As we undertook our research for this special issue on ‘Saba Saba’, it became increasingly obvious that there was a link between Saba Saba and the struggle for a new Constitution. While Saba Saba’s main aim was a return to political pluralism and a multi-party state, many who participated in it realized that it was just the beginning of a process to completely transform and re-write the social contract the state had made with the people of Kenya in 1963. This is the story this section tells: We have brought together documents that will give our readers a link into the real life struggle for a new constitution which culminated in the passing of the 2010 Constitution almost 20 years later.
