Law protects, caters for persons with disability
QUESTION: I am a disabled person currently employed in an environment that is not conducive for someone like me. Kindly let me know what the law provides in regard to persons with disability. It is a recognised fact that persons with disability have for a long time experienced discrimination in various aspects of their lives because of the negative perceptions that other people have towards them.

A proprietor of a public building shall adapt it to suit persons with disabilities — Article 22 (1) of the Persons with Disability Act 2003.

So, who is sleeping on the job — Parliament, Government or the disabled themselves? Why is Kenya not living up to the obligations of this legislation? Safety and accessibility standards, their monitoring and enforcement have become thorny, especially after the recent Nakumatt fire tragedy.
