					View Vol. 7 (2023): Kabarak Journal of Law and Ethics

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.
