Kenya Constitution article, 1 reads “(1) All sovereign power belongs to the people of Kenya and shall be exercised only in accordance with this Constitution. (2) The people may exercise their sovereign power either directly or through their democratically elected representatives.” Bishop Donald Mwawasi is looking to get the responsibility to exercise the sovereign power given by the people to a democratically elected leader. He is looking to be the representative of the people of Taita Taveta in the Senate.

When leaders exercise the Sovereign power given by the people the right way people’s lives can change as new solutions become legislated bills. Bishop Mwawasi, who has lived in the Diaspora, knows firsthand how the U.S constitution has worked for the people. In the past 5 years, he has worked hard to see the new Kenya constitution 2010 works for the people of Kenya and has won a case in the Court of Appeals on Constitution interpretation. 

In 2015, after about one year of work he had an Institution Town Plan passed at Taita Taveta under Kenya Constitution article 185 (4) that reads “A county assembly may receive and approve plans and policies for— (a) the management and exploitation of the county’s resources; and (b) the development and management of its infrastructure and institutions.” 

The Institution Town Plan is today progressing to the implementation stage. In the next 5 years the plan shall create 20,000 new jobs in Taita Taveta. In the Senate, Bishop Mwawasi looks forward to sponsoring bills that will lead to Diaspora resources and County resources used to advance more job creation.  

Using grass roots campaign, similar to what is done in New Hampshire, is today an ongoing conversation on leadership and representation of people. Bishop Mwawasi is gradually empowering citizens to think outside the box so they can use their sovereign power to create new jobs and a better way of life for themselves.
