Goodwill Message to Kenyans during the Upcoming General Elections
The Kenya Law Reform Commission (KLRC) has a mission to facilitate law reform conducive to social, economic and political development. As such, the Commission serves the Citizens of Kenya and supports both National and County Governments and other stakeholders in matters of law reform.
The Commission ACKNOWLEDGES the principles upon which Kenyans gave themselves the Constitution of Kenya 2010 among them fundamental law reform towards good governance, justice, rule of law, public participation, accountability and democracy.
The Commission is PLEASED that this Constitution has equally birthed several gains to the people of Kenya in almost all spheres. We particularly note that the social, economic and political development rights of our people are protected under this supreme law. This enshrinement provides an environment that has continued to flourish since promulgation.
The Commission thus RECOGNIZES the fast approaching Constitutional call of duty borne by all eligible Kenyans to exercise their democratic and political rights to VOTE on the 8th of August 2017. The Commission is CONFIDENT that the great People of the Republic of Kenya and all election stakeholders will exercise this right as enshrined in the Constitution and under the Law.
We particularly note that this is an OPPORTUNITY to continue working closely in all areas in strengthening issue based, citizen centered, accountable and result-oriented leadership and governance towards realizing our development goals as spirited in the Constitution of Kenya 2010 and the vision 2030 blueprint.
KLRC has and shall RESPECT the stakeholders’ active role in the electoral process as currently evidenced and commits to uphold every genuine effort towards a Successful, Credible, Transparent, Accountable and PEACEFUL 2017 General Election.
Please accept our highest best wishes and CONGRATULATIONS.
GOD BLESS KENYA.
