Mr. Abdi discusses his vision further, for Mandera East, on his website.
Kenyans continue to be disenfranchised as an electorate, and it is Mr. Nyambane’s hope to change this. He is keen on fostering relationships with other communities around his constituency while uniting those within his. His main focus if elected will be on rural electrification, abandoned children, tea export and women empowerment.
There is still a stigma attached to children with special needs, both mental and physical disabilities. Mr. Nyambane would like to sensitize his constitution and educate them on catering to the needs of these children. CDF, he contends, is one of the best things to happen to the people of Kenya. He will create a grassroots committee that will prioritize the needs of the constituency allowing the citizens an opportunity to have a say in their local government.
"Kenya is a subsistence economy relying heavily on farming. However, the farmers do not get adequately accommodated for their goods. I will educate the farmers on market prices, and cut out the middle man to increase the gains the farmer makes."
On farming, Mr. Nyambane will also work with the Ministry of Transport to ensure that the infrastructure will support transport between trading ports.
He will be running on a Kenya African National Union ticket.
