The proliferation of e‑government adoption in developing nations is anticipated to radically progress governance and transform government‑to‑citizen interactions and general administrative operations. More so, the benefits and level of e‑government adoption in the public sector have been echoed world over; but remains subdued in the context of developing nations. This study investigates the effect of effort expectancy, price value, service quality, optimism bias and behavioural intention on citizens’ decisions to use e‑government systems in Zimbabwe. Informed by the extended Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT2) as a theoretical lens, a research model for this study was adapted and tested using quantitative data collected from a survey of 489 respondents in Zimbabwe. Using confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation modelling, the proposed model was validated, thus, the major contribution of this research. Findings of this study may be of value in policy formulation and restructuring by practitioners on e‑government matters. Thus, the results shade a light to some of the key drivers and inhibitors of e‑government adoption in developing nations. Despite achieving its aim, this study has its limitations which constitute the future research direction
