We’ve heard you Mr President. The problem with our civil service is following up and enforcing rules, regulations and, like the subject matter, directives. For example, does it require the whole Minister of Tourism to chase renewal of business? What were the PS, Departmental Head, the Ministry’s Finance man etc etc doing?
