It should be acknowledged that the Interim Independent Boundaries Review Commission (IIBRC) did the first review of boundaries.Forward The legal framework for elections requires objective drawing of electoral unit boundaries to achieve the principle of equal weight to each vote. To the greatest degree. Thus. in addressing the issues arising out of the first review:a) Use as its primary reference material. Further. IEBC is mandated to ‗resolve all issues arising from the first review relating to the delimitation of boundaries of constituencies and wards and publish its final report within a period of four months of the date of its appointment. the Constitution stipulates the criteria and procedures that need to be applied in the delimitation of boundaries and which notably shall be undertaken at intervals of not less than eight years and not more than twelve years. Chairman Indeed Article 89(1) of the Constitution of Kenya 2010 states clearly the number of constituencies that are supposed to be in place . and b) Use as its secondary reference material the report of the Parliamentary committee on the report of the former Boundaries Commission. IIBRC did its work and submitted its report to the Parliamentary Committee on Justice and Legal Affairs (JLA) which prepared its report and submitted to Parliament for adoption. the report of the former boundaries commission on the first review as adopted by Parliament. iv . this principle is aimed at ensuring effective representation and a translation of the will of the electorate into a representative government. the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has been mandated to carry out boundary delimitation of constituencies and wards.maximum of two hundred and ninety (290). It should be noted that the ideal international standards for delimitation is the equality of voting power for each vote so as to provide effective representation. Some of the issues cited included:     The determination of boundaries on the basis of three types of population quotas instead of one. This has to be completed at least twelve months before a general election. But this does not extend into the first review of the boundaries of constituency and wards. EBS. Ahmed Isaack Hassan. Notably. The description of boundaries based on wards or sub-locations. The use of regions and provinces as units of analysis (yet not provided in the Constitution). The treatment of Cities and urban areas in a similar way (definition of cities not agreed on). It is predetermined that the Commission shall. there were certain issues underscored in the JLA Report and in the discussions by Parliament and the public. It is therefore worth noting that pursuant to the provisions made in the Constitution of Kenya 2010. According to the Fifth Schedule of the IEBC Act 2011. boundary delimitation by its very nature is intended to produce the result of effective representation.

   Inconsistency in the division of constituencies where some with large population were not split yet others with less population were split. I therefore urge fellow Kenyans to read and understand the Preliminary Report in order to effectively engage in the process. in line with the IEBC Act. objectivity and patriotism in presentations anticipated towards the process of resolving issues arising from the first review. and That there was no public participation. the Commission has prepared this Preliminary Report outlining the proposed delimitation of constituencies and wards and specific geographical and demographic details and hereby avail it to the general public for a period of twenty-one days and invite representations from the public on the proposals hereto. It is indeed a step closer towards ensuring that the fundamental principle of the equality of the vote is attained. Similarly. it is important to note that any review of constituency boundaries is political in nature and is attached to highly competitive and emotive political issues. We must recognize that achieving the ideal and optimum population quota for our electoral units is not an instant achievement. accuracy. While recognizing the provisions of the Constitution to redefine boundaries to accommodate other interests in the electoral sphere. Thus. This means that it requires clarity and clear criteria and procedure commensurate to the electoral dynamics of the country. The creation or alteration of boundaries without taking into account geographical features and community interests. Consequently. The First Review and the exercise of addressing issues arising thereof is a process towards addressing gross disparities in the voting populations of different electoral units. EBS CHAIRMAN . There is need for transparency. The public presentations and recommendations will be reviewed within fourteen days after receipt and the Commission will submit a revised Report to Parliament for deliberation. ……………………………… Ahmed Issack Hassan. it requires that a middle ground be struck to achieve a win-win-situation. v . the Commission will consider the resolutions of Parliament and prepare a Final Report for publication in the Kenya Gazette.

Some of the issues cited included: (i) The determination of boundaries on the basis of three types of population quotas instead of one. the proposals presented in the Report elicited several reactions from county to county. IIBRC formulated a checklist of documents and materials. The public hearings promoted advocacy.

