In probing the issue of case backlogs, the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee of the National Assembly noted that inadequate judicial officers and lack of adequate resources are a major impediment to case resolution (National Assembly, 2019). To show the comparison between Kenya and another country of similar characteristics, the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee compared Kenya to Germany with a population of 80 million but had 20,000 judges, leading to a ratio of one judge for every 4,000 citizens. Although most arguments made on resourcing are based on benchmarks such as 2.5% of the national spending, the cardinal economics rule is resourcing courts to meet the desired efficiency outcome that the public, parliament and other actors wish to achieve.

The Citizen’s Alternative Budget contains budget proposals from the public and private sector stakeholders, who attended the IEA annual pre-budget hearings that took place on 27th and 28th January, 2021 virtually. The proposals submitted were consolidated and synthesized by the IEA according to the various Medium Terms Expenditure Framework (MTEF) sectors, largely based on their feasibility, whether they make economic sense and whether they are in line with the national priorities of the government. Furthermore, this alternative budget takes cognizance of the draft budget policy statement 2021/2022 as a pre-budget statement that sets the macroeconomic framework through which the government will prepare the forthcoming budget.

This brief assesses and analyses policy gaps on youth participation in governance processes as well as how corruption affects participation. In particular, the brief analyses youth participation, political leadership, political parties, as well as participatory budgeting. The quest for youth participation in governance, politics, and other developmental processes is an increasing global concern. To this end, the UN General Assembly adopted the World Programme of Action for Youth to the year 2000 and beyond to advance the youth agenda in matters of governance. For the last decade, KNBS data shows that the youth between 18-34 years constitutes on average about 30% of Kenya’s population.
