oa Africa Journal of Public Sector Development and Governance - Analysis of government performance in service delivery in Africa and factors influencing results - research

Over the past three decades, most African countries have implemented both political and economic reforms towards greater democratisation and support for a free market system. Many African leaders competed in a multi-party environment to get elected into office, and those in office have often tried to improve their service delivery performance in order to reduce the levels of poverty that so often characterise the continent. However, studies on how well, or how poorly, African governments perform in delivering services to their citizens are limited. Much of the information on this important subject in Africa comes from isolated and varied case studies that focus on a single country, or even a specific city, town and/or village.
