Uhuru signs four bills into law

25 December 2014, 17:50 William Korir and PSCU

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has signed into law four Bills.

The Bills are the Physiotherapists Bill No. 25 of 2013, the Persons Deprived of Liberty Bill No. 30 of 2014, the Kenya Qualifications Framework Bill No. 29 of 2014 and the Law Society of Kenya Bill No. 25 of 2013. 

The Persons Deprived of Liberty Act gives effect to articles 29(f) and 51 of the Constitution. It also outlines the rights of persons deprived of liberty and duties of persons in charge.

The law also establishes a consultative committee on persons deprived of liberty to resolve matters affecting them. 

The Law Society of Kenya Act provides for the objects and conduct of the affairs of the society.

It also establishes the Advocates Client Compensation Fund.

The Physiotherapists Act provides for the training, registration and licensing of Physiotherapists and will regulate their practice through the Physiotherapy Council of Kenya.

The Kenya Qualifications Framework Act provides for the establishment of standards for recognizing qualifications obtained in and outside the country.

The Bills passed on diverse dates in December, in accordance with the provisions of article 109 of the Constitution, were presented for Presidential assent by National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi.

The Bills have passed through in less than controversial fashion, considering the manner in which the Security Bill 2014 was passed last week.
