Moon Patience Magongo

The paper examines effectiveness of government support, citizen and civil society organizations involvement on budgetary participation at Local Government in Tanzania: A Case Study of Mtwara Mikindani Municipal. The study adopted a descriptive case study design, with a sample of 113 citizens including local 100 citizens randomly chose. The findings established that government support is ineffective, citizens are not participating due to unfulfilled promises and civil society involvement is lacking behind not fulfilling their role in participatory budgeting process. The study recommends to the government to deliberately adhere to stipulated laws governing participatory budgeting, LGAs financial collections should remain in their regions to be used for development funding, priority should be set for provision of civic education for citizens for productive involvement. Citizens should be empowered through information on budgeting issues to help them understand the process and they should be trained on how to plan through Opportunity and Obstacles for Development. Civil society should embrace the budgeting process and play their part on information sharing, training and empowerment and be involved in different meetings so as to advocate for policies and projects which favour citizens.
