In the 1990’s they initiated the struggle for a new Constitution but now, they are seen by some as staling the very process.Christians are however adamant they would rather reject an otherwise good document because of two clauses – that on abortion and the Kadhi courts.The various church leaders are unanimous in hailing the two-decade process but say the two clauses amount to injustice.
The call for prohibition of abortion isn’t only Christian. The general public wants the unborn protected. But even though the majority of Kenyans have spoken we see the experts choosing to side with the views of the minority who have neither numbers nor genuine national interest at heart. Lets just say that some of the Experts are sympathizers with the civil society who are pro-abortionist or they (experts) simply don’t care.
The reason why this document is in Parliament for 30 days discussions is so that it can be improved. It is an act of recklessness for officials to put pending matters they can deal with now to a future date which is not known. when the opportunity is there do deal with them. The reason why Christians will not allow it to go with flaws is because the things they are asking for are not outrageous or complicated. They are doable and fundamental.
So what is your take on these two sensitive clauses?
