Kenya has had some form of Local Government since 1902 (Mboga H, 2009) though these have evolved over time. The governance of Urban Areas and Cities in Kenya has been through the 175 Local Authorities established by the Local Government Act Cap 265 of the Laws of Kenya. The Local Authorities are categorized as city council, municipal councils, county councils and town councils. The Local Authorities work through committees of elected and nominated councillors who formulate policies and plan activities that help communities engage in socioeconomic and political responsibilities in their locality. Community participation is made possible through the Local Authority Service Delivery Action Plan (LASDAP) meetings.
