Intergovernmental conflicts blamed for slow constitution implementation

27 November 2014, 14:02 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Implementation of the constitution has experienced challenges arising from conflicts between various organs of the government, Commission for Implementation of the constitution (CIC) chairperson Charles Nyachae has said.

Nyachae said some differences between the two houses of the Parliament (the Senate and National Assembly) and that between the Legislature and Judiciary among other state departments have posed challenges to the smooth implementation of the constitution.

Speaking during the launching of 2013-2014 CIC annual report, Nyachae said some conflicts witnessed between ministries and commissions have negatively impacted on service delivery by state bodies.

He said all government leaders elected and appointed should uphold the constitution and defend it all the time, as this would create conducive environment for the fully implementation of the law.

“Every Kenyan is supposed to respect and follow the constitution so as to allow better governance in the country. As CIC, we have been working to ensure the law is fully implemented within the time frame of five years,” said the chairperson.

He further said majority of Kenyans were yet to understand the provisions of the constitution due to limited civic education saying this has made it difficult for the people to identify violations and defend the constitution.

Nyachae called on the national and County governments to develop and implement a comprehensive civic education and capacity building for all citizens.

The commission, he said, has been left with only one year to ensure the law is implemented.

On the proposed referendum, the chairperson said Kenyans had the right to change the law but observed that as CIC, it was not right to advocate for a referendum as the law had not been fully implemented.

“We want to ask our friends who are agitating to change the constitution to wait for the remaining one year to see which areas still needs changes,” he noted.
