NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 14 – The 4th Annual Legislative Summit that seeks to assess progress made in legislation that supports entrenching devolution is set to kick off in Kisumu on Monday.
More than 4,000 delegates are expected to attend the conference that brings together Senators and MCAs from the 47 County Assemblies and partners.
The theme of the summit this year is “accelerating devolution; assessing the achievements and addressing the gaps in policy and legislation” and seeks to build on the gains of the first three legislative summits.
It will further seek to identify the gaps and challenges in legislation that impedes devolution and develop measures to address them.
It will also identify opportunities that can be harnessed to accelerate devolution and provide a platform for dialogue amongst key actors in devolution to learn and share experiences.
The strengthening of inter and intra-governmental relations for effective implementation of devolution will also form part of the discussions.
