Thyolo DC touts reforms for improving service delivery

THYOLO, District Commissioner for Thyolo, Justin Kathumba has described the public service reforms as a step towards enhancing delivery of quality public services since most Civil Servants have responded positively to the interventions in the district.

Kathumba said the reforms have just reminded those in authority in the district to stick to their core business and in the process improving service delivery.

It is quite pleasing that each office at least by 7:30am starts work implying that people are coming to office in time and knock off at 4:30pm as stipulated in the reforms. You cannot come to Thyolo District Council and remain unattended to for an hour, he challenged.

Kathumba said the team at the council was determined that is would like to serve people in the district to the best of their ability in a bid to improve the socio � economic profile.

I am pleased with my team and people from Thyolo should know that the district council team is ready and eager to deliver on its mandate, the DC assured.

Kathumba, therefore, pointed out that the improved service delivery would facilitate smooth implementation of quality development program in the district.

He observed that although most of the things were already in place the reforms have consolidated efforts by members of the civil service, noting that people should expect the best from Thyolo civil service.

We are not comparing the present with the past because most of the things that are part of the reforms were already there – what matters most was the improvement and delivery of high quality services to the public.

President Professor Peter Mutharika established the Public Service Reform Commission headed by the Vice President Dr. Saulos Chilima to provide leadership in the implementation of public reforms which would result in the provision of dynamic and high quality service to the public.
