The people of Kenya recognize and appreciate the importance of  access to Information in fostering democratic, accountable and just governments.Having the recognition entrenched in article 35 of the constitution is just the first step.The FOI bill is fundamental in putting checks and balances as well as safeguarding the law against prejudices and abuse.

 

Access to information is central to public participation in the enforcement and protection of the Constitution.  It is also important in enabling citizens to play their watchdog role in safeguarding public resources.

We now have the chance again to support.
