Public Administration in Zimbabwe a Framework Approach

Gideon Zhou

Abstract


Public administration is the bedrock of every government; the central instrument through which national policies and programs are implemented. However, its effectiveness largely depends on how its frameworks are constituted. This article examines the frameworks of public administration in Zimbabwe-interrogating the extent to which they provide enabling contexts for best practices of public administration. Research findings point to frameworks that are stressed at both the legal and institutional level. Thirty years down the line, a stable constitutional framework is yet to be established. While the institutional framework is fairly comprehensive and generally comparable with regional trends, its operational framework is largely emaciated in terms of autonomy and resource base. The framework of public administration needs reconfiguration and strengthening at both the legal and institutional level.
