The meeting titled “Ensuring Active Citizens participation in Local Government Governance” was attended by representatives of the local government administration, representatives of civil societies, and media groups.
Interactions between the local government officials and citizens wove around the active participation of citizens, civil societies, and persons with disabilities (PWD) in governance, provision of birth, death, and marriage registrars for certification, covering the shortage of water supply in the community, provision of necessary social amenities including feeder roads, better market, and support for education within the community.
