devolution in kenya


Devolution is the statutory granting of powers from the central government of a sovereign state to government at a subnational level, such as a regional, local, or state level. It’s a form of decentralization because the devolved territories have the power to make legislation relevant to the area .legislation creating devolved parliaments or assemblies can be revealed or amended by central government in the same way as any statute.Devolution has three partsThe transfer of power to a subordinate elected bodyThe transfer of power on geographical basisThe transfer of functions at present exercised by parliament


This is recognition of a country’s diversity particularly the rights of minorities and marginalized communities and other groups, to manage their own affairs and development.


The centralized systems under a powerful president tended to ethicize politics of exclusion .through the democracy then every community will feel part of nation with increased loyalty. the emphasis is on inclusion of all groups at both national and country level


A deficit of democracy is absence of people’s involvement in politics and policy discussion, or their ability to demand accountability of the government. Democracy strengthens  by separation of powers.


When devolution is done then local resources are required to be shared equally. the scheme of financing counties is biased in favour of the  less developed areas.
