The telecommunications sector in the country has grown exponentially since it was liberalized back in 1999. This was achieved through firstly, the Telecommunications and Postal Sector Policy Statement of February 1997, which was subsequently followed by the enactment of the Kenya Information and Communications Act, 1998 – more commonly referred to as KICA. The policy statement outlined the government’s acknowledgement of the important input that the information and communications sector could make to the economic development of the country.

The Protocol sets a framework for adoption of a single regional currency and establishment of an independent East African Central Bank, whose mandate is to ensure price stability, by 2024.

Kenyans know that the budget is an important policy tool for the government and the manner in which it is spent and accounted for a good pointer to both the quality and quantity of services that government can provide. Public expenditure in Kenya is governed by the constitutional provisions and supported by subordinate statutes and regulations. Article 229 (1) of the constitution of Kenya not only establishes the office of the Auditor General while article 229 (4) states the duties of the office and the scope of public bodies that are subject to an audit. This is important because it situates the work of the Office of the Auditor general within the constitution, confirming that performance of the role is a constitutional requirement.

The 2014/15 county budget process was plagued by many challenges, but most counties managed to produce Fiscal Strategy Papers for the first time, and many based their budgets in part on these papers. Moreover, as required by the Public Finance Management Act 2012, many counties shifted to programme-based budgeting this year. As counties finalize their budgets, it is time to start analyzing them. In order to help citizens and organizations at county level engage with their budgets, we have revised and expanded our “16 Key Questions” tool from last year to include 20 questions. This was motivated particularly by a need to provide additional guidance when reading programme-based budgets (PBB), which are very different from the traditional line-item budgets Kenyans are used to.
