The Public Service Co-ordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC) today commemorates Africa Public Service Day with understanding and recognition of the immense contribution made by all public servants across Africa in fighting Covid-19 pandemic. The PSCBC wishes to highlight the role of public administration in building and sustaining peaceful co-existence among communities.
PSCBC would like to thank and celebrate all the frontline workers who work tirelessly to combat this pandemic. The lives of all the nationals are indebted to you and we urge everyone to work together with all public servants tasked to help communities in getting tested and ensuring safety to make Africa a better place for all.
Africa Public Service Day is an event entrenched in the African Union calendar. It originates from the conference of African Ministers for Public or Civil Service held in Tangier, Morocco in 1994. It was agreed at this conference that 23 June should be celebrated annually as Africa Public Service Day to recognize the value and virtue of service to the community.
The aim of this commemoration is to boost public administration programmes, public sector performance and recognise the value of service the community.
