Hakijamii joins other NGOs to call for quick passing of the Freedom of Information Bill and push for Citizen Participation in Governance Processess

Written by Hakijamii.

Failure by Parliament to enact the Freedom of Information Bill 2012 is threatening democracy and good governance, experts have warned. The experts drawn from the civil society and Non-Governmental Organizations further cautioned that a similar reluctance by county governments to enact County Citizens Participation Bills jeopardises public participation in governance and budget making processes as espoused in the Constitution. This, they say, could lead to misappropriation—even plunder of resources—especially at the counties, whose resource-base could rise to over Sh400 billion should the clamour to increase state funding to devolved units succeed.
