I’m currently reading The Constitution of Kenya 2010 & remembering the excitement with which I voted for it and received the news that it would be promulgated.
How time flies, it seems. Facebook recently reminded me I posted a picture immediately after I left the polling centre. It felt bittersweet.
The copy I have is a small pocket edition released by Kenya Law Reports. As I rode the bus today morning, the child seated next to me kept looking at it and I wanted to tell him just how much this means.
Here’s hoping that re-reading the constitution can rekindle the fire that once burned in my heart. It may just recharge whatever social justice batteries I feel are running low.
