(24) After the enactment of LSGA, for the past several years, many donors and development partners have been providing technical and financial support to strengthen local self-governing institutions.
initiatives were undertaken, specially after the enactment of LSGA. Decentralization Implementation Monitoring Committee (DIMC) was formed under the chair of the Prime Minister.
After the enactment of LSGA, there were various programmes in operation ranging from training/orientation of elected/nominated women representatives, institutional management capacity building, establishment and management of information base, account keeping and others at local government levels.
This explains why the bureaucracy and centralised politics resist anything which approaches them in the implementation stage of a political decision, including the implementation of the Local Self-Governance Act (LSGA
), 1999 as a case in point.
