DC advises public workers, calls for teamwork
Kasempa, February, 26, ZANIS —— Kasempa District Commissioner Victor Kayikesi has advised public workers not to perceive his office as political point as such would hinder national development.
Mr Kayikesi said his office is there to work for the people of Kasempa by fostering development through coordinating with other government ministries.
He observed that public officers have a tendency of avoiding the office of the District Commissioner and as a result certain areas are lagging behind because some individual do not want to change to suit the new government.
Mr Kayikesi said this yesterday during the official opening of the District Development Coordinating Committee (DDCC) and expressed disappointment that some officers do not take seriously meetings that are intended to review the district’s performance towards development.
The district held it first quarter DDCC meeting yesterday and only recorded a few government department in attendance while others were absent without apologies.
The District Commissioner further called for all to respect his office as it represents the office of the President in the district.
The visibly annoyed Mr Kayikesi noted that heads of department are also expected to submit reports to his office in order to enhance effective transmission which in most cases takes longer due to the bureaucracy involved.
“Most reports that have been submitted by your departments have not received attention because of the bureaucracy involved,” he said.
He said it is easier for him to lobby on behalf of departments because his office is better placed with fewer channels of communications to follow.
He has since called for departments to work as a team in order to bring development in the district.
