Mwangi Wa Iria says he will enact “one home one cow” initiative if elected president
Murang'a governor Mwangi Wa Iria has said he will enact his one home one cow initiative if elected president in the upcoming polls slated for August this year.
Mwangi, who was addressing the press this morning, said that his initiative was better than 'Bottom-Up Economy' which is associated with Deputy President William Ruto and the Ksh 6,000 monthly stipend being proposed by Raila Odinga.
"I will enact the one home, one cow initiative into law if Kenyans elect me as their next president so that my supporters in the rural areas can own a cow," Wa Iria said.
Mwangi also assured Kenyans that every citizen in the country will be given a cow as long as he or she is a farmer.
"Some have been saying they will give out Ksh 6000 for the unemployed Kenyans, however, if elected, my government will give each and every farmer in the country a cow, one home one cow," Mwangi Wa Iria said.
According to the county chief, the cows he will give out if elected should produce 10 litres daily hence every household receive Ksh 400 daily and Ksh 12000 monthly.
The outgoing governor took the opportunity to reiterate that he shall be in the presidential race and will not back down.
He held that Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto are no better than him, saying that he is confident he will beat them hands down in the polls.
He also slammed those who have been claiming that the presidential contest is a two-horse race, saying this is demeaning to other candidates.
Wa Iria said he is largely banking on votes from the region to clinch the top job.
