Challenges to Urban Democratic Governance in Zimbabwe

Jephias Mapuva



Challenges to Urban Democratic Governance in Zimbabwe is a result of a study on urban governance in Zimbabwe focusing particularly on local councils and how special interest councillors are appointed by the Minister responsible for local government. The book establishes the extent to which the practice of appointing special interest councillors in terms of section 4 A of the Zimbabwe Urban Councils’ Act (2008) promotes, or hinders, democratic urban governance. The text investigates various different legislative instruments in order to present a normative framework on the best practices in democratic urban governance.
