Abstract


This paper discusses the place of indigenous languages in the development of County Governments in Kenya. Eight counties were selected for this study; they included Meru, Bomet, Kericho, Nakuru, Baringo, Uasin Gishu, Nandi and Bungoma. The paper also highlights a model of language use as a tool of development with a close reference to the said counties. Finally, the strengths and the weaknesses of using indigenous languages in the development of selected County Governments are discussed.
