This paper analyses these cases to illustrate the legal pluralism of Kenya, examining how African customary law is recognised and applied at official law courts; how the contents of customary law are described in plaints and defences, given or found in evidence and established in judgements; how the formal legal systems are connected to the informal or grass-roots systems, and how human rights (especially those of women/wives) are considered in the administration of customary law.

The concept of the "king's peace" traces directly to Anglo-Saxon law in the sense that every freeman's house had a "peace"; if it was broken, the violator had to pay.

The older the code—the French civil code is 160 years old, the German civil code is about 70—the greater is the weight of the judicial gloss by which the text is overlaid.

The latter concept is definitely more acceptable and reasonable and it is likely to be correct to argue that the offending diplomat could even be killed in self-defence.*43 Therefore the receiving state may, without breaching its obligations under the principle of personal inviolability, detain a diplomatic agent if he commits a crime, which is a flagrant breach of law, in order to ensure both the security of the diplomat himself and the public.

Modern law is characterized by conditions of both legality and legitimacy and the latter is not exhausted by the former. The idea of a presumption in favor of the constitutionality of challenged action is certainly a coherent idea, but it is not clear why such a presumption should be called "strict construction."
