New constituencies - much ado about nothing?

Kenya has at present 210 constituencies, which number is the maximum legal limit. The government has in recent weeks sought to increase that number of seats.

How can a balance be struck, and is the problem the government's unilateral approach or is the opposition making a fuss over nothing? The Constitution does after all demand constituency revisions every 10 years.

What do you think?
