Taking Stock on the Status of Law Reforms - The Star
The 2015-16 budget is the highest in our country's history and was presented three months shy of the fifth anniversary of the promulgation of the new constitution on August 27, 2010. Around Sh154 billion was allocated to the governance, justice, law and order sectors, signaling government’s commitment to maintain the pace of already instituted reforms.
While we take stock of progress, we must evaluate current status of reforms, which is the cornerstone in the implementation of the constitution, and give feedback to Kenyans on value for money.
The implementation process has progressed despite many challenges and has made commendable strides. A myriad governance reforms kicked off in the police, judiciary, and administration of justice as well as in other government institutions and sectors. This requires institutions such as ours to review the law to ensure it is modernised, relevant and harmonised with the constitution.
