Overhaul of civil service proposed

DEPUTY Finance minister Terence Mukupe has proposed an overhaul of the civil service to get rid of deadwood and enable the country to realise its full potential through efficient service delivery.

In a message posted on his Facebook wall, which he later confirmed as authentic, Mukupe said several civil servants had outlived their usefulness just like former President Robert Mugabe and urgently required replacement by young blood.

“We have to destroy this country before we can have any form of radical economic transformation. Almost everything I look at in our country needs to be retired like Mugabe before we can really seriously take this country to where it should be,” he said.

“Starting with civil service reform, too many long-serving civil servants that need to be retired. We need to let others with fresh ideas, the right level of maturity and who can match the energy of our President EDM [Emmerson Mnangagwa] be given the space to thrive!!!,” he added.

  1. the reform must be done cautiously coz the so called young brains only think of getting rich quick….an idea they got from the just ended, if not prevailing era.

  2. WE DO NOT WANT TO HEAR ABOUT PLANS ,GOALS , ASPIRATIONS, INTENTIONS, WE WANT TO SEE TANGIBLE RESULTS. WE WANT TO HEAR ABOUT WORK THAT HAS BEEN DONE.

    “We need to let others with fresh ideas, the right level of maturity and who can match the energy of our President EDM [Emmerson Mnangagwa] be given the space to thrive!!!,” he added.” Funny statement those who can match ED’s energy are those whom you want to retire because ED is also tired.

    Terence Mukupe is the guy who imported real fuel from Beira. He declared his trucks as transit to Zambia with the contents. He emptied them in Harare and loaded water real H2O but Zimra guys in Chirundu were not fooled. He rushed to Chirundu border post, thanks to his political connections within three months he is made DEPUTY minister of finance. Eisssh….what an honest DM

    Mr T Mukupe why not eat and keep quiet. ED has a soft spot for you. What are your credentials like. What company have you managed. Which ministry have you worked before. Leave the Minister responsible for the civil service to comment on that issue and concentrate on monetary issues blaz.Silence is golden people won’t know that you know nothing
