Q+A Contentious issues in Kenyas referendum
WHY ARE CHRISTIANS AGAINST KADHI COURTS?
Opposition to the Muslim kadhi courts has brought together Christian clergy and some politicians to oppose the proposed constitution.
The kadhi courts deal with matters of marriage, divorce and inheritance among Muslims.
The referendum has heightened differences between Kenyas Muslims and its Christian churches, which have criticised the draft constitution for including the kadhi courts, saying it would give power to religious courts in a secular nation.
The religious tensions coincide with security concerns in the region with authorities on high alert against Muslim insurgents in neighbouring Somalia.
Al Shabaab, a Somali rebel group which professes loyalty to al Qaeda, claimed responsibility for two bomb attacks in Uganda which increased concerns about Shabaabs ability to carry out more attacks in the region and beyond.
Kenyas constitution has provided for kadhi courts since 1963, with the courts serving the mainly coastal Muslim population, but the east African countrys secular High Court has jurisdiction over civil and criminal matters.
A kadhi court verdict can be appealed at the High Court.
The constitution proposes to widen the sphere of the kadhi courts beyond Coast Province, meaning their jurisdiction would expand across the nation and their scope would increase.
Kenyas population of about 40 million is about 45 percent Protestant, 33 percent Roman Catholic and 10 percent Muslim, the rest following indigenous faiths or other beliefs.
kadhi courts = sharia courts
Ten Reasons to Vote NO
7. THE DRAFT DOES NOT MAKE KENYANS EQUAL BEFORE THE LAW
If the draft is passed as it is, then there will be two classes of people in Kenya: Kenyans and Muslims.
This is because Muslims are exempted from the Bill of Rights by Article 24 (4).
All Kenyans should be equal before the law.
8. THE DRAFT ENTRENCHES KADHIS COURTS EVEN THOUGH THE HIGH COURT SAID THEY ARE UN-CONSTITUTIONAL
The landmark ruling by the High Court on 24th May 2010 said that inclusion of Kadhis Courts in the Constitution is discriminatory, illegal and unconstitutional!
In disregard of this ruling, the draft in Articles 169 and 170 entrenches them.
The Kadhis Courts are an internal dispute resolution mechanism for Muslims, and therefore they should not be in the constitution.
The High Court also said that the government should not use tax payers money to maintain the Kadhis Courts or pay their salaries.
If the Kadhis Courts are not constitutional in the current constitution, why should they be put in the new constitution?
