In this report, Idasa questions why citizen satisfaction levels are declining sharply when access to basic services like water, electricity, housing, etc has remained more or less the same over the past four years, and even improved marginally in some cases.

A survey by African democracy institute, Idasa, shows growing dissatisfaction among South African citizens with local government performance, with only one in ten citizens satisfied with the quality of service delivery provided by their district and municipal councils. This is a dramatic decline from Idasa’s previous survey conducted in 2006 which showed four in ten citizens were still satisfied with service delivery by their local government.
