WINDHOEK, 08 NOV (NAMPA) – Over 90 per cent of decisions approved by Cabinet between 01 October 2017 and 31 March 2018, have been implemented.
This was announced during a media briefing on Cabinet resolutions by the Minister of Information and Communication Technology, Stanley Simataa here on Thursday.
“An implementation rate of over 90 per cent is really commendable, however our desire is to achieve a full 100 per cent in terms of execution,” he said.
Simataa noted that there were certain ministries and agencies identified that needed to take measures required to ensure that a 100 per cent implementation rate is achieved.
These include the ministries of Education, Arts and Culture; Agriculture, Water and Forestry; International Relations and Cooperation; Health and Social Services; Works and Transport; Justice; Defence; Public Enterprises; Mines and Energy and the Namibia Central Intelligence Service.
Simataa however noted that there are reasons why some of the decisions were not implemented, thus Cabinet has directed these agencies and ministries to rectify the glitches to ensure execution.
“It is only through implementation that decisions taken by Cabinet will drive maximum benefits to the Namibian population,” he noted.
Simataa also announced that Cabinet took note of the fifth National Development Plan’s (NDP) progress report for the 2017/18 financial year.
He noted that a directive was given to all government agencies and ministries to foster improvement in the implementation of programmes through strict execution of the progress report recommendations.
Simataa further noted that NDP5 will be made available to the public on the websites of all government agencies and ministries.
