dc.description.abstract The study examined the relationship between central and local government in Tanzania particularly how it affects recruitment of staff in LGAS in Kinondoni municipal council. Specifically, the study examined and identified the roles and position of Local Government Authorities (LGAs) in the recruitment function, how do councils (LGAs) implement in their roles in the recruitment function and the challenges encountered by Local Government Authorities (LGAs) in implementing their roles in the recruitment function. A qualitative research approach coupled with some elements of quantitative techniques was deployed in this research undertaking that made use of a case study design. The sample of this study included 100 participants. The necessary data were collected using questionnaires and interviews. Data were analyzed using percentages and frequency distribution tables and narrations. Basing on the findings, the study concludes that LGA perform recruitment function in the respect manner as to the directive of central government like conducting orientation, promotion and considering retirement issues in the area of LGA jurisdiction. From the findings, it can be concluded that some components of the recruitment function are strongly performed by LGAs, other than advertising, short listing, selection and calling for interview for new employees the work which is done by Public Service Recruitment Secretariat (PSRS). The study concludes that many LGAs in Tanzania are encountered by lack of full autonomy, interference from the central government. Thus, the study recommends that the government should ensure that administrative autonomy should be fully exercised to the council as to the scenario of decentralization by devolution (D by D) aspect of giving full mandate to LGAs as one of full arm of the government in Tanzania. If not the case is minimal interference from central government to local councils must be observed. The contract of check and balance from each other between the central government and Local Government Authorities should be supportive, trustful and be more freedom to each other. en_US
