The study used a cross-sectional research design and the target population was 39 respondents. The main data collection method for the study was questionnaires. The study concluded that there was minimal stakeholder participation at all levels of the CDF projects’ cycle management with only a cross section of the stakeholders consulted at the conception stage of the projects. The research revealed that a high percentage of the projects, were not completed as per the initial set plans with a significant number becoming white elephant projects in the process. Politics played a big role in the projects implemented in the constituencies and politicians use the projects for purposes of achieving political millage. The study recommended that Constituency Development Committees should ensure that interests of men and women, girls and boys and the community at large are adopted when making decisions related to the CDF including prioritization of projects and selection of proposals.
