The National Validation of the Children Bill 2018 is currently taking place at Sarova Stanley Hotel,Nairobi Kenya.
In attendance are the civil society organizations and government agencies who worked on the making of the children Bill 2018.
Mr. Noah Sanganyi from the department of children services said “As you sit here as experts you are not experts in the #ChildrenBillKE,children are the experts and they were involved in the process of development of the Bill,he further urged that together as a team we can protect our children in the society using the Law.”
The current Bill in place does not have rules of procedure,hence a need to include them in new Children Bill Kenya,this Children Bill 2018,has rules and procedures that will secure and protect our children.
Lady Justice Martha Koome,the co-chair of the National Steering Committee in her remarks said “To protect children,there is need for working in unison”
Together we can work for the best interest of the child and therefore children should be given the opportunity to participate in making their own laws.
Dr. Laibuta,the consultant on the development process of the children bill 2018 said “This current children bill 2018,has been developed to fit Kenya culture and to align to the Kenya Constitution of 2010 and in harmony with existing Laws elsewhere.”
