Debate: Kenya beyond 50 – Devolution: Problem or Answer in Kenya? Jan. 29 2014 @ Alliance Française Auditorium
Kenya beyond 50: DEVOLUTION: PROBLEM OR ANSWER IN KENYA?
Following countrywide festivities to mark its jubilee anniversary of independence, it is now time to contemplate ‘Kenya beyond 50.’ As we begin 2014, the debate around the effective implementation of the 2010 Constitution continues to be in full swing.
The Katiba Institute (KI) is well placed to contribute to the national discussion as its stated mandate is to enhance the implementation and the realization of constitutional objectives through research, education, litigation and encouragement of public participation.
The panel of experts and decision makers to discuss the impact of the devolution of government, in particular, will include Professor Yash Pal Ghai, the former chairperson of the Constitution of Kenya Review Commission. The discussion will be moderated by, John Sibi-Okumu, journalist and broadcaster.
Are the objects of devolution to ensure a more inclusive form of governance, closer to the people, that would lead to fair and equitable development for ‘Wanjiku’ being achieved?
