About Devolution in Kenya
“Kenya’s Constitution has often been described as ambitious, largely because it introduced a drastic departure from the previous norm, which was characterized by a centralized system of governance. The centralized system was challenged by its consistent inability to ensure equitable allocation of resources and development. The antidote came when the promulgation of the Constitution of Kenya 2010 introduced a devolved governance structure by establishing a two-tier system of government comprising of National Government and 47 County Governments working collaboratively to improve access to public resources and services to the ordinary citizens. By challenging history and fundamentally altering the form of government, Kenyans and the global community continue to monitor and appraise the extent to which devolution is translating to improved welfare of citizens and equitable development. This means that Kenyans are also closely monitoring the relevance of institutions and stakeholders with a mandate to make devolution work. The devolved governance structures were established in 2013 just after the general elections of 2012. Institutions that were established to facilitate transition and implementation of the new constitutional order have for the past four years gained a lot of experience in managing change within a devolved system of governance.” – Executive Summary, The Council of Governors (COG) Kenya Strategic Plan 2017 - 2022.
