GITEGA, February 19th (ABP) – The Minister of Civil Service, Labor and Employment, Mr. Venuste Muyabaga, made a strong appeal to all State civil servants to scrupulously respect the Civil Service regulations to move the country towards the vision of an emerging Burundi in 2040 and developed Burundi in 2060. This was stated at the end of an inspection tour that he made in certain State services located in Gitega, the political capital of Burundi.

Mr. Muyabaga released a bitter observation regarding the respect of service hours, after a tour he made at the Intermediate Court, at the Public Prosecutor’s Office, at the Court of Appeal, at the General Prosecutor’s Office at the Court of Appeal, at the Provincial Health Office, at the General Directorate of Agriculture, and at the Burundi Authority for Hydraulics and Seasoning in Rural Areas (AHAMR). He deplored a widespread and obvious delay in the start time of work. As an indication, he specified, only five people had arrived on time (7:30 a.m.) at the Gitega Intermediate Court, including two judges and three clerks, out of a staff of 23 people.

At the General Directorate of Agriculture, out of a staff of 50 employees, five to six people arrived on time.

This unpleasant situation lasted until 9 a.m., regretted Mr. Muyabaga, noting however that he discovered that AHAMR uses an electronic system to better control its staff. This system creates visibility on arrival or departure time, or even absence from service. He recommended that other State services use this good example to restore order in public work.
