About

This blog dubbed “Constitution Crossroads” is one way of giving Kenyans a chance to freely air their views on the proposed draft constitution. Having in mind that our parliament adopted the draft constitution without making any amendments sighting that the constitution had to be passed since that was  part of reforms agreed in 2008 by politicians to end post-election violence, paving the way for it to go to a referendum.

Whatever you feel about the constitution just blog it-This blog is for you all.

  1. It is interesting to note that for Parliament to amend any clause in the PDC they required two thirds but to pass a the whole doc only a simple majority.

  2. It is good for the church to object to the proposed costitution on the grounds of the kadhi courts and abortion. However, the church and indeed all religions are not comparing section 78 of the current constitution, ‘Protection of freedom of conscience’and section 32 of the proposed constitution, ‘Freedom of conscience, religion, belief and opinion’.  Many rights granted by the current constitution are not granted by the proposed constitution, including freedom to propagate ones religion. How does a christian fulfill the great commission without the freedom to propagate his/her religion? And other religions would also need to propagate their religions, that is get new converts. The proposed constitution is also quiet on freedom to establish and maintain places of  education  and right to observe and practise a religion without the unsolicited intervention of members of another religion.

  3. This constitution can not be ignored and allowed to be passed by the defects as both kenyans are affected by the same document.in my opinion i feel that the issues which are desputed upon should be dealt with first so that when the the document is clear and satisfying we can all pass it,as no ammendments will be needed later which consumes time and resources.

  4. If passed this constitution will not just but revolutionize the lives of Kenyans—especially the ordinary Kenhyan.

    As a committed Christian, this is the most PRO-LIFE constitution I have ever come across. By stating clearly and expressly that life begins at conception and that every person has the right to a quality and dignified life–free from any form of discrimination–plus stipulating that all have right to very basic needs of education, food and health–this is a GOD inspired document and all of us need to support it instead of blindly condemning it.

  5. I reaffirm your stand on the proposed draft because it captures the interests of kenyans ,expansion of fundamental rights and freedoms ,as well creating a just and equitable society essential for prosperity and development.

  6. I love your site for informing a lot of people, it’s just sometimes people seem to get themselves tied up in unnecessary pitfalls over something that’s very simple .

  7. Thanks for sharing explanations and writing this article. Looking forward to more of your stuff. Hopefully you continually update your Blog often since you have found a loyal visitor .

  8. Lets us all support this draft constitution without listening to our church and political leaders because we have waited for it for many years and its going to bring about many changes to all Kenyans.

    God bless Kenya.