(iv) The description of boundaries based on wards or sub-locations. IIBRC developed a Report “Delimitation of Constituencies and Recommendations on Local Authority Electoral Units and Administrative Boundaries for Districts and other Units”. This was like a tool that both facilitated consultation on its mandate and for gathering and compiling relevant information from the general public on matters of concern. civic education and receiving public views on issues related to its mandate.1 General Views on the IIBRC Report The delimitation process and criteria adopted by IIBRC has been subjected to debate with remarks pitted against the proposed constituencies. A Report from the Parliamentary Departmental Committee on Justice and Legal Affairs that was presented to parliament notably underscored several issues.

Emerging Issues (Acording to the JLA Report)

Subukia & Rongai  There was a mix-up in the transfer of divisions, locations and sub-location and  Minority group interests were not considered (Ogiek) Naivasha  Community of interest, Historical, Economical and cultural ties not considered.  The area is home to diverse people groups, and would benefit from better representation.  Population quota; has high population of 226,056 and by the quota qualifies for 2 extra conctituencies instead of one as proposed. Molo  Re-drawing of boundaries: - one sub-location, Piape, was to be moved from Rongai to Njoro constituency but this was not done. Kuresoi  Community of interest, Historical, Economical and cultural Ties/Minorities/Marginalization not taken into consideration.  The minority group & marginalized in the area, the Ogiek, will be further marginalized as the new constituency, Njoro is bigger than the mother constituency, Molo, thus offering less chance of representation of this people.

According to the Report of the Task Force on Devolved Government (TFDG). as applicable. 2010). Article 89(3) of the Constitution of Kenya.450 is proposed1.0 Introduction The criteria for delimitation of wards is provided for in Article 89 (5) and (6) of the Constitution of Kenya. In this respect. names and boundaries of wards periodically. 2010 provides that the IEBC shall review the number. each of the 290 constituencies will have a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 wards. the Commission determined the total number of wards into which the country shall be divided.CHAPTER V PROPOSALS ON DELIMTATIONS OF COUNTY ASSEMBLYWARDS 5. Volume I 176 . Article 89(12) of the Constitution defines ―population quota‖ by dividing the number of inhabitants of Kenya with the number of constituencies or wards. The number of wards was determined using the number of constituencies in each County with the primary consideration for equity in representation in the 1 Final Report of the Taskforce on Devolved Government. an upper limit of 1. the Commission is given the following mandate as regards completion of the first review (a) re-distribution of such wards or administrative units in the affected constituencies as may be appropriate. urban areas and sparsely populated areas or to new population figures. The Act requires that the Commission shoulr resolve all issues arising from the IIBRC review. Article 89(6) provides that the number of inhabitants of a constituency or Ward may be greater or lesser than the population quota by a margin of not more than— (a) forty per cent for cities and sparsely populated areas.

County. The TFDG in effect proposed to reduce Ward representatives from the current 3.628 has been arrived at by dividing the total national population by the total proposed number of wards. The computation is based on a formula which serves to maintain equality between wards and the number of electors.097 = 26. the population quota for the Ward which is 26.450 The IEBC obtained the number of wards applicable to each constituency by computing the proportion of the population of the constituency in relation to the total population of the County and multiplying by the number of wards which the County is entitled to.138 was determined by the Constitution of Kenya (Total national population divided by the total number of constituencies).000. For the constituency population quota. a figure of 133. This is because counties were created by the Constitution without regard to their populations. Total Population of Constituency Total Population of each County X Number of wards allocated each County Applying the above formula ensures that even the smallest County has the required members of the County Assembly to perform its function. the IEBC has been guided by the constitutional provision that the number of inhabitants of a constituency or Ward may be greater or lesser than the population quota by a margin of not more than 40 per cent for cities and sparsely populated areas and 30 per cent for the other areas. This approach takes cognisance of the inherent inequities in the populations of various counties and the imbalances in each constituency.610. National Population as at 2009 Census =38.628 Total Number of Wards 1.465 including nominated councillors to about 2. In computing the number of wards nationally. 177 . The IEBC considers this national limit plausible as it enables a County to effectively fulfil its representation and oversight functions. The table below presents the proposed determination of wards by IEBC based on the above approach and deviation from the quota. In a similar vein. The approach therefore achieves equity of representation within the County and is therefore preferred by the IEBC. The population quota for the Ward obtained using the formula below is consistent with the population quota for the constituency as provided for under the Section 27(1)(b) of the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution of Kenya. The proposed county wards are annexed.

