Maafisa Mawasiliano wa Wizara na Taasisi zake Tangazeni Mafanikio ya Sekta ya Elimu

Waziri wa Elimu, Sayansi na Teknolojia Prof. Joyce Ndalichako (Mb) amewataka Maafisa Mawasiliano wa Wizara hiyo na Taasisi zilizo chini ya Wizara kutangaza mafanikio ya Sekta ya Elimu ili wananchi waweze kufahamu namna Serikali ilivyowekeza fedha nyingi katika kuboresha mazingira ya utoaji wa elimu nchini.

Waziri Ndalichako ametoa agizo hilo mkoani Morogoro wakati wa ufunguzi wa kikao kazi cha Maafisa hao kilichowashirikisha Wakuu wa Taasisi zilizo chini ya Wizara hiyo ambapo amesema mafanikio makubwa katika sekta ya elimu si ya kificho, hivyo ni vyema yakawa yakitolewa kwa wananchi ili waweze kufahamu ni namna gani Serikali yao ilivyowekeza katika kuhakikisha Watanzania wanapata elimu bora.

Amesema ameshuhudia mara nyingi Maafisa Mawasiliano hao wamekuwa wakijielekeza zaidi katika kutangaza matukio ya viongozi wanapokuwa na shughuli mbalimbali katika taasisi zao na baada ya matukio hayo hakuna kinachoendelea. Amewataka Maafisa hao kubadili utaratibu huo na kujikita zaidi katika kutangaza mafanikio makubwa ya uboreshwaji wa mazingira ya kufundishia na kujifunzia.

“Nimefurahi kwamba katika mafunzo haya wakuu wa Taasisi wameshiriki, naamini ushiriki wenu utaleta mabadiliko na kuwa wepesi wa kutoa habari fasaha na kwa wakati. Tuepuke urasimu, yapo mambo yanatokea kwenye vyombo vya habari na mitandao lakini mmekuwa wazito kutoa mrejesho kwa wananchi, ni vizuri kufanyia kazi ili kuepuka mkanganyiko,” amesema Waziri Ndalichako.
