Remove ‘public serpents’, says Juffa

Oro Governor Garry Juffa has labelled public servants in the province as ‘public serpents’.

Juffa, when talking to Popondetta Secondary School students today, urged students to become a ‘changer’ in the province and become public servants and not ‘public serpents’.

 He said public servants in Northern province are like flees who always jump two meters to another location when tried to be captured.

“Our public service machineries are really disorganised and cannot be trusted.”

He added that the administration needs an overhaul and new young energetic leaders to get the public machinery in the province to another level.

Juffa reiterated that he couldn’t sack public servants as they have been protected by the Public Services Management Act and called on relevant authorities to look into the matter.

He further added that among the “public serpents” are also good public servants who should be commended for doing a good job.
