THE KENYAN HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION (KHRC) REPORT – NEW KENYA DEMANDS MORE, THE NEW CONSTITUTION REQUIRES MORE

Over the last week the Forum has published a series of postings considering various aspects of the Kenyan Human Rights Commission’s (KHRC) report, Lest We Forget: The faces of Impunity in Kenya. The KHRC report was a substantial document in many ways and there obviously was not time or space enough for the Forum to have covered all aspects of it but we hope we have provided readers with food for thought.

The Forum has illustrated its concerns about Lest We Forget and the KHRC’s modus operandi. Collating old reports, some of which were based on investigations that were deeply flawed, undermined the KHRC’s case. Being selective as to which reports and individuals named in them were to be included gives cause for concern. Assuming guilt before proving innocence will not do: the new Kenya under our new constitution demands the opposite.

The KHRC are right however, that further investigations need to be instigated and where appropriate, action taken, but the Forum urges that this time they are handled through the due process of the law, affording full constitutional rights to both accusers and the accused, free from political interference and based on evidence that has been rigorously tested: the new Kenya under our new constitution requires it.

This posting draws the series on the KHRC’s report to a close (although we may well return to the subject) by bringing together many related postings and links to other sites, some 20 in all, from which readers can draw their own conclusions.

We hope that Professor Yash Pal Ghai, and the KHRC’s Executive Director Atsango Chesoni, Vice Chair Betty Murungi and Programmes Officer Tom Kagwe, will read, consider and who knows, even respond. The Forum welcomes your contributions to the debate and corrections to any errors we might have made.
