This study brings into focus “Analysis of Involvement of People with Disability in Development Policy-Making and Implementations: A Case of Dar-es-Salaam”. The analysis seeks to answer major research objective which was to investigate dynamics and patterns of involvement of People with Disability in development policy–making process and implementation. Mixed research design which triangulates qualitative and quantitative research from population sample of 138 People with disabilities and 12 representatives from various institutions was employed to answer research questions. Primary data was managed through the use of 18 face-to-face interviews, 3 focused group discussion (FGDs) as well as 150 questionnaires (Structured Open and Close Ended). Secondary data which consist of published and unpublished materials was visited to enrich the study. Research findings demonstrated diverging sets of opinion regarding the subject of “involvement in development policy making process”. On one hand study finds higher level of ignorance among people with disabilities which is reflected through historical legacies and more importantly on the other hand are the socio-structural arrangements which instigate social stigmatization and systemic deprivations. Major implication observed is that People with Disabilities want the main consideration for leadership, advocacy and decision-making be the capacity to manage and influence social change in a way that improves their ability and that of their stakeholders to participate and be empowered
