In most cases, buyers don’t even bother to know when the defect period lapses or whether it has lapsed until they have closed the deal. In the United Kingdom for example, there is an insurance policy in existence for some time now called structural warranty or new home warranty. Any insurance company issuing this warranty carries out thorough inspection of the new development to determine among other things its structural suitability. Counties need to enact legislations that require all new buildings to have at least ten years structural warranty from recognised insurance companies to protect home buyers. There may be other ways to address this but I don’t see a better one than this – Structural warranty of all new buildings is the way to go.

While Wanjiku is every Tom Dick and Harry, Wagio is the persecuted Wanjiku, whose interests must now be taken care of in the proposed referendum or the constitutional amendments will serve no purpose. First, it must not be forgotten that constitutional amendments is an important issue, bigger than the handshake, and must, therefore, accommodate more interests than those of the two political leaders. The country will badly fail if the proposed referendum has a sectional and limited foundation rather than a national and broad one. The amendments must also remove from the Constitution detention without charge or trial that was the bedrock of one party dictatorship.
