Tourism and Arts Permanent Secretary Reverend Howard Sikwela has urged the Department of National Parks (DNPW) to correct the impression of under-performance seen by outsiders.

Speaking during a meeting with staff at the DNPW offices in Chilanga, Wednesday, the PS said there was always room for staff to improve and correct wrong perceptions held by stakeholders.

Rev Sikwela explained that in 2019, his office would not entertain inertia and mediocre approach towards work that had dented the image of the Ministry.

This is contained in a statement availed by Tourism Ministry public relations officer, Sakabilo Kalembwe.
