Devolved government in Kenya – Devolution in Kenya


In the new Constitution of Kenya, the Provincial Administration will be restructured. In the old order, the officials were at the province, district, division, location and the sub-location. They were headed by the provincial commissioners, district commissioners, district officers, chiefs and sub-chiefs, respectively.

A new structure is being worked out to fit in the new two-level devolved governance: the national government and the county. Devolved Government is provided for in Chapter 11 (Articles 174-200) of the new Constitution.

The new laws also replaces the existing eight provinces (Central, Coast, Eastern, North Eastern, Nairobi, Nyanza, Rift Valley and Western) with 47 counties (see First Schedule (Article 6 (1) ) that will be second level of governance after the national government.
