Condados do Quénia

Os condados do Quénia são unidades geográficas previstas na Constitução do Quénia aprovada em 2010.[1] Os poderes desta instância foram definidos nos artigos 191 e 192, e também no "County Governments Act" de 2012. Cada condado possui uma vaga no Senado do Quénia[2] e na Assembléia Nacional do Quénia[3]. Existem 47 condados no país, sendo que suas divisas são baseadas nos antigos 47 Distritos do Quénia. Na reorganização das subdivisões administrativas quenianas, cada condado possui um comissionário que o governa.[4] Os condados estão divididos em subcondados do Quénia e nos distritos eleitorais do Quénia.
