Information and Media Minister warns civil servant against sabotaging government efforts

Share

Information and Media Minister Chushi Kasanda has said that government will not tolerate poor work culture by civil servants in the delivery of services to the public.

Ms. Kasanda said that civil servants need to acquaint themselves with the United Party for National Development (UPND) Manifesto and vision for them to contribute towards effective service delivery.

Speaking when she addressed Health Personnel at Liteta Hospital, Ms. Kasanda warned against sabotaging government efforts of providing quality health care to the people.

She said government is aware of the challenges faced by health personnel and that this should not be used as an excuse for poor service delivery.
Ms. Kasanda who is also Chief Government Spokesperson said government is in receipt of complaints of poor attitude towards patients by health personnel at the hospital and that this will not be tolerated.

And Acting Chisamba District Health Director Isabel Meleki said there is need for government to construct a new district hospital to cater for the growing population.

Dr. Meleki said the equipment at the hospital is obsolete making it difficult for health personnel to conduct operations.

She added that the hospital was meant to be a leprosy centre and the infrastructure and equipment was designed for such purposes.

  2. Unfortunately my young sister your party planted this unpatriotic habit while in Opposition. You may just end up sacking the entire civil service…. according to Sean Tembo so far 1, 300 have lost their jobs.

  3. Change all hospital managers and move doctors and nurses back into the wards. Bring in professional business managers to run hospitals. At the same time revise the pay structure in the Ministry of Health. There is no reason why a super consultant like the famous UTH Neurosurgeon should not earn more than the Permanent Secretary and Minister. Senior nurses with an excellent track record too, can earn more than a PS. The poor remuneration in government hospitals is drawing doctors away from the government towards the private hospitals. Consultants are rarely in station but away in private consultations, leaving junior doctors alone to kill people.

  4. Look at the f00I tarino , he misled his fellow upnd supporters into voting this govt, and then today he want to say eff all. You chi dog.

    Leave my close friend kasanda alone. She is doing well. The only mistake she made is joining a f00Iish party like upnd. You are upset because she denied you.

  5. Ba Chief Govt spokesman stop interfering in other portfolios. You are a spokesman not a vice president Leave the minister of health to deal with health issues. He will report to the president who will brief you to then turn on your loudspeaker

  7. This kind of practice was encouraged by UPND in opposition, and now you are reaping what you sowed. I don’t support it but learn to undo your own doing in a methodical way.
