Acting Secretary to the Cabinet Patrick Kangwa says there is need for efficiency and effectiveness in the way government programmes are implemented.

Mr. Kangwa said the current fiscal situation remains challenging as evidenced by the resource constraints that have been experienced in the various institutions.

The Acting Secretary to the Cabinet said this during the Permanent Secretaries Meeting on the Public Investment Management System 2020 planning and budgeting roadmap and administrative matters in the public service.

“I am confident that if we put our heads together, given the expertise in this gathering, we should be able to find long lasting solutions to address the country’s fiscal challenges “, he said.

He stated that the focus of going forward will be unlocking revenue generating capacities and continued rationalization of expenditure to avoid wastage of limited resources.

Mr. Kangwa explained that this will require collective efforts and responsibility from everybody.

He added that an efficient and effective public service is key to drive the development agenda of the country.

Mr. Kangwa further said government has put in place administrative procedures that are designed to facilitate effective coordination and efficient operations of the public service.

He called upon all PSs to adhere to administrative procedures in the manner they manage the affairs in the ministries, provinces and spending agencies whether in urban or rural areas at all times.

  1. The Minister has failed to garner enough courage to tell the nation that there’s no money. It’ll get worse as the Euro Bonds reach maturity time. We will dance chikokoshi. PF has bankrupted the treasury and Margaret has no formula to resuscitate the economy

    • We’ve been telling PF00Ls that no country in the world has ever developed through debt. Now the chickens have come home to roost. It’s payback time. All our taxes are going to debt service leaving nothing for salaries, medicine & meal allowances.

      Eurobond is around the corner yet there is no action plan on how to repay it. Govt is now even failing to pay Chinese contractors even though China gave them the dollars.
      All the people who vote/rig for PF need to be locked up in Chainama for 10 years. Only a mentally ill person can vote/rig for PF after surviving on 1 meal per day or not being paid for 2 months.

  2. I voted for PF and will do so again in 2021 because HH is not presidential material as he is too childish and greedy.

  3. These dander heads were told time and time again not to over borrow, but corruption and luck of knowledge coupled with dullness in the PFoools leadership has brought the country to its knees. These people are dull starting with the ka drunk who pees himself when drunk…… utter useless
