Nankhumwa: Warns civil servants ‘frustrating’ DPP

The government announced Christmas and New Year holiday from December 23 to January 3.

Minister of Local government Kondwani Nankhumwa, one of President Peter Mutharika’s elite inner circle told civil servants in his Mulanje Central Constituency that they would be fired if proved they were deliberately frustrating government programmes so that it fails.

He said he had information that some civil servants were frustrating President Mutharika administration’s programmes.

In the northern region, minister of Information Jappie Mhango asked security officers at Mzimba Admarc depot to treat clients humanely.

He said he received information that the security officers were manhandling women and children who were there to buy maize, saying the government would act if the situation did not improve.

However, management of Admarc said these were isolated cases caused by congestion at the depot.

Infact it is the DPP govt which is frustrating civil servants. We blindly put you in power but we will let you fall very soon. I still dont have my salary for december.

Dr Haswel P. Bandawe
It is expected that civil servants are professionals serving whichever Government is in power. I take it that there are job descriptions for each job and job requirements/qualifications/competences. There are programmes to be implemented and their time-line. In which case, supervisors from the Head of the Civil Service down, monitor and evaluate the implementation of set programmes. In a system like this there is no room for politicising civil service job. If there are non performers they have to be dealt with according to the conditions of service. There is no need to demoralise civil servants by injecting political allegiance… Read more »
