The population comprised of 10,005 household heads, Deputy county commissioner, 4 Assistant County Commissioners, 11 chiefs in Saku Sub County and the members of security committee. Samples of 175 household heads were selected using Slovin’s formula. All the DCC, 4ACCs, 11 chiefs and members of security committee were included in the sample since it was relatively small population. Semi-structured questionnaires were administered to all the participants. Descriptive analysis, in the form of mean, median, percentages, and standard deviation was used for quantitative data. Regression analysis and inferential statistics was conducted. Thematic analysis was used to analysis qualitative data emanating from open-ended questions. Permission and authorizations from Kenyatta University, NACOSTI, County Commissioner, County Director of Education in Marsabit County, including other relevant gate-keepers was sort. All ethical consideration in handling the respondents and the resultant data was adhered to.
