constitutions will tell you that they are based on principles rather dealing with every minutiae. After spending Ksh10bn+ last time, one would have thought that we'd have a more rational approach to constitutional issues. Let’s ask ourselves:
- Is the current constitution wholly bad? If it is, then lets look at whether we can write the sections that are deemed most important first.
- Is it certain sections that offend? I think this is the more likely scenario with the executive section being the main one. In which case, we can have a focused debate between the so-called activists and Parliament and a committee of eminent legal and public minds and come up with well structure 3-pillar executive.
- Is it only one section? In which the debate would even be better focused.
- Can we change the constitution through minimum incremental reforms? Most definitely.
