 Report people masquerading to be connected to the President for self benefit-South PS

Southern Province Permanent Secretary (PS), Mwangala Liomba has called on Government Officials in Monze  to be committed to their duties.

Mr Liomba told officials to ignore those who purport to have connections with the Head of State.

And the PS has encouraged the district heads of departments that such individuals should be reported to his office.

He urged Contractors and the Strengthening Climate Resilience In The Kafue Sub-Basin (SCRIKA) District implementation team to complete and hand over the projects to the community as scheduled without any further delay.

Speaking when he met the District SCRIKA Implementation Team in the presence of the council Chairperson and the District Commissioner, Mr Liomba urged the team to report anyone who goes to their offices using the name of the President with intent to gain advantage over others as well as threaten workers into giving them things.

The PS’s remarks comes in the wake of some contractors failure to complete projects and a relaxed supervision by the District Implementation team.

He explained that those in-charge of resources risk being seen as saboteurs of government development policies when the money which is sent to the District is not seen to be producing results.

He told officials in the district to be mindful that they were just custodians of the resources of the people hence the need to ensure that resources are prudently utilized.

“We must all know and appreciate that we are but just custodians, we are merely stewards of resources on behalf of the people of Monze. We are holding these resources on behalf of Monze people and Monze people expect the government to deliver on it’s promises and those to deliver on behalf of government is you and me,” he said.

He has called on the Council Chairperson and the District Commissioner to take up leadership and take charge of the development projects in the district so as to ensure that resources are channeled towards what is budgeted for.

He said as fathers of the district it was in their best interest to ensure that development trickled down to the needy in society especially that government was willing to distribute resources to all corners of the country.
