The US is adamant that it will not shy away from nudging Kenya towards the path of reforms.

Ambassador Michael Ranneberger said he shared in President Barrack Obama’s wish to see a prosperous Kenya, whose destiny would be greatly shaped by the enactment of a new constitution.

‘We have made it clear that a new constitution is absolutely essential for the future, security and prosperity of this great nation,” said Mr Ranneberger during the swearing in of 36 peace corps volunteers at his Nairobi residence.

In reply to allegations that his government was funding campaigns for the proposed constitution, the envoy said he will not be drawn into a political war of words with the No camp and US Congressman Chris Smith, a Republican.
