Met to Prioritise Staff Housing, Safety


Deputy Minister of Environment and Tourism Tommy Nambahu on Monday assured staff at the Ministry of Environment and Tourism that the ministry would prioritise the safety of staff members by upgrading their current run-down shelters.

According to Nambahu, many staff members within the ministry of environment live in dilapidated temporary shelters that expose them to a number of risks, including wildlife, which can often be observed roaming around their temporary shelters.

“Safety is important, there are no excuses. We know there are no resources, but we can do better than that. It is as if we do not recognise the work being done by these people,” said Nambahu, who said plainly that he was shocked by some of the accommodation facilities.
