Western Province Permanent Secretary, Augustine Seyuba has implored all civil servants in Kaoma district to desist from engaging themselves in plundering government resources.

Mr. Seyuba said civil servants should be tempted to stealing government resources in the period when the country is preparing to elect a new president.

He said this when he addressed heads of government departments and other stakeholders in Kaoma district today.

Mr. Seyuba earlier observed a minute of silence in honour of late President Michael Sata who died in London on 28th October this year and was buried in Lusaka last week on Tuesday.

He said in this transition period, all civil servants should continue working normally so that government projects that were started by late President Sata can continue.

Mr. Seyuba also requested the security wings in the district, especially police officers, to diligently and urgently handle all matters pertaining to abuse of government resources.

He said government workers should work tirelessly in keeping the spirit that the late President Sata left so that all the projects in the district were completed in order to uplift the living standards of the poor people in Kaoma.

Mr. Seyuba, who is touring the district to inspect government developmental projects, said the Katunda-Lukulu-Watopa and Kaoma-Kasempa roads will be completed as a sign of maintaining the legacy left by the late President Sata.

The two road projects are under the Link Zambia 8,000.

He has however commended the security wings in the district for maintaining peace during and after the mourning period of the late President.

And speaking earlier, Kaoma District Commissioner, Joster Manjolo requested the office of the Permanent Secretary to facilitate the installation of communication towers in Kalumwange and Chitwa areas along Kaoma-Kasempa road.

Mr. Manjolo complained that the newly installed communication tower, which was constructed by the Zambia Information and Communications Technology Authority (ZICTA) in Luambuwa ward in Mangango constituency, stopped working soon after it was erected in September this year.
