Abstract
In this paper, I discuss governance, service delivery and justice as they have been debated in African cities, examining neoliberal, materialist, and post-structuralist approaches in the literature. I highlight how good governance and social justice concerns play out on the ground in servicedelivery in several settings, and then in a longer case study on Zanzibar. Ultimately, I am suggesting that we may need to change the map of discussions about governance in urban studies toward nuanced empirical
analysis.
