So Kenya goes to the polls today with fresh memories of the 2007 post electoral violence, tensions high but hope in the horizon for a 'new start' and this time round Kenyans get to choose the kind of future they want for Kenya.
Personally, and rightfully so, I believe that the proposed constitution has fundamental flaws. Some flaws warrant more attention than others for example, the Kadhi's courts being entrenched in the constitution thereby giving a clear advantage of Islam as a religion over other religions in
. The ideal would have been to present a flawless document for the vote but this is not the case. Kenya
My values would never allow me to conform to the majority's opinion and I believe that this document is flawed. However, considering the resources that have been input in the referendum process, and the time that
has waited for change, I vote in favor of the new constitution on condition that the Yes & No teams work together to amend the contentious issues that stand out. Kenya
