Government will be extending annual performance review contracts given to Permanent Secretaries to parastatals and local authorities.


The move, which was announced by President Mnangagwa during today’s State of the Nation Address is meant to enhance competence and work ethic.


“To entrench the work ethic of the Second Republic and the culture of accountability, all our Permanent Secretaries signed Performance Contracts in December, 2020.

At the end of 2021, the inaugural evaluation of the Contracts will be conducted,” said President Mnangagwa.

He said the net will be cast wider, to include everyone who leads public institutions.

“In January 2022, all heads of State Owned Enterprises, Parastatals as well as Local Authorities will be required to sign similar Contracts in order to guarantee that our citizens enjoy value for money,” said President Mnangagwa.


President Mnangagwa called on Zimbabweans in different sectors to work hard for the good of the country.


“Increased production, productivity, innovation and positive ingenuity are inspiring many, especially our young people to work harder to reach their full potential for the ultimate prosperity of our nation,” President Mnangagwa said.