Various boundary concerns were brought to the attention of the IIBRC as it emerged that Kenyans were aware of the historical injustices in the delimitation of electoral and administrative boundaries of Kenya.0 Introduction The creation of electoral units in Kenya started with the creation of 117 Constituencies in 1963. the IIBRC was mandated to determine the names and boundaries of wards against the criteria provided under the Constitution 3also to generally apply in the delimitation of county wards.2 With the promulgation of the Constitution of Kenya 2010. 6. Notably. followed by Constituency reviews in 1966 which then culminated in the creation of 210 Constituencies. 6.1 Methodology applied by the IIBRC In reviewing constituency and ward boundaries.4It is documented that the IIBRC held eight provincial visits and a total 106 public hearings whereof 20. the authority and criteria for delimitation of local authority electoral areas has been the same at that of Constituencies.CHAPTER VI BOUNDARY DELIMITATION PROPOSALS & WAYFORWARD 6. 2 3 As provided under the Local Government Act Article 89(5) 4 Article 89(7) of the Constitution 178 . These criteria guided all the boundary reviews by the ECK and generally remained in place until the Constitutional Amendment of 29th December 2011 under which the criteria that guided the work of the IIBRC were enacted. In consideration of the criteria under Article 89 of the constitution. public submissions and petitions should be presented within three key limits.726 attended the public hearings.2 Applicable Framework Many of the submissions received offered suggestions on delimitation with emphasis on constitutional criterion. The Independence Constitution of Kenya provided key criteria to guide the delimitation process. All stakeholders were requested to present to the Commission oral submissions or written submissions either as individuals or groups and the public invited to give presentations through scheduled public hearings in existing constituencies. The objective of the public consultations was to collect views regarding electoral and administrative boundaries. the Constitution of Kenya 2010 requires the Commission to consult all interested parties.

As such areas of economic interest to the community and the existence of a favorable economic infrastructure (schools. Field visits by the IIBRC were organized to sensitise the general public and stakeholders on the mandate and responsibility of the IEBC and providing Kenyans and opportunity to contribute their views. 6. Collection. All submissions should focus thereof on access to these services and infrastructure and the Commission in retrospect shall take into account views of the communities affected. Analysis and presentation of data Information and data collected having been interpreted and legally analyzed informs the delimitation exercise. market centers). b) Geographical Features: For purposes of delimitation focus is on patterns of human settlement. natural and water resources and national security. economic and cultural conflicts existing in various parts of the country. Literature review undertaken not only covers the relevant documents cited under the IEBC Act but also covers maps and archival data on boundaries and boundary delimitation in Kenya.Also inclusive of equities in resource allocation. political. This will also offer immediate feedback on emerging issues on suggestions for boundary variations. This involves collection and analysis of population data based on the constitutional provisions. Field Visits Public hearings provide a tool for gathering and compiling relevant information from the general public on matters of concern in delimitation.3 Work Plan The workplan for the delimitation exercise is developed on the basis of the mandate provided under the fifth schedule to the IEBC Act 2011. presence of harmonious co-existence between communities and political stability that also protects the rights of minorities and marginalized communities posit as boundary concerns. i.

geographical features and means of communication.These too were strictly based on the mandate of the IIBRC and Constitutional criteria for delimitation. which strategy may be further supplemented by interactive media briefings. And to achieve optimum results. it is expected. that the general public will be equipped with the requisite knowledge on the process of delimitation to enable them submit their views against the constitutional provisions. Analysis of data collected The IIBRC analysed data against the constitutional provisions using analytical tools-ICT and GIS The most appropriate media for communication will be identified and employed by the Commission to reach the stakeholders and general public. Stakeholder. consultation will focus on key principles in the public and private sector. iv. 180 . Data from field visits and public hearings is to be analysed in relation to constituency and community groupings on community interest. through civic education.
