Curate's Egg: Assessment of Kenya's Proposed Constitution

As everyone seems to be saying, the “approval” by the National Assembly (NA) of the Proposed Constitution (PC) was historic, and MPs are being profusely thanked. Except that we had another historic day in March 2004 when Bomas adopted a constitution, and that the NA had no authority to approve the PC. It is amazing that only one member realised this, even though the NA itself had made this rule when enacting section 47A of the Constitution. So much for constitutions!

A snap shot that you really MUST read.
