PSs have become official tourists – Musokotwane

LIUWA MMD member of parliament Situmbeko Musokotwane says permanent secretaries in the country have become official tourists because of the constant reshuffles.

And Speaker of the National Assembly Dr Patrick Matibini has advised members of parliament to be mindful of their choice of words and debate within the acceptable bounds.

Meanwhile, Parliament has ratified the appointment of Dr Rowland Msiska as Secretary to the Cabinet.

Supporting the motion to ratify Dr Msiska as Secretary to the Cabinet on Wednesday, Dr Musokotwane said permanent secretaries had now become official tourists because they were not staying long in areas they are posted.

He said civil servants in the country were finding it difficult to take certain actions because they were uncertain of their future.

“This is not good for our country and this is the environment that this candidate is finding himself in. We ask for a good environment to be provided for this candidate.
