Redcliff (New Ziana) – Senior Redcliff municipal staff have been made to sign performance contracts as part of government’s drive to ensure good service delivery by public institutions.
All heads of departments signed the contracts at a ceremony overseen by Redcliff mayor Clayton Masiyatsva.
The move follows similar performance contract signing by senior government officials, from cabinet ministers to permanent secretaries and ministry directors.
Masiyatsva hailed the government’s initiative, saying it would go a long way in ensuring good service delivery by munipalities, and helping achieve the national 2030 vision of an upper middle income economy.
Town clerk Gilson Chakauya called on the Redcliff municipal officials signing the contracts to always put the interest of the public first in discharging their responsibilities.
“His Excellency (President Emmerson Mnangagwa) emphasized that we as public officials should always put the interest of the people first and he also stressed the need for team work so as to achieve the set goals,” said Chakauya.
He also emphasized that non-performers will lose their jobs.
“Non-performers will definitely go under normal circumstances,” he said.
The Second Republic led by President Mnangagwa set the ball rolling after Permanent Secretaries of 21 Ministries were the first to sign the performance contracts last year.
