This is an important area of discussion given the rapid changes on one hand the expectations on the other! Obviously with 47 counties, I foresee disappointment in most areas. Previouly, economic activities were centred around the 8 provincial headquarters and some district HQ. How will the government manage to ensure economic flows are realised at the new counties? We still need a strong central government,especially at the initial years - but do we have adequate resource powers at respective counties to manage the affairs? Is the a resource needs assement in place to ensure skilled implementors are available in each county? Do we still have a clear policy document highlighting the functional boundaries of central government and counties - or come 2013, all will start pointing fingers at each other due to lack of clarity in roles and responsibilities? Lastly, what type of identities are respective counties expected to take?
