The civil society has urged all Kenyans to remain vigilant and hold political leaders and government institutions accountable even after the passing into law of the National Accord Bill that sealed the grand coalition deal.
Speaking at a national accord public forum held in Kisumu, constitutional lawyer Dr. Ben Sihanya called on both the citizens and civil society to be vigilant, saying the government lacked a strong opposition to put it on its toes.
The executive Director of Haki Focus Harun Ndubi, cautioned against having a bloated cabinet that would burden the Kenyan taxpayer.
He appealed to political parties to be vehicles of change and not tools geared to providing political patronage which he said hindered true democracy.
The forum that was attended by members of the religious society, youth groups and the legal society.
