She added what Kenya needs is to re-focus and rebuilding like it happened in 2002.

"Both the DP and my President must be headed home and I'm not saying because I'm in Azimio. I'm saying that so that we refocus this country, we zero it back to 2002 and start a journey with it," she said.

Elachi who is vying for the Dagoretti North parliamentary seat added it is an individual responsibility to ensure that focused leaders are elected in the August 9, general election.

"Proper enforcement of law will guide those elected in office for the benefit of the nation," she added.
