Abstract
Local government authorities and their staff around the world experienced enormous changes over the past half-century. However, motivating local government authorities’ staff has been a complex process to the extent that some workers have opted to leave the organization due to the fact that they are not motivated enough. Nevertheless, Kinondoni Municipal Council is characterized by increased labour turnover and cases where graduates are even turning down employment offers. The purpose of the study was to examine the role of administrative leadership on enhancing staff motivation in local government authorities in Tanzania. The study adopted a descriptive research design, covering a sample of 90 respondents drawn from a target population of 120 employees and administrative officers of Kinondoni Municipal Council. Questionnaires and interviews were used in collecting data which was analysed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. Under inferential statistics, multiple linear regression analysis was performed to establish the relationship between dependent and independent variables. The study found that the influence of all the predictors of staff motivation were statistically significant. Further, leader’s knowledge was found to have a positive coefficient in the MLR model; indicative of a significant impact on employee motivation. It can be concluded that all the predictor variables significantly influence staff motivation in local government authorities. Likewise, since the local government authorities are homogenous across the country. Therefore, all the independent variables have a significant influence on motivation among council workers. Based on the findings, the study recommends that leaders in local authorities should undergo strategic training to create conducive motivating environment for employees. Further, they should improve their leadership style and knowledge, and provide a better working environment and have a clear organizational structure in their administrative leadership to improve staff motivation.
