  Story by Pamela Mate

The National Council Standing Committee on Urban and Rural Development held a briefing session with the Ministry of Education to gauge their implementation of the decentralization policy. The Education Ministry shared with the members present the challenges and progress made thus far. The decentralize process is said to be taking too long to come into full effect. The members called for the process to be implemented at all levels of government and for Regional Councils to be considered an integral part of the process as they are the eyes and ears of the regions. The members also called on harmonizing the Public Service Act and the Regional Council Act to address the communication gaps and break down in reporting lines often experienced between the central government and Regional Councils. On their part, the representatives from the Ministry of Education stressed the importance of ownership and accountability, noting that in as much as regions call for decentralization; capacity building is equally important and needs to be catered for to make the policy a reality.

The Education Ministry assured the gathering that they are working hard in decentralizing the activities of their Ministry and have made significant strides to this effect.
