Ethnic-Nationalism and Multi-party Politics in Kenya

The process of democratic change in Kenya was marked by a transition from a single party to a multi-party system. This was made possible through the repeal of Section 2A of the constitution in 1991, (Oyugi 1999).This change marked the return of competitive politics which was initially suppressed by the Kenya African National Union (KANU) regime which made it illegal to form any other political party, except for KANU. Re-introduction of multi-partism in Kenya hoped to achieve among other things; political competiveness, enhance democracy, improve governance and creation of an organizational frame work within which other parties could contest for power against Kenya African Union (KANU) (Oyugi 1999)

THE IMPACT OF FOREIGN AID ON DEMOCRACY IN KENYA

This study seeks to demonstrate the aspect that foreign aid in actual sense does not promote democracy. In retrospect, aid undermines the quality of governance by weakening the institutions of accountability and instead promotes corruption, cronyism and market distortion. Also makes governments more responsible to the donor agencies and governments rather than the citizenry that gave them their mandate. This perpetuates neo~patrimonialism (based on neo-patrirnonialism theory) in most developing countries and especially in Sub-Saharan Africa where leaders establish patronage links with specific bilateral partners.

THE ROLE OF CIVIC EDUCATION IN SHAPING VOTING BEHAVIOUR IN THE KENYAN 2013 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS

1.1 Background of the Study

During a single decade, beginning in the late 1980s, initiatives towards democratic reform took place across the world. New constitutional regimes came into being. In countries that were establishing or re-establishing democracies after a period of non-democratic rule, the general public as well as leaders realized that major changes in formal and informal civic education were required to prepare citizens for this social, political and economic order. What those changes should be and how they should be initiated was not clear, however. .

THE IMPACT OF REFUGEES ON KENYA'S ECONOMIC SECURITY

This study set out to determine the impact of refugees on Kenya's economic security. The hypothesis of the study posited that the influx of refugees in Kenya  impacts negatively on Kenya's economic security. The study was informed by the theory of structuration. The data that was used in the study was secondary in nature and was collected from books, journals, the internet, published and unpublished works and the newspapers. According to the findings of the study, the rapid increase in the number of refugees in Kenya has minimal effect on the country's economic security.
