Kenya Passes New Constitution


Tristan McConnell, GlobalPost

"Kenyans voted overwhelmingly for a new constitution that could signal a fresh start for the country's historically damaged and divisive politics. Two-thirds of the country's 12.4 million voters cast their ballot in favor of a constitution that promises to limit the president's powers, reform land ownership, devolve more power to the county level. The new constitution would also introduce a bill of rights for the first time in the country's history."
