Local Native Councils (LNCs) in Kenya played a key role in development of education during the colonial period. Although they were set up as a ploy by the colonial administration to closely monitor African activities at local level, their educational implications were never foreseen. This paper attempts to give a glimpse of Kericho District Education Board which was one of the Institutions under Kericho LNC which shaped development of education in colonial Kenya through infrastructural development, allocation of bursaries, allocation of grants-in-aid and building grants and payment of teachers’ salaries using second world war bonus. Primary and secondary sources were consulted mainly archival documents from Kenya National Archives, Oral interviews and Journal articles
