SOUTHERN Province permanent secretary Bert Mushala has called for unity among civil servants in the area for development to take place.

Addressing provincial heads of department yesterday at Leons Lodge in Choma, Mushala said it was important to love one another and give advice where it was due rather than working against each other.

Mushala further urged civil servants in the province to operate like a herd of buffalo so as to achieve development for the people of Southern Province.

He also warned that those who would embrace vices that had the potential to retard development, such as corruption, would have themselves to blame, warning that he would not take kindly to such.

"If we remain united, no one will divide us as people in the province," he said.

And speaking at the same meeting, outgoing Southern Province permanent secretary Bernard Namachila urged civil servants to be loyal to the government of the day.

Namachila, who likened his disappointed to Big Brother Africa, said he received the development with calm and thanked President Sata for according him an opportunity to serve in his government.

"These appointments and disappointments remind of BBA because the moment you are told that you have been evicted, all you can do is to go and nothing else... even if you still wanted to go on, so that's how these positions like the one I was holding are," said Namachila.

Namachila also boasted of being the longest-serving permanent secretary in Southern Province since the ruling PF took office in 2011.

He advised the civil servants not to compromise themselves in the manner they discharge their duties but instead should strive to remain focused towards work.

"The only problem I encountered in this province is elements of corruption and I think that's the only thing some people might have hated me for because I'm a straightforward person," said Namachila.
