Kisumu County ICEDA continues to push for the passage of a Public Participation Bill in Kisumu County Assembly

Due to ICEDA’s influence there have been an increase in consultations between leaders and the public.  There have also been an increase in consultations between leaders and citizens on issues affecting them, particularly in county budget making.

As a result of ICEDA’s advocacy, there was a notable rise in citizen participation in the 2015/16 budget making process. ICEDA has also mobilized communities to write petitions to the County Assembly on issues affecting them such as insecurity. ICEDA also influenced the introduction of a Public Participation Bill in Kisumu County Assembly.

ICEDA now works with Ward Representatives, MCAs, CSOs[1] and County Executives.

ICEDA now looks into expanding the reach of its work across the Kisumu County, take on more advocacy issues, engage with more stakeholders and utilize more avenues of engaging with the public such as launching a local radio talk show.
