Con­sti­tu­tion has an­swers to ques­tions be­ing raised

Daily Nation (Kenya) - - LETTERS -

Drafters of the Con­sti­tu­tion en­vis­aged strong in­sti­tu­tions to safe­guard Kenya’s sovereignty. Chap­ter fif­teen of the Con­sti­tu­tion pro­hibits IEBC’S mem­bers from swap­ping public or of­fi­cial in­ter­est for per­sonal in­ter­est. The Ju­di­ciary, from where IEBC can bor­row a leaf, has de­fined it­self as a foun­tain of jus­tice. Al­though some of these de­ci­sions drew crit­i­cisms, with some peo­ple call­ing for re­moval of the judges, the Ju­di­ciary has re­mained firm. As the mid­wife of the sov­er­eign will of the peo­ple, the thresh­old of IEBC in­de­pen­dence and neu­tral­ity must be even big­ger. M. Obonyo, via email
