Vol. 5 No. 1 (2020): Kabarak Journal of Law and Ethics
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.
