Employees do not own their work places

2015-08-22 09:33

I WOULD like to respond to the article (The Witness, August 17). It is absolutely shocking when public servants take the law into their own hands as if they own the departments they are employed in.

I wonder what standard of education these people have because I know for a fact that someone who is educated does not give such putrid and atrocious service to anybody. Why can the people in government places admit when they are wrong and apologise? The Department of Transport needs to set an example with the guilty parties and stop the dilly dallying by saying they will investigate.

The victim should be compensated for the trauma he went through and maybe that will be an eye-opener for many other employees who think they own their work places. It is rare that one gets the professional help one deserves from the testing grounds at Mkondeni. All employees should be sent for special courses on how to treat the public.
