English could cease being Kenya\u2019s official language in favour of Kiswahili, if Kenyans adopt recommendations by the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) taskforce. In its draft report, the team, formed in the aftermath of March, 2018 handshake, proposes that it be made mandatory for all official government documents to be published in Kiswahili. According to the BBI team, the move would complement efforts to ensure national ethos are entrenched in the life of Kenyans. The Constitution recognises Kiswahili and English as the official languages of country, while Kiswahili is the national language. The team was, however, divided on whether Article 7(2) of the Constitution should be amended to make Kiswahili the official language and another clause be introduced, making English the second international language. Kenya\u2019s history Other recommendation include making Kiswahili the medium of learning at all levels of education, in addition to teaching authentic Kenya\u2019s history which should be made a compulsory subject in both primary and secondary schools. The report listed national ethos as patriotism, sharing, social justice, promotion of national language, non-discrimination and gender and inter-generational equity. The ethos, the team argues, provide a moral compass which inhibits harmful acts towards others in society and in the performance of duty, both in public and private sectors. \u201cThere is need to make negative stereotyping, hate speech, and all forms of ethnic, gender, racial and disability-based discrimination offences punishable by law,\u201d reads the report in part. \u201cIt is the known, accepted, shared, predictable and expected way of relating to one another and doing things. When someone meets a Kenyan anywhere that person should be able to immediately know that she or he is dealing with a Kenyan.\u201d The BBI team called for the review of Article 10 of the Constitution to strongly promote national values and development of a Sessional Paper on national culture and heritage. Teeth to bite There is also need to revise the mandate of the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) to it more teeth to bite, the team proposes. Also among BBI team\u2019s recommendations is establishment of an annual \u201cKenya week\u201d to promote a national dress, abolishment of quota system in school and college admission as well as promotion of national art.
