GOODWILL MESSAGE TO KENYANS ON WELCOMING POPE FRANCIS
NAIROBI KENYA: Wednesday, November 25th 2015
The Kenya Law Reform Commission, joins Kenyans and other stakeholders in conveying our warmest welcome to Pope Francis on his first visit to Kenya on this 25th day of November 2015. It is indeed an honor that on this auspicious occasion, most Kenyans resonate very well with the anticipated Pope`s message which is anchored on peace and social-cultural transformation.
As we celebrate, Papa`s presence, the Commission is pleased to note that albeit the expected transitional challenges, the social, economic and political development of our people has continued to flourish and strengthened in a wide range of areas of legal and institutional reforms especially after the promulgation of the Constitution of Kenya in 2010.
Our commission which serves both National and County Governments on matters of law reform shares the Pope`s transformation agenda as spelt in our mission to facilitate law reform conducive to social, economic and political development. This is achieved by keeping under review all the law of Kenya to ensure their systematic development and reform in conformity with Kenya's constitutional framework. Further, we have continued to work closely in all areas of our mandate in strengthening issue based, citizen centered, accountable and result-oriented reforms.
We remain confident that the coming of the Pope shall strengthen our resolve to make greater strides towards societal well-being.
To Pope Francis and the People of Kenya, please accept our warmest regards, best wishes and good-will.
