Minister Kaboyo warns civil servants against absenteeism
The state minister for Luwero-Rwenzori triangle, Alice Kaboyo has warned the civil servants against absenteeism.
Speaking during the government’s Baraza programme held in Ntungamo district at Rubaare town council on Thursday, the Minister noted that the absenteeism of government workers has contributed to the poor service delivery.
Kaboyo noted that there is a problem of unemployment in the country so those who act unprofessional should resign and those who are willing to work can take over.
Kaboyo also encouraged residents and leaders of Ntungamo to support government programmes irrespective of their ideological & political affiliations so that they can improve the lives of the people and develop the country.
“Parish Development Model (PDM) came to chase away poverty, please don’t spoil it with politics,” said Kaboyo.
The Minister also called upon the leaders to protect the environment by encouraging tree planting to mitigate the effects of climate change.
Sam Mucunguzi, the LCV chairperson Ntungamo district called up leaders to stop the habit of lamenting but rather table their issues in the council meetings whenever they sit for discussions.
Mucunguzi noted that lamentation among the leaders has led to poor service delivery.
The implementation of the Baraza Initiative or the Citizens’ Information Fora is spearheaded by Office of the Prime Minister to ensure that all policy issues are examined, revised and improved for easy service delivery in the districts.
