dc.description.abstract This chapter looks at local governance in the context of the national integrity system. Local councils provide local services and incur financial expenses within the statutory framework set by the central government. The chapter first looks at the legal and policy framework to ascertain whether it facilitates transparency, accountability and integrity in the local government system. Secondly, the accountability of local governance is examined. Thirdly, the relationship between local government finance and local integrity system is explored. Lastly, anti-corruption agencies are examined to assess their effectiveness in fighting corruption at local government level. The chapter concludes that local government is not actively involved in anti-corruption activities and makes some key recommendations. en_US
