President Edgar Lungu has put his ministers to task by announcing that those that do not successfully execute governments development agenda in their respective ministries will be axed. Delivering government’s development agenda for the next four years, President Lungu said he would like to see performance contracts for ministers just like permanent secretaries and the execution and development delivery of their ministry will let him know whether to keep them or not. He observed ministers equally needed to be made accountable. “I will be glad also if our ministers can have their contracts synchronised so we can know when to let them go. There is no way a minister can be superintendent of a ministry and holding you accountable without them being accountable to anything,” he said. “I do not know whether the President has a contract.., oh in 2021 you will be able to find out whether I have done it… The president is also answerable to some authority.” He announced that starting July he would be receiving the quarterly reports from ministers and institutions for the last quarter and hoped they would be in line with development outcomes of the plans. “Very shortly I will be receiving reports from the ministers on their performances. Quarterly and I am sure we will see how far we are going on this line. In line with all this all government ministries and institutions are expected to align their strategic plans to the smart Zambia agenda and the 7NDP. To enhance monitoring and evaluation of government programnes, I have already alluded to this,” President Lungu said. “All quarterly reports for ministries, provinces and institutions are expected to be in line with development outcomes of the plan.” The post Pres.
