The Constitution of Kenya, which was launched back in 2010 was a turning point in our country's history. The 2010 constitution reconfigured balance of power by devolving power and responsibilities from one national government to forty seven elected county governments. The 2010 constitution also recalibrated the powers between the three arms of the government; the judiciary, executive and lastly legislative.
