"We shall take action depending on the findings. It can be overhauled or replaced with a suitable system," the manifesto reads.
The coalition has also promised to restore Kenya’s place by providing progressive leadership in international matters, especially in the East African Community and the African Continent.
“We want a nation with the right mindset. NASA will pursue a foreign policy that mirrors our domestic values that adhere to the principles of democracy and rule of law and human rights norms,” the manifesto reads.
The document says that in the wake of globalisation, the architecture of international relations has expanded to include a critical role of non-sate actors and civil society in particular.
“We shall buy goods and services at the lowest price offered by the vendor to any customer. Any officer who procures at above the lowest price will be surcharged for the difference and the suppliers who charge the government more than other customers will be blacklisted."
The National Super Alliance has accused the government of too much borrowing leading to economic ruin.
“After five years of financial recklessness, our public finances are precarious. The Jubilee regime has doubled our public debt while the foreign debt has increased two-fold, from Sh880 billion in 2013 to Sh1.8 trillion in 2017, a growth of 115 per cent."
The Opposition further says the cost of servicing has increased by 220 per cent from Sh34 billion to 108 billion.
