Support for the House Live Broadcast (HLB) Project Kenya National Assembly (2008-2009)

Legislative Strengthening

The objective of the this USAID-funded project was to facilitate steps towards production of a live feed for the television and radio broadcast of the Kenyan National Assembly (KNA), as well as digital production of its Hansard. These are important elements in the Assembly leadership's efforts to inform citizens about the work of the parliament.

The ultimate aim of these efforts is to solidify the public's understanding of and confidence in democratic governance in the wake of the violence that erupted following the disputed December 2007 general election.

Key achievements of this project included:

  • Renovation of parliamentary facilities to enable production
  • Design and establishment of a Parliamentary Broadcast Unit
  • Technical advice on revisions to the Parliament's standing orders
  • Implementation of media and public outreach programs
  • Launch of live broadcasts
