Government Moves 15 Senior Agriculture Officers

Government has ring changes in some district council's agriculture department moving about 15 senior officers.

In the transfer instruction Zodiak has seen, directors, principals and chief agriculture officers have been moved to other districts.

Local Government Service Commission executive secretary, Berlings Kumpata says there is nothing unusual with the transfers.

"These are just normal transfers in the government," he said.

The transfer of Thyolo Chief Agriculture Officer, Mirriam Kumwenda Ndhlovu has coincide with protests which some agriculture staff made, requesting her immediate transfer over alleged maladministration.

A social and political commentator Victor Chipofya hopes government has followed procedures.

"If procedures in the labour Act were followed, then government is justified. I hope there is no political play, that someone wants to score a political mileage," he said.

Last week, government also transferred some chief and principal environmental health officers in some district councils, including for Thyolo.
