The Kingdom of Swaziland provides for a set of legislative provisions and commitments for both the leadership and citizenry of the countyr to firmly hold on to the Principles of Good Governance and Democracy. Like the Constitution, the Decentralisation Policy enjoyed critical mass participation of the public and private sectors as well as the ordinary citizen in its generation and finalization. This has given the policy the national dimension required of a public policy that directly impacts on the lives of the public especially in the pursuit of national development goals and objectives as articulated in the National Development Strategy.

The implementation of the policy will be mainstreamed within the greater ambit of the Tinkhundla System of government and governance. To this end, this policy neatly dove tails in the fundamental principles of the Tinkhundla System as the latter is firmly rooted in grassroots civic participation in enhancing “even and balanced development of all regions and in particular improving the conditions of life in the rural and urban areas, and generally redressing any imbalance in development between the rural and urban areas”. The Decentralisation Policy therefore shall inform and guide the Kingdom of Swaziland public policy development and implementation.
