75 work­ers needed at so­cial wel­fare

Swazi Observer - - NATIONAL NEWS -

ABOUT 75 work­ers are needed at the depart­ment of so­cial wel­fare un­der the Deputy Prime Min­is­ter’s of­fice.

This was said on Wed­nes­day by the Direc­tor of So­cial Wel­fare Moses Dlamini when brief­ing the DPM on his depart­ment’s op­er­a­tions.

Dlamini said the staff com­pli­ment at his depart­ment was 120, but more was still needed. He said they were in need of about 75 work­ers to de­cen­tralise their ser­vices to other places in the coun­try.

Dlamini said they were also work­ing on digi­tis­ing their ser­vices so that they could record their work.

It also ap­peared that the depart­ment for the wel­fare of chil­dren had a staff com­pli­ment of 15 mem­bers. The depart­ment aims to en­sure that the coun­try is a safe place for chil­dren.

It tran­spired that most of the de­part­ments at DPMO had staff short­age, which needed to be ad­dressed.

In re­sponse, Masuku said the of­fice should make do with avail­able re­sources and that work­ers should ad­just them­selves to suit the cir­cum­stances that pre­vail. He told them that if they hon­estly did that, things would turn out to be bet­ter.
