Govt warns against poor work culture among civil servants
Kasempa, Feb 6, 2015, ZANIS— Government says it will not tolerate poor work culture by some with public service workers who are trying to frustrate its development efforts.
North-western province minister, Dawson Kafwaya says President Edgar Lungu is eager to see development is delivered to all the people countrywide.
Mr. Kafwaya says it was regrettable that some civil servants in the province were deliberately frustrating government’s development programmes by not executing their respective duties.
He said as such people out there are unable appreciate government efforts because they are not able to see the projects.
The minister, who is on a tour of the province inspecting developmental projects, said this when he paid a courtesy call on Kasempa district commissioner, Victor Kayekesi in Kasempa today.
He said President Lungu is interested in governance of national unity, hence appointed him to serve in his government despite coming from the opposition political part.
And Mr. Kayekesi has congratulated President Lungu for appointing Mr. Kafwaya from an opposition party to promote unity in the governance of the country.
Mr. Kayekesi has since appealed to the minister to intervene in the rampant illegal mining going on in the district.
He said there are over 100 mining companies in the district and therefore there is need for the ministry of mines and mineral development officers to visit the district and assess the mining entities in the district.
During his tour, Mr. Kafwaya is also meeting heads of government departments and encouraging them to serve the government of the day and desist from partisan politics which has the risk of compromising them in executing government duties.
