PAWA254 Democracy and Governance

Democracy and Governance

Governance refers to systems, processes and mechanisms through which the state utilizes state power to  govern and/or rule its citizens and  maintain law and order.

Poor Governance is at the heart of all the issues PAWA seeks to change. At PAWA we believe in universal suffrage and the inherent right for all citizens to good governance which equates to; affordable housing, access to food, good infrastructure, livelihood development, quality education and a responsive Government.

A key reason for poor governance is the subversion of democracy meaning citizens lose the right to choose the leaders they want. PAWA, via its programmes, strives to mainstream good governance at all levels of Government whilst exposing and shining focus on poor governance practices for both individual and state action.
