Civil servants involved in politics to be fired-Chakaba

General News Civil servants involved in politics to be fired-Chakaba

Northern Province Permanent Secretary Royd Chakaba has warned government workers in the region to desist from engaging in active politics ahead of the August 12 general elections.

Speaking when he addressed civil servants in Mpulungu District, Mr. Chakaba said his office will not hesitate to take action against any erring officer.

He challenged those with political ambitions to resign from the civil service and join politics.

“I have come at a critical time, we are in any election year. I wouldn’t wish a civil servant being cited for partisan politics because once we receive a report, we will deal with that person” warned Mr. Chakaba

Mr. Chakaba said it would be unfortunate for public service workers to be cited for taking part in partisan politics hence the need for them to refrain.

He noted that civil servants have an obligation to support and implement policies of the government of the day.

And Mpulungu District Commissioner Dennis Sikazwe said the district administration will remain focused on ensuring that government programmes are implemented by the responsible departments accordingly.

Mr. Sikazwe added that his office will continue to engage with the Provincial Administration for guidance on various issues.

“With your vision and guidance sir, we believe that Mpulungu and the rest of the province will continue to develop. We are ready to execute government functions and programmes as expected,” Said Mr Sikazwe.

  2. And yet those are the same folks rewarded with high positions if the push for PF to win.Bwana you have serious conflicts of interests.

  3. What does it even mean to be in active politics? It is like that tired joke about religion mixing with politics or playing politics in sport. Some of these restrictions are unconstitutional abale wanga.

  4. Franciso Macias Nguema was a very paranoid man and one who would relinquish power to no one. He stayed in a hut in his ancestral village and kept all of the national treasury under his bed or in suitcases in his hut. He was also distrusting of anyone who was educated or appeared to be educated (wearing spectacles for example). So he killed or exiled anyone who appeared to be educated and it became very dangerous for anyone to have any books or written papers in their possession.

    Francisco Macias Nguema hoarded the money of the state, never taking it out of his suitcases. Government officials and the national guard often went great lengths without seeing any form of payment but they dared not ask for it. In 1979 members of the National Guard, including Macias Nguema’s own brother…

  6. What he means is that civil servants who are supporting the opposition will be dealt with. All we know is that if the PF chairman calls the civil servant in charge of government pool cars to release them for PF campaigns without GRZ number plates, he will have to comply. That kind of involvement in politics is ok? If a civil servant is ordered to ferry people to a PF rally, it is ok. This is why I say that we are ruled by humanoids (human like beings).
