Civil society faults constitutional reform process

27 August 2013, 13:36 Robert Chepkwony

As Kenya celebrates three years after promulgation of the new constitution, a group of civil societies from Nakuru County have faulted the implementation of the said document that was voted for by a large percentage of Kenyans.

The CSOs comprising of the Centre for Democracy and Good Governance (CEDGG), the Nakuru County Human Rights Network (NAHURINET) and the Unga Revolution Nakuru chapter, held a peaceful demonstration that started from the Nakuru Railway grounds before addressing an open forum at the Lions Garden, and proceeded to the Anglican Church where they held talks.

CEDGG’S programmes officer Paul Masese, claims that despite Kenyans voting for the constitution, nothing much has been done towards the implementation.

He accused the recent calls for amendments of the constitution by politicians, saying that the drive is meant to benefit what he calls the “greedy” politicians.

Masese says the motion in parliament is driven by the MPs so that they (the MPs) are not part of the state officers, in a bid to entangle themselves from the Salaries and Remuneration Commissions (SRC) in order for them to decide their salaries.

At the same time, Masese dismissed calls for the huge bulk of national funds to be distributed to the county governments, saying at the moment there were no projects for the money being demanded, adding that Kenyans might just be blackmailed on the surface by those who are pushing for the issue.
