About Narok-West Constituency
The Constituencies Development Fund was created by the Constituencies Development Fund Act, 2003 with the primary objective of addressing poverty at grassroots level by dedicating a minimum of 2.5% of the Government ordinary revenue to grassroots development and the reduction of poverty. The fund is managed by the Constituencies Development Fund Board (CDFB)
In January 2013, the CDF Act 2003 (as amended in 2007) was repealed and replaced with CDF Act 2013 that is aligned to the constitution of Kenya 2010. Since inception, CDF has experienced only one transitional period, in run to the 2007 general election. This is the second transition we are transacting after the dispensation of the new constitution 2010 and 4th March, 2013 hotly contested elections.
The enactment of the CDF Act 2013 was mainly aimed to ensure that the law governing CDF is aligned to the Constitution of Kenya 2010, specifically in compliance with the principles of:
1. Transparency and accountability,
2. Separation of powers; and
3. Participation of the people.
4. The new law was also aimed to align the operations of the Fund to the new devolved government structure.
