dc.description.abstractThe Constitution of Kenya 2010, under chapter 11, introduced the concept of the county government system of devolution to Kenya. This brought about a sense of hope to the mwananchi as it signified the return of the government into the hands ofthe people and away from the grasp of the few high and mighty. It also sought to enforce equitable sharing of resources all over the country through county governments.This paper set out to research fmiher into the legal and institutional framework around fiscal decentralization as enshrined in the constitution and find whether the legislation to cater for it, was able to meet the objectives set under chapter 11 .In carrying out the research, journal articles by various authors, statutes and internet sources gave the much needed guidance and material to complete this paper.The study takes a look at Kenya's history with regards to decentralized government, highlights the main laws in relation to fiscal decentralization, critiques the legal framework and draws lessons from South Africa and Nigeria in equitable distribution of national resources in devolved governance.The research ultimately gives various recommendations, especially with regards to legislative reform, that would ensure the growth and success of devolution in Kenya.en_US
