dc.description.abstractSince 1990’s after the disintegration of USSR due to Perestroika and Glasnost, the main emphasis in Africa was on vesting power into the hands of the people i.e. civil society. Now the civil society was expected to play an active role in the socio-economic and political aspects, specifically civil society organizations were referred to as the engine for the democratization process.
