The information was made public on Monday by the Minister of State Administration and Public Service Ana Comoana at the opening of the sector’s 7th Coordinating Council in Moatize, Tete province.
According to Minister Comoana, the discovery of these instances of irregular employees came to light thanks to the latest ‘proof of life’ report.
Ana Comoana said that the discovery and cancellation of these illegal employment situations had saved the government more than 13 million meticais, which was being channelled into salaries.
Ana Comoana said disciplinary actions were underway against some state officials and agents.
At the same meeting, Secretary of State for the province of Tete, Elisa Zacarias, spoke of the need for coordinating council participants to prioritize debates so as to better serve the population.
The Governor of Tete province, Domingos Viola, in turn welcomed the work of the Ministry of State Administration and Civil Service in materializing the decentralization package.
The 7th Coordinating Council of the Ministry of State Administration and Civil Service opened on Friday under the motto: ‘For a Public Administration Focused on Improving the Quality of Services”.
