I’ll mop out non-performers-Lungu


President Edgar Lungu has warned that he will mop out civil servants that are not performing.

The President is concerned with the poor work culture among some civil servants in the country, saying he will take action at the recommendation of Permanent Secretaries.

He says the attitude of being busy with Facebook posting by Civil Servants at the expense of work can only be ended by Permanent Secretaries.

President Lungu said this at State House when he swore in Permanent Secretaries in the Ministry of Chiefs and Traditional Affairs, Southern Province and Zambia’s Ambassador to Kenya.

He has told newly sworn in Chiefs and Traditional Affairs Permanent Secretary Michael Pwete to ensure that he embrace Chiefs as cardinal players in the development of the country.

The President has also directed newly appointed Southern Province Permanent Secretary Sibanze Simuchoba to follow up on projects in the province.

Meanwhile, President Lungu has directed newly appointed High Commissioner to Kenya Brenda Muntemba to improve trade relations with that country.

And Ms. Muntemba has told ZNBC News in an interview that she will focus on creating business linkages among business persons in the two countries.-ZNBC
