The government is charged with the responsibility to provide financial support to local councils across the country to undertake development projects in their communities.

Local council is a form of decentralization for development purposes in different communities.

As a way of fulfilling their mandate, the government through the ministry of finance has made payments to local councils for all developed functions from January to June 2022.

This has been made known to the public through a press statement from the ministry of finance, which says it’s part of the government’s commitment to transparency and accountability strategy.
