Democracy is the most suitable form of government and that it has seen many countries perform better through service provision to its citizens and thus improving their livelihood. Devolution of power can address the main challenges of underdevelopment in any government. In Kenya, the case is similar, there are 48 devolved governments and Mombasa County is one of them. This paper looks at secondary literature on the effects of devolution on the performance of an organization a case of Mombasa County. A desk analysis design was used to determine the effects of devolution on the performance of an organization. It was evident that devolution of powers, finances leads to greater performance of an organization. Employee’s training, motivation and availability of funds in devolved governance improves the performance leading to provision of quality and better services to citizens.
