On 27th August 2010 Friday I was present at Uhuru Park as to witness the historical approval and signing of the new constitution which Kenyans voted for on August 4th 2010. This was an important step forward, and it really demonstrated the commitment of Kenyans’ to a future of Unity, Democracy, and Equal Justice for all-even the powerful. This was a noble step by the then Prime Minister of the Republic of Kenya H.E Rt. Hon Raila Odinga and H.E Hon Mwai Kibaki the President.
It was a hope that by this new dispensation, Kenya will see the light of Sustainable development by obeying and respecting the peoples’ constitution. It is barely 5 years down the line and we can count the benefits of the new constitution which Current Jubilee Deputy President William Ruto and some key people in current government went against and wanted to kill through abortion 5 years ago.

The strength of the Constitution lies entirely in the determination of each citizen to defend it. Only if every single citizen feels duty bound to do his share in this defense are the constitutional rights secure. We the people are the rightful masters of Government, legislatures and the Judiciary, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.
As we celebrate the achievements and effort we fought for, let’s remember that the liberties of our country, the freedom of our constitution, are worth defending against all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks.
Thanks and God bless the Republic of Kenya.
Happy Katiba Day.
