KOMENDA-EDINA-EGUAFO-ABREM MUNICIPAL ASSEMBLY

 SERVICE CHARTER

PREMABLE

Service delivery over the years in the Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS), Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) has often been criticized of lacking transparency and openness and also characterized by the cumbersome procedures. This, most often than not, lead to lack of trust and confidence in the system and the perception of civil servants being corrupt.

Owing to these, the Local Government Service has therefore embarked on a mission to improve the quality-of-service delivery in Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs), through simplifying processes, clarifying rules and procedures and setting time frames for prompt completion of tasks in order to render MMDAs more transparent to the public.

PURPOSE

This service charter has been developed to provide information on how the general public can benefit from services provided by the KEEA Municipal Assembly.
