Modern Law of Criminal Procedure in Kenya

Partridge Africa
Free sample

The law on criminal procedure in Kenya has tremendously changed after the Constitution of Kenya of 2010. New institutions with an impact on the criminal process such as the National Police Service, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, and the Supreme Court were created. Certain rights that were hitherto unavailable were entrenched in the constitution, including the right to bail irrespective of the offence and the right to legal representation. The superior courts have had a busy time in the interpretation of the current law, and groundbreaking jurisprudence has emerged. There is no doubt that the study of criminal procedure has significantly changed. This book covers all important aspects of criminal procedure, taking into consideration the changes brought about by the Constitution of 2010. It fills a void created by the lack of updated texts on the law of criminal procedure. It utilizes simple, easy-to-understand language and makes reference to both local and international case law. This book will prove to be an invaluable companion to students of criminal procedure, legal practitioners, researchers, and the general public.

Mark R. Levin has made the case, in numerous bestselling books that the principles undergirding our society and governmental system are unraveling. In The Liberty Amendments, he turns to the founding fathers and the constitution itself for guidance in restoring the American republic.

The delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention and the delegates to each state’s ratification convention foresaw a time when the Federal government might breach the Constitution’s limits and begin oppressing the people. Agencies such as the IRS and EPA and programs such as Obamacare demonstrate that the Framers’ fear was prescient. Therefore, the Framers provided two methods for amending the Constitution. The second was intended for our current circumstances—empowering the states to bypass Congress and call a convention for the purpose of amending the Constitution. Levin argues that we, the people, can avoid a perilous outcome by seeking recourse, using the method called for in the Constitution itself.

The Framers adopted ten constitutional amendments, called the Bill of Rights, that would preserve individual rights and state authority. Levin lays forth eleven specific prescriptions for restoring our founding principles, ones that are consistent with the Framers’ design. His proposals—such as term limits for members of Congress and Supreme Court justices and limits on federal taxing and spending—are pure common sense, ideas shared by many. They draw on the wisdom of the Founding Fathers—including James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and numerous lesser-known but crucially important men—in their content and in the method for applying them to the current state of the nation.

Now is the time for the American people to take the first step toward reclaiming what belongs to them. The task is daunting, but it is imperative if we are to be truly free.
