Constraints to service delivery in the department

Optimal performance would have been achieved during this period but the department was bogged down by;

  • Increasing cases of OVC and PWDs in need of support which cannot match the dwindling funds for various programs i.e OVC,CBR.
  • The sector is further constrained by the lack of a grant and staff for labour protection activities though a number of labour related cases are handled by this department.
  • Lack of community centres and libraries especially in this ICT era
  • The old people are not benefiting from the Central Government SAGE program for the elderly .
