 Abstract

Globally, devolution has been associated with efficiency, the expectation that the devolved functions to the lowest feasible levels of decision making will optimize information flows and reduce transactional costs. A decision to devolve therefore is often based on the failure of central government to deliver, such as in revenue collection or in service delivery. Kenya’s rebirth as a first republic in 1963 has been characterized by episodes of political events which have critically affected the socio-economic and political performance of the country. The happenings climaxed to the much published 2007/8 election violence which was largely seen as anti-climax of cumulative governance failures. These failures are attributable to the quality of governance, which depend largely on institutions. The purpose of this study was to establish the influence of social equity on enhancing democratic governance. The study adopted descriptive and correlation research design. All the forty-seven (47) counties in Kenya were targeted, with five officers per counties forming the sample frame. Regression models was used to examine the influence of the social equity on democratic governance in Kenya.The results revealed that there was a positive relationship between social equity and democratic governance. The study recommends the application of Social equity since it has a positive effect on democratic governance. Social equity improves government leadership and thus enhancing political morality. Government need to emphasize on social equity preparedness in terms of knowledge, skills, and institutional competence so as to restore and boost a mood of confidence, which would motivate people to follow the government lead. Social equity is desired to overcome the complex challenges constantly emerging and confronting governments. The mastery of field and institutional memory in governance issues is a crucial ingredient to democratic governance.
