Lusaka Province Permanent Secretary Stardy Mwale says civil servants in the province need to be loyal to the government of the day.
Mr. Mwale said this is because any disloyalty among civil servants in the province will hamper government’s various developmental projects and their respective implimentations.
ZANIS reports that the Permanent Secretary said this during a luncheon held at provincial administration today to celebrate the victory and subsequent inauguration of President Edgar Lungu.
Now that elections are over, there is need to put the past behind and forge ahead and develop the province for the betterment of the country, he said.
Mr. Mwale further urged civil servants to always be punctual, impartial, respect one another, be accountable and observe confidentiality as they discharge their duties.
He further called for hard for work hard and avoid tribalism in the discharge of their duties but unite as one Zambia one nation.
Meanwhile, Mr Mwale said his administration is committed and dedicated to monitor and supervise the implementation of developmental projects.
He said for this reason the province has recorded a number of successes among them being the construction of thirty seven health posts ,implementation of social cash transfer, construction of chief’s palaces.
Mr. Mwale however expressed concern over the security in the province following the recent cases where houses, lodges and shops among other properties have been burnt down.
He has since called on the police to be vigilant to avoid further loss of property and appealed to members of the public to cooperate with the police as they investigate such matters.
