Delegation and Decentralization in Abdicating Authority and Upholding Ubuntu Philosophy in Social Welfare Organisations: A Critical and Theoretical Perspectives

The purpose concerning this paper is to improve on the critics of delegation and decomposition in abducting authority and supporting Ubuntu philosophy in Social Welfare Organisations in Zimbabwe. In abdicating authority and maintaining Ubuntu Philosophy, the systematic disposal of authority by top administration in social welfare organisations remains a quarrelsome issue. Delegating responsibility while abdicating respect and human nobility is a critical issue in social welfare organisations, as few community-located organisations fail to consider the hereditary worth of laborers before undertaking projects and appointing tasks. In governmental parastatals participatory democratic principles are not effectively executed when delegating duties, the top administration restricts itself to main decisions fields like policy making, coordination and control. The lower level managers have enough resolution making authority and support to present innovativeness in their work. Data collection forms that were used contained observations, focus group considerations and interviews. The targeted culture included worldwide, statutory and non-statutory organisations in Zimbabwe. The study decided that delegation and decentralisation in social work organisations are criticised as a result of local beurocracy and inequalities that live in organisations. Respondents stated that decentralisation is a meaningful hindrance in supporting organisational values and ethics. Some entrepreneurs in social welfare organisations do not learn the basic need for basic respect and benevolence for other laborers, such as sharing in charge responsibility.
