Government says that it is losing a lot of money through civil servants who fail to report for work on time.
Eastern Province Minister, Malozo Sichone, says that government loses more money through paying civil servants who report late for duties and do not have a right attitude towards work, than it does through corruption.
He said this when he paid a surprise visit to some government departments at NAPSA building in Chipata, to check on how departments are using the newly introduced log in, log out system.
The Log in, Log out is a system which requires civil servants to register when they report for work at their offices, indicating the time they reported for duty and the time they knocked off.
Some supervisors had a tough time explaining why people constantly report for work late.
Mr. Sichone also expressed disappointment that there is a lot of cheating on the time people knock off.
In all the four departments the minister checked, it was discovered that all the workers indicate that they knock off at 17 hours.
Mr. Sichone observed that it is not possible that everyone can be knocking off at 17 hours, as some people knock off earlier before the stipulated time.
The Minister demanded that the supervisors must submit compressive reports to his office on all the people who report for work late.
Mr. Sichone visited the Central Statistical Office, CSO, the Mines Development Department, the Survey Department and the Immigration Department.
