Malawi School of Government to open for public servants

Government is set to open Malawi School of Government in a bid to enforce efficiency and stop the culture of theft of public money by civil servants and public officers.

Unlike sending civil servats to Mpemba Staff Development Institute (pictured), government will open its school

Professor Golden Silumba of Malawi Institute of Management (MIM) said MIM and Staff Institute Development at Mpemba are champions of the government school project.

“It’s part of the reforms. We want to make the civil service more efficient and effective,” said. Silumba.

He said a bill for the setting up of the school has already been drafted, saying once it is passed into law, the school will now be operational.

Silumba said the school will instill professionalism in civil servants for best public service delivery.

On the other hand, the school will enforce ethical standards among civil servants to stop the rampant theft and abuse of public money and resources by civil servants.

This is the first school of its kind in the country.

Govt school is a good idea but whether it can improve efficiency is another matter.

That’s a great idea, we need it as as close as yesterday.

I have serious doubts if the school will bring efficiency. First has there been a credible research to confirm that lack skills is the causes theft of public resources. Are the people caught or alleged to have stolen admitting that the did that because they were lacking. What the cabinet ministers that are alleged to me master thiefs. Will they be part of the civil to be reformed. More importantly is there political will and demonstrated action to end corruption. What the school will do is to impact knowledge and skills whether those attributes will be put in practice is… Read more »
