There is inordinate need for Kenya to have a clear system in place to facilitate informed and effective harmonization and approximation of laws in line with treaties and other international obligations she has committed to. There currently seems to exist a gap in terms of amending Kenya’s laws in line with the treaties she has ratified. As the institution charged with EAC affairs coordination, the State Department of East African Affairs, which has signed many protocols and treaties bare the mandate of ensuring the laws are tantamount to the full implementation of the same without creating conflicts. “As such, we have developed a policy to provide a framework for the harmonization and amendment of national laws to be consistent with treaties ratified before 2010 while taking into consideration the best interest of Kenya” said Ms. Rose Nyakwana, Principal Counsel and head of EAC Affairs Legal Unit while opening a three day Regional Harmonization and Amendment of national laws workshop in a Nakuru Hotel.
