Minister Mkuchika: Contract employment system too expensive for govt

By Patrick Kisembo

THE Tanzanian government has said it doesn’t support the contract employement system because it is very expensive than the permanent employment system.

This was said over the weekend by State Minister, President’s Office (Public Service and Good Governance) George Mkuchika said this at a special Programme aired by Tanzania Broadcasting Cooperation.

Mkuchika said his office was working on the matter, and soon, public organisations won’t be allowed to employ new staff on contract terms.

“We want each office to employ according to its needs; the contract system is too expensive for the government,” he said.

On good governance, the minister said so far, the government was doing well but sensitisation on corruption was still a challenging aspect in the whole system.

He said for the country to address the problem effectively, the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB) needs to focus on public sensitisation education.

“We need to learn from Scandinavian countries, which succeeded to fight corruption because they engaged the public through sensitisation; people were taught on the need to fight graft at all levels. PCCB must apply this strategy as well,” he said.
