This analysis was drawn from the GI Hub's InfraCompass tool. The case study reflects on how change in Kenya's governance acted as a trigger to make it a stronger private infrastructure marlet. Kenya established a new Constitution, which secured the independence of the judiciary and formally separated the three powers of the executive, legislature and judiciary. The new Constitution also supported efforts to reduce corruption, with the creation of an independent Ethics Commission to be overseen by the Attorney General.
