Warning against corruption

THE 280 staff members of the LTA have been urged to be honest and accountable with their work this year.

Authority CEO Naisa Tuinaceva yesterday warned he would not tolerate corrupt workers in the organisation.

"We want an honest day's work, we want accountability and transparency in the authority and those who still practise and still thrive on corrupt activities — LTA is not a place for you," he said.

"We have a zero tolerance policy on corruption and if people are caught, they will face the full brunt of the law and we will sever ties with those involved.

"Ridding corruption is a national call and the government from day one has been advocating, practically and physically seen removing dishonest civil servants and public servants and workers who are not true to their calling."

Mr Tuinaceva said last year was a remarkable year for the authority.

"LTA managed to complete its job evaluation exercise, paid out the 2012 bonus for its staff, reviewed its human resources manual, merged the corporate and partnership agreement and also achieved remarkably well in its areas of operation."
