The absence of appropriate public engagement, resource mobilization, project duration, and legal framework were commonly cited as the reasons for this disparity. There is a lot of outside influence on project selection and execution in Embakasi South constituency when it comes to national government constituency-funded projects. This is mainly because the public isn’t involved enough in examining possible illicit activity. The purpose of this study was to examine the variables that affect how well national government constituency-funded initiatives are carried out in Nairobi, Kenya. The particular goals are to ascertain the effect of resource mobilization on the execution of these projects in the Embakasi South Constituency. The theoretical framework for this study was anchored in project implementation theory, Stakeholder Theory, and resource-based theory. This study utilized a descriptive research design. The focus of observation was on 10 national government officials, comprising the Director of Education, Sub County Social Development Officer, Registrar of Persons, Youth Officer, Sub County Police Commander, Deputy County Commissioner, Assistant County Commissioner, Chief of Kwa Kwa Njenga, Chief of Imara Location, and Sub County Accountant. Additionally, the study involved 95 committee members, 59 beneficiary stakeholders, and the manager of NGCDF in Embakasi South Constituency. The study employed a stratified random sampling method to ensure each participant has an equal opportunity for inclusion. The study involved two types of data: primary data and secondary data, encompassing both qualitative and quantitative information. SPSS software was used for data collection, analysis, and coding. Tables were used to exhibit the analysed results, and a theme expression was used to describe the interview schedule. The findings indicated that there is positive significant association betweeninfluences of resource mobilization on implementation as shown by a correlation coefficient of 0.251 and a p-value of 0.047.. The researcher concluded that while there is a perception among respondents that the mere availability of resources might not impact project implementation, specific challenges related to the acquisition of physical resources are acknowledged. The study recommends that various institutions involved in decision making on CDF should develop and implement comprehensive strategies to enhance community engagement throughout all phases of project development, including identification, design, implementation, and project closure. The study recommends there is need for future researchers to determine effectiveness of monitoring and evaluation of both government and private sector projects in Kenya.
