A health commission?

It's been seven years, give or take, since we promulgated a constitution to replace the one that in the minds of many had encouraged the worst vices amongst members of the elected classes. In the Constitution you will find the National Land Commission, the Commission on Revenue Allocation, the National Police Service Commission, the Teachers Service Commission and others, better known as "Chapter Fifteen Commissions". 

Now be honest with me. Have these commissions made your life better?

This is a serious question. It is one of the reasons why the 100 days' strike by doctors was so difficult to resolve (according to the doctors anyway). Do you think Kenya can live with the establishment of a National Health Commission?
