With over 126,000 public servants have been found not to be doing enough to earn their pay cheques, the Directorate of Public Service Management (DPSM), Director Gaone Macholo has admitted that indeed there is laziness and more needs to be done as the government embarks on its mindset change campaign.

Speaking this week during a media briefing, Macholo was quick to express that she is not impressed at all with service delivery from civil servants. Few months ago, President Mokgweetsi Masisi launched the mindset change, campaign aimed at driving transformation and fostering a collective shift in attitudes and perspectives. Through mindset change Batswana are also implored to be efficient in their everyday duties, which is what Macholo is gunning for.

Last year’s results of Botswana’s Workforce study stated stated that 70% of the staff DPSM is underutilized while 23 % is utilized and only 7% is over utilized. Macholo also said that she would like to her subordinates to focus more on work ethics as they embark on the government’s mindset change campaign.
