He said it is becoming business as usual that employees are bent on issuing fake insurances and vehicle registration documents to people who proceed to the Ministry to process their transport related documents.
According to him, the administration has issued several internal memos against employee’s illegally expediting or processing of transport related documents entrusted them by taxpayers.
Minister Wlue added that they were dismissed on Thursday, July 1, 2021 on his order after conducting investigation of complaints of alleged financial frauds thereby; contravening Section 4.2.2h and 4.2.2d of the Civil Service Standing Orders which has the propensity to bring the Ministry to public disrepute.
