Confidente Dr. Haufiku & team shud be applauded for this. Gone are the days when govt workers do private affairs from 08h00 to 17h00 and only to start gvt work after 5 and claim overtime.
Confidente I hope other ministries will follow suit and drastically cut on S&T
Darius Mofuka why don’t they also cut their ridiculous allowances?
Ahty Nestor Very good indeed that is why we say eat fast because you never know what the future holds for you… tough times are felt by everyone these years my dear.
Connie Owoses All civil servants must have a workload they must complete daily, weekly and monthly .That’s the only way it can be monitored and curbed.
Petersen Ampweya Well done Dr!! Other government departments don’t have ooo
Kandiwapa Shivute Performance agreements is the only way. How do you measure how competent an employee is? We focus too much on the finance involved forgetting that even if you cut you’re your employees (civil servants) are not competent … if it was a business, you are still running a loss.
Dave Gottlieb This is a good move which should also be rolled out to other ministries as well. There is still a lot that needs to be done at MoHSS, they should do away with fixed overtime for doctors. They need to work overtime if they want to be paid overtime. These are the cost cutting measures that we were waiting for.
Aino Kapandu not a bad idea, but i wish the way our ministers pressure the civil servant is the same way they deal with those greedy people who eat billions in the government offices , just because of one single selfish individual, the whole nation has to suffer…
Topdizzle Bigmack Mxm. Now people are overworked you call it progress when one nurse looks after 60 patients in the wards.
O’brien Hekandjo Well done Dr.
Elli Nuule Why not cut the high salary of the head of state and ministers instead of targeting those with low salaries like Police and nurses?
Fucs Fikameni Munageni Let us be reasonable about this, if 3 nurses go on leave who will fill their shift…..those shifts are worked on overtime bases. Who will suffer at the end of the day, will it not be the end users (patients)?
Hon-Dallas José Ya- Vàkos And we still broke, and again there is nothing special about that, you just recruit more nurses and rob people off their well-deserved overtime money and take all the credit, how is that an achievement,? We are obsessed with running public sectors like…
Hafeni Hafexx MOHSS Moving in the right direction!
Samuel Karigub This is really commendable in this case but in some M/A/O/I it’s worse cause big guns introduce restrictive measure but continue squandering resources like no men’s business.
Pieter Jacobs Well he did not cut on his expenditure to start off. He did not use the saving to upgrade clinics or buy new equipment. He did not use the savings to buy needed ambulances.
What did he do with the 180million? Yes it is not a lot of money in the hi-tech medical world. Let’s get the real figures on the table for discussion.
David Iigonda It is a recommendable move if the priority departments are proper priorities more especially where you have a shortage of personnel compare to the workload. But measures need to be in place control the budget.
Fefa Khoen-khoe Abaschie Let him start going to work with his own car; his allowances should be cut too
Sakeus Dama-dama The goverment must start training more nurses
Uwe Pockler Sounds good. But why so late when it was known as “unnecessary expenditure”?
Lydia Johannes please nurses claim overtime fairly. The reduction of overtime in the ministry was because the minister cut on employees who were doing nothing but yet claim overtime e.g. Hr, admin, cleaning, technical departments, nurses who work shifts claims overtime for working on Sundays, public holidays and night shifts. Nurses will be short forever even in UK that’s the song.
John Paul Omake to the Minister and his team…
