75 workers needed at social welfare
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.
