This was a regional workshop which attracted about 75 participants from the EAC, SADC,

ECOWAS, and the EU. The participants were drawn from different sectors and institutions

including the civil society, government, Members of the East African Legislative Assembly,

media practitioners, academia, farmer movements, workers, development partners and the

youth.

The main aim of the conference was to provide a snapshot of the progress so far in the EAC-

EU EPA, including the outstanding issues, positions of the EU, EAC, Kenya and the rest of

the stakeholders including the CSOs, farmers, private sector and trade unions. The

conference also provided an opportunity to the participants to get an analysis of the EU-

ECOWAS EPA and EU-SADC EPA. This was important for purposes of experience sharing,

learning and offering strategic interventions with an Africa perspective.

Since some of these regions are already in the implementation stage of EPA, they provided

invaluable lessons to the EAC by sharing their challenges and the lessons learnt so far in the implementation process.

This manual breaks down various definitions of devolution in a bid to demystify this form of governance. The various roles and structure of leadership are defined in order to enable citizens to understand available avenues for participation and civic engagement.

The ‘Human Rights Based Approach in devolved governance’ is the aspirational terminology that refers to the duty bearer and right holder. This classifies certain human rights and explains the underpinning principles. The Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) is highlighted herein to explore guiding principles and key issues that link human rights to development. The discussion on governance institutions seeks to enhance users’ understanding on the roles mandated to respective public institutions. It provides users with a catalogue of institutions through which they can channel their grievances for redress.

      Global trade is worldwide business that involves making and collecting payments for transactions in goods and services, and transporting them to interested markets. International trade allows us to expand our markets for both goods and services that otherwise may not have been available to us. It is the reason you can pick between a Japanese, German or American car. Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) are a form of trade contract between the European Union (EU) and the African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries that mainly comprises developing nations4. The main objective of the EPA is to support and facilitate trade between the two blocks and to eradicate poverty

      Ukweli wa kwamba wengi wa wananchi hawajui mipaka ya uchaguzi au kazi ya wale wanaowachagua kuchukua ofisiinaonyesha kwamba
      i) wapiga kura hawaambatanishi uchaguzi na upatikanaji wa haki kwa njia ya upokeaji wa huduma
      ; ii) wapiga kura hawadhani kwamba ushuru wanaolipa unastahili kwa wao kudai kiwango fulani cha utendaji, ambayo ina maana kwamba wapiga kura wamekubali utendakazi usioridhisha kutoka kwa wale waliowachagua. Hii inapaswa kuwa sababu ya kushtusha; zaidi ya hivyo, wakati mtu anapouliza swali “Kama si matarajio ya ubora na utoaji wa huduma kwa wakati, na utendaji kazi wa viongozi waliochaguliwa au kwa wapiga kura kupata thamani ya fedha zao (Kodi) , inayowafanya Wakenya kupiga kura katika uchaguzi mkuu, je nini?” Kwa hakika hii ni sehemu inayohitaji masomo zaidi.

      Nini hasa mamlaka, majukumu, wajibu au kazi ya wabunge (MPs) na maafisa wa serikali waliochaguliwa kuhudumu ili wapate malipo na faida wanazopata, na hata kufikiri wao wanahitaji zaidi?

      Muhtasari huu unatoa maelezo mafupi ya majukumu mbalimbali ya maafisa wa serikali waliochaguliwa wanapaswa kufanya.

      Muhtasari huu umetengezwa kukabiliana na masomo5 ambayo yalibainisha haja ya kujenga uwezo wa wabunge kuelewa na kutekeleza bora majukumu yao. Muhtasari huu pia unatambua haki ya na wajibu wa ushiriki wa raia ambao sasa unatambuliwa katika Katiba ya Kenya, 2010.
