Johannesburg - Public servants should publicly apologise when they do not live up to expectations, Public Service and Administration Minister Richard Baloyi
said on Tuesday.
"We want to know where we have failed, and we are asking businesses and academia to share their experiences with us," he told a Black Business Executive Circle round table discussion in Sandton
"Public servants are the future of service delivery and we are willing to recognise when we are at fault, and are trying to get advice from all sectors of society."
Baloyi said the responsibility for the success of public servants and service delivery was not the exclusive responsibility of government, but rested with citizens as well.
"We all need to be guided, and we need the motivation of everyone to live up to the promises we as government have made."
