If the Bible has been translated to all the Local Languages in Kenya, Why hasn’t the Constitution been Translated in the same way? We still ask Kenyans to promote their culture and we still can’t give them access to the most important document on the land through Translation.
Some People may say the Constitution keeps changing but since the Promulgation of the New constitution, it hasn’t changed much. Just few amendments which can easily be translated too. I believe there are many Kenyans who haven’t been able to access education and are missing out on what the constitution, the rules of engagement in the daily affairs of the Nation entails.
This may simply be one of the reasons apart from Corruption as to why a Chicken thief gets 5 years in prison and doesn’t appeal while looters of public coffers get only 4M fine or just 4 years in prison.
The same constitution states that there is a right to access of information. But doesn’t this inability and unavailability of a Translated constitution act as a barrier to access of information to many who don’t understand or read English or Swahili and are Kenyans? It’s even difficult to access a Swahili written constitution!
