Who we are & What we do!

Our Vision: Strengthened devolution through legislation, oversight and representation.

The County Assemblies Forum (CAF) was formed in 2013, expanding the membership of its predecessor, the County Assemblies Speakers’ Forum (CASF), to include members of County Assemblies. CAF is a coordinating body of the forty-seven (47) County Assemblies established by the Constitution of Kenya, 2010 under Article 176. CAF is registered as a Society under the Societies Act, Laws of Kenya. The mandate of CAF is to support the County Assemblies perform their three core functions: law making, oversight and representation.

Devolution of the Legislative Function

The devolution of the legislative function to County Assemblies has meant enriched jurisprudence especially in legislation touching on unique local issues that hither to may have escaped the national legislative process. This has also necessitated improvement of enforcement and compliance functions not only to ensure order but also as a source of the much-needed revenue for the County Governments. Additionally, Counties are having to continually compare notes as far as legislation is concerned to ensure mutual learning and eliminate legal contradictions across jurisdictions.
