President Uhuru Kenyatta has called on the need to improve the 2010 constitution.
He referenced that the late Mboya cautioned against constitutional rigidity hence the need to make necessary changes that benefit the people.
According to President Uhuru, moving forward as a country requires a new approach that involves changing the political architecture.
“He argued that a Constitution cannot be useful to a country if it is an end to itself. A good Constitution must be responsive to the aspirations of a nation & be a means to a greater end,” said President Uhuru.
It is not a moment to replace it but to improve it. A moment that will correct what we did not get right in 2010. We need one that will bring an end to cycles of violence that we have witnessed since 1992. One that will deepen our democratic credentials and lead to an inclusive society,” he said.
