Seeing this situation, KAS and Dialogue Africa Foundation (DAF) have partnered and come up with a forum that calls for the involvement of other state actors and civil society organisations (CSO’s) to chart a way forward, and start a discussion on matters of devolution and devolved funds.

The new Constitution: A challenge for political parties and leaders in Kenya – The German experience

Deutschlandseminar 15.-24.Mai 2011 in Karlsruhe and Berlin

Until a new constitution came onto effect in 2010, Kenya as a state was governed by a central government. Among many other positive provisions, the new constitution introduces a decentralised government system. Since Kenya has never had a decentralised government system there is an urgent need for responsibilities to be passed on to government structures on subordinate levels and the Kenyan citizens.Besides the continuous consultations with KAS the political parties and partners of KAS will therefore require comprehensive training on government structures of a devolved political system.
