Nairobi, 30 August, 2022 / 9:25 pm (ACI Africa).
Members of the Kenya Christian Professionals Forum (KCPF) are calling upon the political leaders elected following Kenya’s general elections to adhere to the country’s constitution and the rule of law.
In a statement issued following the 12th anniversary of the promulgation of the Constitution of Kenya 2010, KCPF members say many problems in the East African nation rise from the disregard of the rule of law, “which has increased impunity, corruption, resistance to accountability and lack of transparency in the quest to serve Kenyans under our constitutional dispensation.”
Kenya has been marking Katiba (Constitution) Day every August 27 since 2010 when the nation’s new Constitution was promulgated.
“We note that this year's Katiba Day comes 18 Days after the general elections. This is an opportune time to remind the incoming regime that we expect a government that will maintain fidelity to the Constitution and the rule of law,” KCPF members say in a statement signed by their chairman, Charles Kanjama.
The representatives of Christian workers in Kenya add that the new government needs to pay attention to “the pain, aspirations and dreams the Kenyan society had when it promulgated the Constitution of Kenya 2010.”
