Secretary to the Cabinet Roland Msiska has challenged the Public Service Commission (PSC) to expedite its functions to enhance public service delivery.
Dr Msiska said the PSC has demonstrated over the years that it can be a competent administrator that can produce excellent results.
The Secretary to the Cabinet said this yesterday when he officiated at the 2014 Public Service Commission Labour Day awards held at Melsim Lodge in Lusaka.
On May 1, the Zambian labour force across the country celebrated Labour Day under the theme ‘’creating decent work and promoting social economic justice for national development’’.
Dr Msiska said the dealings of the commission with regard to recruitments, confirmations and promotions should be done swiftly in order to sustain a motivated efficient and effective workforce.
He urged the commission to emulate the eagle’s attributes in performing functions by soaring above challenges and adversity in order to achieve its mandate.
Dr Msiska implored Zambians to celebrate the country’s golden jubilee independence anniversary by reflecting on the past achievements and galvanise renewed hope to spur the country to robust national development.
He observed that the country has a very strong identity and purpose that needs to be nurtured and embedded in every citizen.
Dr Msiska urged Zambians to embrace and remain steadfast to the vision of the founding fathers of creating a unified singular state that would be an example to the world because of its gender equality, work ethics and ability to rise above challenges among others.
He urged public service workers to change their dominant mindset of being insensitive to government property which they wantonly destroy and begin to appreciate as their own.
