From Budget 2001/2 to 2002/3 – Dare We Hope?

Theme: General,

Time allowed for the debate on Supplementary Estimates in Kenya may not be sufficient for MPs to make any useful contribution but rather forces parliament to rubber stamp the revised estimates as presented by the Minister for Finance. However, this does not render the analysis of the 2001/2002 Supplementary Estimates irrelevant since certain changes effected during the Revised Budget 2001/2002 will have an implication on the future budgets.

The Devolution – Majimbo Debate : Paying Close Attention To This Issues

Theme: General,

At all the crucial turns in this country’s history, the agenda on how to structure government; share power and resources; and manage our ethnic diversity, has always featured. A few times we have attempted to respond to this difficult agenda, but our response has been, for most part, evasive, inconclusive or out rightly inaccurate. The issues however remain and recur. The constitution review process has brought us to another major historical turning point and the issues have returned. The review process is probably our last frontier, which is why, we must seize it to imaginatively and unambiguously address these issues.
