Kampala, Uganda – Uganda is set to join the rest of Africa to celebrate the Africa Public Service Day on June 27, 2024. The day is commemorated annually on June 23 by all UN member states to recognize the contributions of public service to socio-economic development.

The Ministry of Public Service has planned a week-long buildup to the celebrations, featuring sports events and corporate social responsibility activities by government ministries and agencies. The main event will take place at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds, where government ministries and agencies will showcase their services and provide on-site services to the public.

According to the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Public Service, Mrs. Catherine Bitarakwate Musingwiire, the celebrations aim to recognize the vital role public servants play in delivering essential services to citizens. “Public servants are the backbone of our country’s development,” she said. “They work tirelessly to deliver services that improve the lives of citizens, and it is fitting that we recognize their contributions on this special day.”

The theme of this year’s celebrations is “Empowering a Citizen-Centric Public Service for an Inclusive and Thriving 21st Century Africa: A Journey of Lifelong Learning and Transformation”. This theme reflects the government’s commitment to enhancing professionalism and innovation in the public service, and to promoting citizen engagement and participation in the delivery of public services.

The celebrations will feature exhibitions from various government ministries and agencies, showcasing their services and achievements. There will also be interactive sessions, where citizens can engage with public servants and learn more about the work of government ministries and agencies.

In addition, the Ministry of Public Service has organized a series of activities to promote citizen engagement and participation in the delivery of public services. These include a citizen’s forum, where citizens can share their experiences and suggestions on how to improve public services, and a public service fair, where citizens can access information and services from various government ministries and agencies.

The public is invited to join the celebrations at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds and learn more about the services offered by government ministries and agencies. The event promises to be an exciting opportunity for citizens to engage with public servants and learn more about the work of government ministries and agencies.

As the country prepares to celebrate Africa Public Service Day, public servants across the country are gearing up to showcase their contributions to socio-economic development. From healthcare workers to teachers, from engineers to administrators, public servants are the unsung heroes of our country’s development. And on June 27, their contributions will be recognized and celebrated in a grand ceremony at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds.”
