Civil Rights/Open Government

KNC will fight to end discrimination in all forms―including discrimination based on tribe/race, sex, ethnicity or national origin, language, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, or disability. We believe in the essential Kenyan ideal that no one should be constrained by the circumstances of their birth, and that each of us should have the opportunity to make of our lives what we will.

KNC will work to ensure that all Kenyans have the opportunity to fully participate in our society―to live in a place where there are no second-class citizens, where each of us can go about our lives without fear of discrimination.

KNC believes that changing our politics will ensure an open government that is transparent and responsive to the needs of the people and will limit the influence of dynasties or certain class of people and ensure that government is accountable to the people.

A KNC government will be honest, transparent, and participatory. For too long, very few people have held sway behind closed doors, till Kenyans have become skeptical that the voices of ordinary people can be heard.  Hence we at KNC will try to restore the public’s faith in government by opening up the process of governing. Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their government is doing, more so now that technology has made it possible to easily and cheaply disseminate information. We are committed to creating the most open, transparent, and accountable government that we possibly can.

This we will do by using innovative tools, methods, and systems to solicit public feedback, offering Kenyans more opportunities to participate in policy making while providing government with the benefits of their collective expertise and information. Openness strengthens our democracy and promotes honesty, efficiency, and effectiveness in government. Currently at KNC we are seeking input from counties on the various issues/problems and will come up with a manifesto that is people driven and relevant to our country.

We all have a part to play in promoting equality and protecting Kenyans against discrimination.
