Folha de Maputo / Minister Vitoria Digo
The Labour, Employment and Social Security Minister, Vitória Dias Diogo, last Friday swore in new heads of departments of the Inspectorate-General of Labour (IGT), at the central services.
They are Maria Judite Bonifácio Mungói, who was appointed to head the Department of Health, Hygiene and Safety at Work (DSHST), Ariel Arnaldo Comé, appointed head of the Department of Methods and Work Control. Elísio Bernardo Manhiça was appointed head the Department of Control and Labour Relations and Laura Saimone Zacarias was sworn in as head of the Department of Financial and Patrimonial Control.
Addressing the new appointees, Diogo said that their appointment was an important step towards the pursuit of the government’s labour market monitoring policies, defending the legislation and promoting peace and justice in the labour sector and an appropriate environment for business, and the creation of more jobs.
These jobs, according to Diogo, have a legal human dignity component which is only possible with a labour inspectorate that promotes justice and encourage the main players in the productive sector to promote a culture of work, which is essential for increasing production and productivity.
The minister drew attention to the fact that the new directors would now be exposed to all sorts of situations which would require of them the highest sense of public service, devoting themselves more to working towards the accomplishment of goals and less to fomenting divisions within the sectoral groups they lead. She advised them to work with their colleagues without any discrimination or sense of superiority.
For this, Diogo said, they would need professional discretion, rigor, integrity, dedication to work and, above all, humility, because the nature of their activities meant they would be working not only with their colleagues but with the general public. Their main barometer of success would be the level of satisfaction felt by users of IGT services, from workers and employers to society in general.Source: Folha de Maputo
