Civil servants banned from taking part in politics

We are aimed at fostering a corrupt-free environment in the public service- Integrity Committee

Information and Broadcasting Services Permanent Secretary Amos Malupenga has urged civil servants not to engage in active politics during and after the August polls.

Mr. Malupenga says civil servants must remain neutral and continue to implement government policies.

Speaking during the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Services Labour Day award giving ceremony today, Mr. Malupenga said the ministry is also facilitating the review of the IBA Act to bring it in tandem with current trends.

He said the ministry of information is a frontline office for government and the country hence all workers are expected to exhibit high levels of integrity and competence.

Mr. Malupenga said the ministry has also facilitated a number of national issues which include the COVID-19 pandemic.

He said a number of radio and television programmes to sensitise the public on COVID-19 have been broadcast.
