Greetings from Michael Nato,a Kenyan Human Rights Defender (HRD) from Haki Kenya Organization,we seek support from well-wishers in terms of resources of any kind to enable our candidature for the position of member of the county assembly (MCA) materialize,I hail from Chaani ward(the ward I wish to represent) from the sprawling informal settlements that has problems ranging from, vulnerability to diseases eg TB,Corona,HIV, Diarrhea,malaria etc, poor water and sanitation systems,waste management problems,drugs,alcoholism,and substance abuse from all age groups eg children,youths and the elderly,land evictions and environmental pollution from insensitive coporates,unempowered PWD,high unemployment and crime rate,poor infrastructure in health, education,roads etc and extreme poverty.
Me and my organization have teamed up with the civil society to fight most of this societal ills,some of the actions we have done are as follows, conduct Civic education on governance issues,organised support to our Ward in terms of food aid, medical assistance,masks,sanitizers, mapping and enumeration,we have highlighted our community's plight through social and mainstream media which attracted support,we have organised demonstrations to protest against landgrabbers and county government incompetence,conducted social audit on both government's projects, engaged in surveys and research to better understand our Ward,we also have active environmental and governance cases in court in defense of our people and I am the main appellant.
My candidature came about because we have experienced a big challenge dealing with insensitive governments,we aspire to take our struggle in the inside, since all problems are political then we seek political solutions for them,the MCA position will make us have the necessary platform and resources to, articulate, solve or mitigate most of our community's problems.
I and my team welcome donations for this worthwhile cause and promise to remit government taxes and account for it as required by our good-hearted donors,we shall link our activities on our social media platforms for scrutiny,as opposed to lamenting about our disabling problems we have decided as a team to take charge of our destiny and be the change that we want."The person with a problem should be the one to seek a solution"Albert Einstein, Nobel prize physics laureate and politician.Thank you and may God bless you tenfold.
