Hi Wolfgag, I read with interest you blog on decentralization. I fully agree that decentralization or devolution as it is popularly known is not a panacea I however still think that a heavily centralized government has been the bane of corruption, nepotism and inefficiency. In my own view it has been responsible for the overpricing of Nairobi at the expense of other cities in Kenya. Decentralization has its own challenges, some of which you have rightly identified but I think if properly embraced and harnessed , it would be a lot better than the current top-heavy "Nairocentric" system we have.
