1. Create a presidency that revolves around tribes so that each tribe is constitutionally mandated to produce a president. A tribe that has produced a President will constitutionally be required to stay in line until each tribe has tasted presidency.
2. Presidential term limit should be reduced from two terms of 5 years each to one term of 4 years.
3. Politicians should be required by law to run for office in a constituency that is outside of their own tribe. Take M.P’s Moses Kuria and Otiende Amolo. The former would run for office in Siaya and the latter in Kiambu. Same would apply to MCA, Women Rep, Senators and governors.
4. The percentage of funds disbursed by the national government to county governments be significantly increased from the current inconsequential percentage to 50%.
5. Each and every administration should have zero tolerance to corruption and afford equal opportunity to all regardless of one’s tribe.
6. Each and every administration must be required by law to include officials from ALL tribes of Kenya.
7. Intermarriages between tribes should be strongly ENCOURAGED with incentives given to those who marry outside of their tribe.
8. Regular cultural exchanges between tribes should be highly encouraged with government sponsorship given to sustain the program. This will ensure people from different tribes are afforded opportunity to socialize and diffuse unnecessary tribal tensions.
9. In order to graduate from high school, students must be required to attain a semester of inter-tribal experiences by volunteering for a community service outside of their own tribe.
10. Finally, a national conference comprising of people-centered delegates from every tribe in Kenya be convened to discuss how we can demystify tribe-centric country by amplifying nation-centric country. Perhaps this conference can define and affirm national values that will bind us together as one people so as we can attain a new nationalistic identity.
