The public service in Popondetta, Northern Province, is in for a major shakeup.
Newly appointed Acting Administrator, Robert Dademo, told public servants to perform or ship out.
Mr. Dademo says complacency will not be the ball game anymore.
Robert Dademo is not new to the public service. He has served in the army for over 30 years.
His appointment as the Acting Provincial Administrator for Northern Province is a wakeup call for the public servants.
The public servants are the key drivers of the province, but their lack of performance has adversely affected the province, more than it has helped it.
He says, a major restructure will be carried out to improve the public service. Public servants will also be under strict code of conduct, to which they are required to comply.
Punctuality will be reinforced with gates to be locked at 8:30am, and those public servants turning up late will be sent home.
These new changes are expected to shake up the public service in the province.
Mr. Dademo plans to carry on from where his predecessor, Owen Awaita, has left. Mr. Awaita was replaced after being in the post for the past five years.
He says, the province has struggled with cash flow problems, resulting in its lack of progress.
He appealed to Dademo to ensure funds for the province are released by Treasury to speed up work on major infrastructure projects in the province.
Mr. Dademo will be acting in the position until such time the National Executive Council decides otherwise.
