NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 27- As the 21-gun salute went off and the jumbo flag hoisted, tears flowed freely among Kenyans who had braved the morning drizzle at Uhuru Park to witness the historic promulgation of the new Constitution.

Those interviewed by Capital News termed the colourful ceremony a unifying moment and asked politicians to shelve their differences in opinion so as to ensure the contents of the new Constitution were implemented.

“We want a new Kenya; we passed the new Constitution and we now want real change. Time for fooling around is up… time for tribalism is up. Leaders who are not with us are against us and we will not vote them in,” said one Kenyan.

Others commended the country’s top leadership for unifying the country and for passing the new law. George Otieno asked Kenyans to remain peaceful and keep watch over the implementation process.
