Historically, Kenya’s collections have always fallen below the budget and previous governments have heavily relied on loans to bridge the gaps. Currently, we have a projected budget of 3.66 trillion yet we are projecting to collect 2.89 trillion in revenue collections. We do not need to dig too deep to understand the crisis.
Freedom of religion is one of the most fundamental in the Constitution of Kenya, 2010, brooking a twin understanding; persons are free to practice their religions (Article 32), the so-called free exercise clause and government should not establish any religion (Article 8), the non-establishment clause.
Judicial independence is Kenya’s last buffer line, stopping the country from degenerating into absolute tyranny. Judicial independence is a collective national good. It will be protected as such. So long as we may have an independent Judiciary, the great interests of the people will be safe.
