 MBABANE – Minister of Tinkhundla Administration and Development David ‘Cruiser’ Ngcamphalala has read the riot act to the newly-appointed regional administrators (RAs).

He reminded them to be punctual when attending meetings or else explicitly explain why they arrived late.
The minister was speaking during a meeting with the RAs and staff of the ministry. The meeting was held at the ministry’s offices yesterday.

Ngcamphalala said they should all emulate the Prime Minister, Ambrose Mandvulo Dlamini, who had seemingly played a crucial role in keeping time since the beginning of his term. The minister stated that Dlamini had arrived 10 minutes before time in all the meetings held at the ministry.

“We should all follow suit and go after the PM’s steps. Let us make sure we arrive early in our meetings and anyone who arrives later than the stipulated time will have to answer,” said Ngcamphalala.


He added that this was according to the strategy discussed in their previous meetings. The minister highlighted that he would like to meet all RAs monthly to discuss the ministry’s administration issues. It was in this regard that he explained that following the government strategy, regional secretaries were expected to attend a weekly heads of departments’ meeting every Monday. He again harped on the importance of keeping time, as in most developing countries, respecting time played a vital role in the countries’ development.

Ngcamphalala stated that the PM had also requested to meet with RAs on dates still to be decided. He appreciated His Majesty the King for the appointment of the RAs into their positions. He said he trusted they would all work towards improving their regions. Ngcamphalala welcomed them and conveyed that the ministry hoped they would all have a fruitful term in office.
The minister also expressed his gratitude to the regional secretaries for holding the fort during the absence of the appointed RAs. Ngcamphalala requested the collaboration of the RAs in executing their mandate as a ministry which was heavily dependant on developing the lives of the people in their various communities. He mentioned that the new government had brought in a strategic plan which he assured that the ministry would create time to present.
