Abstract: The study sought to examine local governance and peace building in Mogadishu, Somalia. The study objectives were; to examine the relationship between transparency in local governance and peace building, to examine the relationship between accountability in local governance and peace building and to examine the relationship between political will in local governance and peace building in Mogadishu, Somalia. The study was based on peacebuilding theory developed by Schellenberg H.J in 1996. Effectively making a successful peacebuilding theory requires a keen distinction between what the goals of a peacebuilding theory are, and the peacebuilding process itself. While some peacebuilding designs are heavily theoretical with a focus on the international system, others focus too closely on what peacebuilding actors can actually do, but experience problems with repeating previous failures. The study was based on a correlational research. The researcher used the design because it allowed the researcher to accumulate more facts than experiments on the study. The study population was 260 respondents and these included; 25 selected Members of Parliament from Mogadishu, 115 civil society organizations officials, 20 Mogadishu top administrators and 100 local community members. The sample size of the population in this study consisted of 158 respondents and was calculated using the Sloven’s formula. Data was collected from primary and secondary sources using questionnaires and interviews. The study findings revealed that the average mean for the relationship between transparency in local governance and peace building in Mogadishu, Somalia was 3.39 which is equivalent to very high. This implies that there is a close relationship between transparency in local governance and peace building. The study concluded that local authorities should recognize what are their favorite components in a peace process, however ought to be capable to draw close the many complexities of politics at the country wide level. The study recommended that local governance leaders need to be able to implement the broad terms of peace accords to which they are a party.
