"If you want to kill a dog, you start by giving it a bad name."

Abstract
This paper takes a closer look at civil society-state and global relations in the hybrid regime of
Kenya, through Critical Discourse Analysis developed by Norman Fairclough. The paper looks
closer at diverse sets of text produced by various actors such as the Kenyan state, Global
institutions and local civil society actors. The analysis concludes that the hybrid regime of
Kenya has consolidated power towards civil society through discursive and institutional means.
Furthermore, it concludes that local civil society circumvents local hegemony by connecting to
global patterns of institutional and bureaucratic language.
