Speaking on Wednesday at a meeting with staff and workers of the council since his recent appointment by President John Magufuli, Mbeya City Executive Director Elias Amede said he was a believer in adherence to the time factor in the performance of duty saying every worker must observe punctuality and perform his/her duties diligently.
“I am the same person who worked closely with other staffs when I was a Treasurer in this council, but what has changed is only the position, I want you to adhere to all that we had agreed upon in the past,” he added.
He called upon the council workers and staff to submit their performance reports to ensure whether their work performance was rising or dropping and must therefore fathom the consequences of their mistakes.
Amede stressed the need for strict supervision on the council’s revenue collection and expenditure thereof to enable the city to get a clean certificate compared to what it used to be.
Earlier, Mbeya District Commissioner, William Ntinika congratulated Amede for his work performance which made him trusted by President Magufuli.
He called on Mbeya city council’s staff and workers to emulate Amede’s example as well as the former Planning Officer Saad Mtambule who has also been appointed as the Arusha District Executive Director.
Ntinika said that Mbeya city has various challenges needing solutions by high level cooperation and that they should not come to disregard Amede simply because they were working with him in the same office.
When swearing in regional commissioners, district commissioners and Councils Executive Directors recently at the State House in Dodoma, President Magufuli said he appointed the two officials from Mbeya city council to become directors because of their good performance especially in revenue collection whereas they attained 103 percent of the target.
