Description The Constitution of Kenya, 2010 promotes public participation at all levels of governance. This participation is only possible when the public is educated on issues affecting their lives and how to influence the relevant decision-makers of such issues. Civic education for example, informs community members of government development plans and their contribution to ensure the implementation of the plan is successful. Moreover, civic education helps citizens challenge the necessity or legitimacy of specific government policies and actions. Citizens can better contribute to the development of their country when they know how their government works and how issues important to them.
