Former Sonu leader Babu Owino has vowed to use his salary to help the needy should he become the member of parliament for Embakasi East.
The ODM aspirant added he is ready to transform leadership by youths if he wins the seat after the election next Tuesday.
“I have grown up and known what lack means. I, therefore, made a pledge to my people that what I will earn will go directly to them to help meet the needs of the underprivileged such as orphans,” he said during an interview on Kiss FM on Thursday.
He said half of his salary will be used for bursaries.
Babu also plans to establish five water distribution points, one per ward, and a monthly cleaning exercise.
“People in the semi-urban and slum areas lack basic amenities such as water. We will help address and have monthly cleaning exercises to avoid diseases like cholera.”
Babu will face off with seven other candidates who are Jubilee’s Francis Mureithi, Francis Masinde, George Butto, Boniface Nyagaka, Joash Omwenga, Phillip Bosire, and Nyamasi Lukas Baridi.
