1. The decentralization program without a strong leadership and cooperation between the ministries is mainly a waste of time and money, and only there to feed corruption.
2. Small steps are important. Once the decentralization framework is given, and the reforms have started, the program slowly spurs movements of influence within the government. Officials and staff request more accountability from the national government as they are building capacity and opening their mind to new concepts such as good governance and social accountability.
3. The transfer of corruption is inevitable from the central government to the local administrations in a situation where strong leadership and good governance do not exist. However, as local citizens learn more about the public service they are entitled to receive, overtime they will request more social accountability from the government.
