On 27th August 2010, the current Constitution of Kenya was promulgated, hence, repealing the previous Constitution (also referred to as the Independence Constitution). The purpose of the Constitution was to protect, guide, address or
provide mechanisms that the State and its citizens should interact, not to mention addressing historical activities that breached or violated other people’s rights, and, in this case, matters falling under acquisition and use of land. The
Constitution is prospective in nature but in certain instances, it applies retrospectively more so when addressing issues of land injustices.
