The Legislative Summit 2019 will seek to build on the gains of the first three legislative summits while providing an avenue for Kenya Legislatures to critically interrogate their roles in the devolved governance structure, six years after its implementation begun. The pioneer devolved system of government largely focused on setting up of structures and hence much of the attention was on establishing the policy, legal and institution framework for democratic governance. The theme of this summit will focus on delivering on the objects of devolution guided by the constitutionally outlined principles as stipulated in Articles 174 and 175 respectively.
Proposed theme :
“Accelerating devolution; assessing the achievements and addressing the gaps in policy and legislation”
