The Monitor :: Morupisi warns civil servants








Addressing public servants stationed in the north eastern part of the country at Bugalo Primary School in Tatisiding, he said DPSM will do everything in its power to ensure that civil servants remain apolitical.

"As long as I am the DPSM director, civil servants must remain apolitical," said Morupisi to nods of approval and some murmurs of disagreement.

Morupisi said at the rate at which public officers were engaging in politics, civil servants will start serving the public along political lines. 

He said civil servants should concentrate on serving the nation without fear or favour.

"We do not want a situation whereby service seekers will be expected to produce a party card in order to be served," he said.

Botswana Federation of Public Service Union (BOFEPUSU) Deputy Secretary General Ketlhalefile Motshegwa told The Monitor that workers will shorten Morupisi's stay at DPSM director. "He will bear the brunt of protecting a government that does not care about its workforce," he said.  

Motshegwa said the labour movement has an inherent interest in Botswana politics. As a trade union, he argued, they have the right to critique government policy because it affects them.
