After its inception in Britain in the 1 770s, the system has attracted international attention and more applicable in democratically flowing economies. This thesis attempted to analyze the element of Local council management and its effect on service delivery in sectors like health and education. The study therefore managed to come up with various results as provided for in the questionnaires by the respondents. The study was based on the

following objectives (1) to determine the level of Local council management in the area under study (2) to determine the level of service delivery and (3) to find whether there is a relationship between Local council management and service delivery. The study was based on the Systems Theory presented by Peter Senge (1994) which reveals that the performance of front-line

employees is influenced by human resources and finance policies coupled with other skills and developments. A descriptive survey design was employed in the study which descried the different variables in the study. A research sample size of 81 was used selected using a random sampling technique.
