dc.description.abstractThis study focused on the challenges faced by Local Government in South Africa with specific reference to the “The lack of accountability and transparency in local government in South Africa”. Qualitative research methodology was used because it covers issues in great depth and detail and allows for the ability to interact with research subjects. The functioning of local governments in South Africa as engines of national development has been plagued with problems and imbalance related to the poor ethics, corruption, and maladministration of the local government machinery itself. The consequences are widespread corruption and distortions of government priorities; both of which undermine the ability of local governments to improve broad-based economic growth and social well-being of its residents or citizens. THE FINDINGS OF THE STUDY ARE:  With regards to the importance of developmental local government the findings revealed that developmental local government was important in that it had ensured effective service delivery by ensuring accountability and transparency.  With regards to the challenges facing developmental local government the study findings revealed that there were indeed challenges with regards to transparency and accountability. These challenges ranged from a lack of understanding of the way local government operates and political differences amongst political parties.en_ZA
