Internships back in govt

23 May 2019 | Government

Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila has directed the lifting of the internship programme ban in the public sector from 1 June.

She instructed in a notice that the secretaries of the National Assembly and National Council, deputy auditor-general, chief electoral officer, director of the National Central Intelligence Service and chief regional officers should start accepting students seeking internships from that date.

Kuugongelwa-Amadhila issued a media statement on Tuesday through cabinet secretary George Simataa, saying the ban that was issued in January this year citing pending investigations and review of the appointment modality, is lifted as the reviews are finalised.

She noted that she made the decision to lift the ban based on the Public Service Commission Act No. 13 of 1995.

“The revision of the placement modality for professional interns and trainees to be trained on the level of public service have come with new changes that will be to appoint interns on a temporary fixed-term contract with a basic fixed allowance,” the statement said.

Kuugongelwa-Amadhila added that government will abolish the automatic transition into entry functional levels after the interns complete the training and it will also remove the basis for salary recognition for professional interns and trainees.

“The content of this circular should be brought to the attention of all staff members, professional interns, students and graduates in different institutions,” the statement read.
