Government has appealed to the rural community to accept civil servants being deployed to their areas to enhance development and to desist from threatening to bewitch them.
Katete District Commissioner Joseph Makukula says it is sad to note that a number of civil servants are being threatened to be bewitched by some local people.
Mr. Makukula says it is sad that some newly deployed civil servants in Katete District were receiving witchcraft threats which is only deterring government’s development goals in the area.
ZANIS reports that District Commissioner said in an interview, that he has advised communities in the area to instead be happy and proud of the technocrats government was sending to them as it was for their benefit.
The District Commissioner, however, cautioned civil servants in the District to remember their purpose in the communities they serve and avoid stirring trouble.
He said government employs people to serve the communities adding that despite being educated the masters were the communities in which they operate to enhance the need to work in harmony at all times.
Government has been deploying trained civil servants to various districts, in accordance to its de-centralization policy of taking development to all corners of the country.
Meanwhile, Katete District Commissioner Joseph Makukula says government will soon be opening five clinics in the district.
Mr. Makukula says the clinics were constructed with the help of Constituency Development Funds (CDF) in Milanzi and Mkaika Constituencies.
The clinics scheduled to be opened are Mtipa, Kawaza, Magoba, Mzime and Lupando clinics, respectively.
Mr. Makukula explained that the District Health Office is currently undertaking distribution of equipment’s to the said clinics before opening.
