ABSTRACT The study was geared towards the Constitutional process experienced in Kenya since it gained her independence in 12th December, 1963 to its present form. Kenya had a Constitution in place from the time it gained her independence; this independent Constitution provided among others people's rights. Despite this, the study will prove that the loopholes in that Constitution, led to gross violation of people's right over the years, for instance the independent Constitution gave the executive immense powers. The executive used such powers to amend the Constitution and enact laws at the expense of the citizens, hence necessitating the need for this study. The purpose of this study is to show the needs that propelled Constitutional reforms in Kenya and the stages through which Constitutional growth has gone through to achieve a democratic society governed on the principles of Constitutionalism and the rule of law in Kenya. According to the findings the main reasons for lack of Constitutionalism in Kenya can be attributed to excessive powers enjoyed by the executive, corruption, the land issue, weak laws and poor implementation mechanisms. Finally, recommendations to the foregoing root causes of unconstitutional history in Kenya is reduction of powers enjoyed by the executive, more powers should be given to the Kenya Ant-Corruption body to adequately deal with corruption and respect of the principle of separation of powers.
