BUREAUCRACY in the civil service hampers smooth implementation of policies and decision making, Former Finance Minister Katele Kalumba has said.

Dr Kalumba said there had been poor implementation of policies in the civil service which had negatively affected development of the country.

“Zambians we are very good at policy formulation but poor at implementation not because of political leadership but because of administration which is the civil service,” Dr Kalumba said.

Dr Kalumba said there was need to modernise the civil service to make it more professional and effective.

“We are good at policy formulation but the major hindrance has been the civil service which I feel should be modernized and computerised to address bureaucracy in the civil service,” he said.

Dr Kalumba said the civil service should migrate from folio system to computerise systems to enhance efficiency.

“Our civil service has been pinned down to folio administration in the computer system we are still using this outdated system and this affects decision making,” he said.
