KEEP YOUR COMENTS COMING-YOUR SAY FROM THE DIASPORA ON THE DRAFT CONSTITUTION.

20 Nov


I think this is a very good draft. The powers of the state president have been well outlined, the parliament now has a security of tenure, the senate which will represent all regions of the nation and oh my God, a cabinet of not less than 15 and not more than 20. Plus dual citizenship and equal gender representation in parliament. Thats a definate Yes from me. If you do not have a copy get one from the link below; http://www.nation.co.ke/blob/view/-/687282/data/113624/-/tvxtiqz/-/draft.pdf

ANOTHER COMMENT.
Although the issue of dual citizenship has been given some prominence, We in the diaspora would also like to actively participate in this debate. We feel that our views should also be collated as we represent a very important constituency which should not only be appreciated when it serves as a cash cow. In fact, I personally feel that we should have, as a special interest group, an MP representing Kenyans living outside the country. Muriithi in Atlanta.

    CoE draft is like good-looking orange juice in a glass laced with a lethal poison. It was tailored with ODM/PNU and Kibaki/Raila in mind. The draft is what ODM and Raila have been pushing – denying Kenyans right to elect their CEO and attaining power thro back door. Two centres of power’ll plunge Kenya into extinction due to power struggle btn PM and president. If Kenyans rejected an imperial president, why hand a PM elected by MPs same powers? A presidential system with strong checks by parliament and judiciary better. Kenyans, don’t commit suicide. Kenya’s CEO must get voters mandate. This constitution is not all about elections.Why are these leaders insisting on talking more on powers instead of our RIGHTS? please do not listen to them read the draft and understand it.

    Please Kenyans – let us rally behind this constitution. There will be no constitution that will satisfy all of us 100%. This document is well balanced.

    .Am a Kenyan living in Kenya and am worried about how much money will be used on this thing. Having in mind how many Kenyans go without food,shelter and other basic needs everyday. My worry is -As the draft goes public, did the CoE of experts involve economists to determine costs to the new national and regional govts?Am scared since once its out shall have no funds as we tax-payers might continue enriching the Mps,New Sanators,Governors etc beside the Big4s!They should propose even the new expenditures.

    I like the Draft. But not in it’s entirety. I understand why the Kadhi Courts should be entrenched in the constitution if Kenya has no state religion. shouldn’t all the religions be treated equal?
