Central Province Permanent Secretary Bernard Chomba has warned civil servants in the province to desist from stealing public resources.

And Mr. Chomba has given a one-week ultimatum to all teachers that have deserted their schools in the province to return or face removal from the payroll.

He disclosed that some civil servants benefited from government programs such as the Farmer Input Support Program (FISP) meant for the vulnerable when they were ineligible.

Addressing civil servants in Kapiri Mposhi Mr. Chomba warned that disciplinary action will be taken against civil servants mismanaging government resources.

Over 150 civil servants were found to have been benefiting from FISP in Kapiri Mposhi district.

And Mr. Chomba noted that the absence of teachers and other civil servants especially from rural areas had created an artificial shortage of human resource and denied the general public of government services.

He challenged civil servants who were not interested to work in rural areas to resign so that government can engage other people who are on the employment waiting list.

  1. Warning public servants of theft will not work.

    Even in our very own homes, if the parents are drunkards, the children will often end up as drunks.

    If our politicians are thieves, civil servants will feel free to steal as well.

  2. The MMD under RB encouraged civil servants to enroll for FISP, beneficiaries included ZNS officers. So it’s not a new story. Ni fertilizer ya nyoko?

  3. Has the Central Province PS forgotten the “ubomba mwibala” slogan? When politicians stop stealing civil servants will also stop

  4. Civil servants are the ones who do most of the stealing. Just go and see the houses civil servants have built in IBEX Meanwood and you will cry. I think we need to do lifestyle audits of our civil servants.

  5. So a PS has the capacity to go against the PF “ubomba mwibala” motto?

    I think the PS is right. He should now turn to politicians and deliver the same message.

  6. Find the owner of the 48 houses first and then after that you can talk to civil servants. You must have morals before you advise others to be morally upright.

  8. Very weak reactions as usual – they are in it together. To ask people to ‘desist’ from doing something merely means you asking them not to do it. No indication of any further sanctions if they don’t or institution of robust proper measures to prevent the same. Lame, lame, lame.
