More than two years after coming into power, Kenya’s Jubilee coalition government has improved economic growth, devolution and better service delivery through the Huduma Centres in line with its manifesto on security, the economy and open governance.
Yet, there is a view that a lack of political will and commitment to good governance has undermined these gains, resulting in deteriorating levels of public security and more corruption.
The National Assembly was recently accused of being lax in its oversight role.
The judiciary and the executive have also been accused of weakening the fight against corruption.
A review of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration shows a litany of tasks yet to be completed, including the implementation of the 2010 constitution.
This seminar will examine progress made by Kenyatta’s administration and will identify notable policy gaps. How successful has the government been in adhering to principles of good governance, combatting negative ethnicity and fighting corruption?
