Batshu Calls for Efficiency

| May 4, 2015

Minister of Labour and Home Affairs, Mr Edwin Batshu, has implored his ministry’s staff to be efficient, responsible and obedient as they go about performing their daily duties.

Speaking during a staff meeting in Mochudi on Tuesday (April 28), Minister Batshu reminded the employees that they had a duty to serve Batswana with humility, respect and care.

He said his ministry was responsible for people-based services such as, among others, the issuing of Omang, passports, and birth certificates, as such efficiency was critical because people were encumbered without such documents.

The minister further said he was aware of the pitiable conditions of service under which his 2242 workforce worked as such he promised them that such issues would be addressed without delay for them to perform fully.

Mr Batshu cautioned them against late coming, saying they should rather come prepared for work to perform their duties and responsibilities without delay, adding that their responsibilities were sensitive and temptations were rife hence they should guard against corrupt practices and bribery which might destroy their future due to possible job losses.

He asked them to serve Batswana without partiality and respect customers, adding that he was proud of them because they had done so well so far they should also share resources to enhance service delivery.

Earlier, Civil and National Registration District officer Ms Boikhutso Shawe appealed to the minister that there was a shortage of resources, especially office accommodation and stationery she also enquired about the promised integrated plot for offices and staff houses to which Mr Batshu said the project was shelved due to lack of funds he promised them that the project would be given priority as soon as there was financial recovery.
