Mozambique rebels mourn leader's sudden death
The Mozambican Council of Ministers today approved a code of conduct for state officials and agents which lays out the values of probity and professionalism essential for civil servants.
In a press conference at the end of the weekly cabinet session, spokeswoman Ana Comoane said that the code imposes minimum standards of behaviour for state employees and agents, both while performing their duties and outside.
“It is an updated and systematised instrument on ethical and deontological rules dispersed across various legal instruments, both nationally and regionally as well as internationally,” she said.
The government, she continued, intends the actions of state employees and agents to be guided by excellence, legality and loyalty.
“The code establishes general prohibitions as well as corresponding sanctions as a way to ensure the dignity and prestige of public servants, as well as safeguarding the good name and interests of the state and private individuals,” she said.Source: Lusa
