13 The Statute aimed at securing and ensuring popular participation in decision-making, mobilising the masses for local economic development, fostering empowerment of the population in the political sphere, and eliminating dual structures at the local level (Lubanga, 1996). But despite these ambitions, it turned out to be very difficult to implement the provisions of the Statute (Republic of Uganda , 1990). A major reason was seen as the resistance of central ministries to devolve powers to the local level: ‘Recalcitrant ministries balk at the prospect of dispersal of resources to the field – ostensibly due to lack of infrastructure amenities and a supportive legal framework.
There are two main lines of accountability: civil servants should be accountable to elected representatives; and elected representatives should be accountable to the public. If there are mechanisms that form a credible threat to both local politicians and civil servants in the sense that they are punished for unresponsiveness and misbehaviour, they will have greater incentives to act in the population’s interests, encouraging participation and addressing demands. Hence, accountability promotes participation of the population and responsiveness of public officials, but participation is equally a precondition for accountability.

In the local government context, patrons are local politicians and clients are the local electorate. Patronage is then defined as the politically motivated distribution of favours, such as the special treatment of a particular geographic area in the provision of public goods and services, to certain groups of people, often of the patron’s own kin.
