A group of atheists in Kenya want the Kenyan constitution amended and the name “God” totally removed from the constitution of the country.

The atheists even want a constitutional referendum to be held before the 2022 General Elections to determine if any reference to God should be left in the constitution.

“We would like to make it clear to the public that we shall be pushing for the following amendments to the Constitution of Kenya 2010: First. That the preamble which states: We, the people of Kenya– acknowledging the supremacy of the Almighty God of all creation: be expunged,” read part of the statement.

According to them, the Constitution must not assume that all Kenyans believe in a Supreme Being and that Article 170 on Kadhi Courts be expunged.

But why would they make such a demand?

It is because they “would like a Constitution that is truly secular. We would want equal treatment of all religions by the state. That the words – so help me God – be expunged from all the oaths of affirmation under the third schedule”.
