Decentralization as a means to ensure provision of basic social services in the Democratic Republic of Congo

  • S Makgetlaneng


The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has been in a continuous state of crisis in the strategic area of the provision of basic social services to its citizens. It has been characterized by the structural need for a strategy, vision and programme of action to change socio-political and economic relations characterised by the accumulation of wealth and privileges by its rulers in the face of massive socio-economic problems faced by the Congolese people. The successive rulers have not been committed to the resolution of these problems through the provision of basic social services.
