Minister for the Public Service and Administration, Ms Faith Muthambi, sends good wishes to all public servants in all spheres of government as South Africa celebrates Freedom Day on 27 April 2017 as well as Workers’ Day on 1 May 2017.

The Minister calls upon public servants to celebrate these important national and international days with pride as they are the backbone of service delivery machinery of government.

“Without dedicated and professional public servants, service delivery will be impacted in a negative way. We commend the many public servants who, on a daily basis, display professional behaviour which reflects the values and principles of the ideal public service as envisaged in the National Development Plan (NDP).  We further call upon public servants to honour the importance of Freedom Day by committing to the Batho Pele Value Statement – We Belong to our people, We Care about our people and We Serve our people,” said Minister Muthambi.

Minister Muthambi also wants to take the opportunity to wish all Public Service workers a well-deserved Workers’ Day for their immense contribution to the development and building of the country’s economy. The public service is one of the largest employers in the country with almost 1,3 million workers.

“Together with organised labour, as government, we strive for harmonious working relationship as this benefits service delivery to our citizens.  We therefore wish public servants to celebrate this Day as it belongs to them as service delivery machinery of government.  Let us unite in action to celebrate Workers’ Day because Together We Move South Africa Forward,” said the Minister.
