The Ministry of Home Affairs, Immigration, Safety, and Security has missed its performance target. 

The Head of Performance, Assurance Monitoring, and Evaluation Directorate in the Namibia Correctional Service therefore called on the ministry's staff to take the performance agreement system (PMS) seriously. 

Speaking at the Ministerial Annual Planning Workshop, Commissioner Lovisa Uukelo said more still needs to be done by the ministry to reach the 80% performance target as outlined by the Harambee Prosperity Plan II. 

"The ministry's average performance as per the annual plan 2023-2024 was 73.3%; that is, by the end of the third quarter, if you go back to HPP2, what should be our score? It is supposed to be 80%, but we are only having 73.3%. What does that indicate? We are almost there, but there are still a few percentages that we need to get there." 

The four-day workshop aims to study the performance management system, analyse data, identify areas for improvement, and set goals for the fiscal year. 

The outcome of the workshop is expected to provide insight and information for decision-making in the 2024–2025 financial year planning process.
