dc.description.abstract Political parties form part of the political institution of society, with irreplaceable roles to perform towards the development of any society. The Kenyan society is currently facing a number of critical challenges including poverty, disease and ignorance corruption, insecurity and negative ethnicity among others. These pose a great challenge to sustainable development in the country. It is against this background that the paper was conceived to investigate the role that political parties can play in addressing these challenges so as to pave way for sustainable national development and tap the country’s great potentials. The paper used the historical, critical and phenomenological methods. The findings indicate that political parties have a significant role towards national integration, stability and security. They can play an irreplaceable role in poverty eradication, war against corruption, civic education and mobilization. It can help in entrenching the principles of good governance and enhance the democratization process and policy formulation for the realization of sustainable national development. The output will benefit development planning, national cohesion and integration; and the fight against corruptionand insecurity among other socio-political and economic challenges currently plaguing the country thus impeding development. en_US
