    Vol. 7 (2023)

    We are pleased to present the seventh volume of the Kabarak Law Journal of Law and Ethics (KJLE), which focuses on the Kenyan Children Act of 2022. In the lead up to this publication, Kabarak University in collaboration with Save the Children (Kenya and Madagascar) successfully organised a hybrid half-day conference to commemorate the Day of the African Child on 16 June 2023. The conference brought together child law scholars and practitioners to reflect on the theme ‘The rights of the child in the digital environment’.

    Professor Robert Nanima, Expert Member of the African Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (ACERWC), and Justice Heston Nyaga, Judge of High Court of Kenya, were among the chief guests. We are proud to publish Professor Nanima’s keynote address in this volume. It is a singular privilege to have Justice Teresia Matheka’s Foreword that revitalises the success of the conference and ushers the conversations in this volume. A social commentary packaged in a poem opens the discussion which is further expounded by four full-length articles.

    This volume concludes with two speeches. The first features Professor Robert Nanima’s keynote address on the commemoration of the Day of the African Child. The second is Justice Grace Ngenye’s keynote address titled ‘Reflections on the status of protection of the rights of persons with intellectual and psychosocial disabilities in Kenya’ which closes the volume.

    Vol. 6 No. 1 (2022)

    The editorial team of the Kabarak Journal of Law and Ethics is pleased to usher in our latest issue. Volume 6 of the KJLE was due in December 2021. And as the world was rocking under the uncertainty of a pandemic, the editorial team was itself experiencing transition in the strangest of times. A new editorial team was appointed in 2021, with the immediate former editorial team taking up the reigns in the sister periodicals at Kabarak Law School, African Journal of Commercial Law (AJCL) (JA Omolo) and the East African Community Law Journal (Edmond Shikoli).

    It gives us great pleasure to once more present to you the latest edition of the Journal of Law and Ethics. The JLE continues to distinguish itself as the leading publication on topical governance issues and in this edition, the array of issues covered spans from the exercise of jurisdiction by the Supreme Court of Kenya to regulation of cartels, taming the excesses of discretion in public procurement, public participation in county budgeting processes, improving fisheries regulation, creating accountability in county government impeachment processes and even the BBI process, one of the issues that has stirred up heated debates since 2018. The breadth of issues covered is not limited to Kenya but also extends to other countries in the region. Two articles in this edition enlighten us on the concept of plea bargaining and the extent of youth political participation rights as they apply in Nigeria. By dint of this expanse, our readers will have the benefit of understanding governance issues in the context of the wider African region.
