The purpose of the article is to investigate the influence of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) on governance and government legitimacy. Monitoring and evaluation could enhance governance and government legitimacy through a participative approach of including more stakeholders in service delivery. The absence of proper performance management systems and accountability mechanisms diminish the value of M&E initiatives. The article proposes that M&E audits be undertaken through a cost-benefit analysis to ascertain their value to improving performance management and service delivery. The article further proposes that the government undertake accountability reforms to ensure the demand and sustainability of the M&E systems. The article is of value to institutions and officials with oversight roles to ensure effective and efficient management of state resources for the compliance with the national, provincial and local government socioeconomic developmental mandates.
