CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION McMahon (1961, 15) suggested that the term decentralization, refers to the process of moving away from the centre. Manhood, (1993, 1) conceives decentralization as a concept that suggests the hope of cracking open the blockages of an innert central bureaucracy, curing Managerial constipation, giving more direct access for the people to the government to the people stimulation the whole nation to participate in national development plans. According to cheema (1983), decentralization refers to the transfer of planning, decision making or administrative authority from the central government to its field organizations, Local administrative units, semi-autonomous and parastatal organizations, local governments and non-governmental organizations. According to Apollo Nsibambi (1996), decentralization is a process by which power, political decision-making, financial and managerial are transferred from the centre to local governments giving them more autonomy and liberty to manage their local affairs within the framework of a unitary state. The above definitions suggest that decentralization is a broad term that cannot be easily pinned down. Despite this however, all definitions seem to agree that decentralization entails the transfer of certain powers (financial, legislative, decision making or planning) from the central governments to the lower governments.
