CHALLENGES FACING KENYA PRISONS IN IMPLEMENTING REFORM STRATEGIES

The purpose of this study was to find out the challenges facing Kenya Prisons in implementing
reform strategies.
The investigation was anchored on the state of the overcrowding in the Country’s prisons, the
critical strategy implementation factors i.e. organizational culture, organizational structure,
information systems, reward system, resources and capacity, and the leadership and
management. The study targeted prison’s top management team which bears prime responsibility
and accountability to initiate and drive the organization’s strategic planning process. Five out of
the six intended respondent representing 83% were accessed and interviewed.
The study found out that strategy implementation in the Prisons service is faced by various
challenges such as lack of commitment from the top management, lack of good communication,
poor resources allocation and poor organizational structures. Further, other challenges observed
were lack of funds, lack of training of the personnel involved in strategy implementation and
finally lack of proper skills in change management.
