LANCASTER HOUSE CONFERENCE

This was a series of three meetings in England in 1960, 1962 and 1963 in which Kenya's independence was negotiated. In 1960, lack of agreement led the British Colonial Secretary McLeod to issue an interim constitution. In 1962 a framework for self-government was negotiated, and the 1963 conference in London finalized constitution arrangements for Kenya's independence as a dominion. The constitution included entrenched provisions for citizenship, fundamental rights, and composition of the bicameral legislature
