Local Government Reform- the MSJ’s position
The establishment of a single Ministry to facilitate local government affairs- the Ministry of Local Government and Community Development.
The role of this Ministry will be to function as an interface between central and local government, as well as monitoring local government bodies to ensure that they carry out their duties and functions within the law. The merging of Local Government and Community Development makes sense since local government is about community development. This will also reduce the number of Cabinet positions; it should go without saying that for a country our size, we have far too many cabinet ministers.
