The Institute for Security Studies (ISS) published on 24 March a commentary titled "Kenyan Political Leadership: The More Things Change . . ." by Sebastian Gatimu and David Wamugo Wagacha, both with ISS Nairobi.
The authors concluded that the post-2010 political leadership in Kenya has been unable to adapt to the devolved system of governance, which calls for transparency and accountability. Instead, leaders continue to engage in a way that is combative and confrontational, punctuated with negative political posturing.
