Government says the implementation of results- based management systems in public institutions has resulted in enhanced strategic intra-government coordination and linkages which ensure increased efficiency and effectiveness in the public sector.Â
The remarks by the Minister of Public Service,Â ProfessorÂ Eliphas Mukonoweshuro,Â indicating improvement in service delivery by public servants, come at a time when the continent is celebrating Africa Public Service Day.
This isÂ a day dedicated to public service officials who devote their lives to serving their countries.
Â Professor Mukonoweshuro commended the countryâ€™s public sector for their commitment in serving the country during challenging times.
He added that Zimbabwe has made huge strides in enforcing results-based management strategies which have seen improved service delivery in key public institutions.
Â â€œWe have done a lot as government in strengthening leadership and management through the implementation of result-based management systems which have seen improved service delivery in key public institutions,â€ he said.
Meanwhile, Professor Mukonoweshuro said belated national commemorations of the Africa Public Service Day,Â are set for the 28th of June in Masvingo under the theme: â€œStrengthening leadership and management for improved service delivery in Africa.â€
The idea to celebrate Africa Public Service Day was conceived at the first Pan African Conference of Ministers of Civil Service held in Tangier, Morocco in 1994, where it was decided that the 23rd of June every year should be commemorated as the Africa Day of Administration and Civil Service, which later became the Africa Public Service Day.
