Beschreibung

Youth participation in political parties and political processes in Kenya has been limited. The main reason is a governance order within political parties that lacks inclusive democratic structures. Although political parties constitute youth leagues, major policy decisions are made by the party leadership without involvement of the youth wings. The youth perform administrative duties, manage online platforms, conduct campaigns as well as provide militant security or counteract militant attacks. Despite their lack of campaign resources, a number of youth between the ages of 24 and 30 years won the nomination ticket for elective positions. This trend can be partly attributed to the devolution system. Devolution means decentralization of power, resources and representation at the local level. This system has contributed to bridging the gap between citizens and their leaders.
