residing in the area immediately he assumes office, promising residents that no one will chase them in the area as several of them have no title deeds.

The Kitalale farm is a government land whose theĀ  KANU government offered to Saboat communities in the area and up to date the land has not been de-gazetted, a call leaders from the region have been calling upon leaders and government to help de-gazette the land and offer them title deeds for them to continue staying peacefully.
