Katumanga, M.  2004.  Civil Society And The Politics Of Constitutional Reforms In Kenya: A Case Study Of The National Convention Executive Council (NCEC) . Abstractcivil_society_and_the_politics_of_constitutional_reforms_in_kenya_a_case_study_of_the_national_convention_executive_council_ncec.pdfWebsite

This paper examines and analyses the role of the National Convention Executive Council (NCEC) in engaging the Kenyan state for constitutional reforms. It argues that although NCEC (through mass action) was able to force the regime to initiate dialogue with the opposition and civil society formations, it did not succeed in engendering state commitment to the letter and spirit of accords emergent out of these engagements. The paper attributes this to two core factors: that is the regimes ability to divide and successfully isolate the radical formation from the mainstream opposition and the religious sector co-optation, economic motivation and diplomatic duplicity and the inability of NCEC’s leadership to interpret social process correctly, to the extent of evolving right institutional design and programmatic responses for mobilisation; and engagement of state.

{ The Blantyre coma scale (BCS) is used to assess children with severe falciparum malaria, particularly as a criterion for cerebral malaria, but it has not been formally validated. We compared the BCS to the Adelaide coma scale (ACS), for Kenyan children with severe malaria. We examined the inter-observer agreement between 3 observers in the assessment of coma scales on 17 children by measuring the proportion of agreement (PA), disagreement rate (DR) and fixed sample size kappa (kappa n). We assessed the sensitivity and specificity of the scales in detecting events (seizures and hypoglycaemia) in 240 children during admission and the usefulness of the scales in predicting outcome. There was considerable disagreement between observers in the assessment of both scales (BCS: PA = 0.55
