Mr. Simuchoba says it is the duty of civil servants to be vigilant and put their efforts together to report any acts of suspected terrorism for development to be achieved.
Mr. Simuchoba was speaking on behalf of Eastern Province Permanent Secretary Chanda Kasolo when he addressed civil servants at the Eastern Province Development Coordinating Committee meeting in Chipata this morning.
