Saint Ignatius Parish Priest Father  Chilinda  has urged civil  servants  to be  slaves of the  people in society in order to  develop the  country.

Fr. Chilinda said civil servants should diligently discharge their duties in society to serve the needs of the people rather than putting their   self-interest first.

He disclosed this development during a Mass which took place at St Ignatius Catholic Church in Lusaka today.


Fr. Chilinda observed that some civil servants do not want to carry responsibilities that have no monetary gains a situation he said has contributed to poor service delivery in Zambia.

He said civil servants should sacrifice themselves for the betterment of the Zambian people if the country was to develop.

He explained that Ministers should minister what people are lacking in society as it was the definition of their status in the community.

Fr. Chilinda has however advised   civil servants to emulate God who sacrificed   his life for others and became a good shepherd to followers.
