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.
