de-concentration, decentralisation

In many countries on the continent we see an accumulation of political and financial power in a small center in the capital city. In this book we see a ten year history of de-concentration and decentralisation.

I do not know how the situation is at the present in Angola. When I think about the situation in Kenya, where is an attempt is being made at decentralisation, I see an increase in confusion, an increase in clashes of authority, an increase in ‘ now it is my time to eat’, an increase of overseas travel.
