The present Constitution does have many principles and institutions of the Bomas draft—but not two critical features, resisted by politicians. When in opposition Kibaki claimed to be bitterly against the executive presidency, denigrating it as an “imperial presidency”.

We have come full circle: At least on this point, the talk is all of a parliamentary executive system. There is no discussion of the way a parliamentary system really works.
