“Secretaries are key in Government operations. You are the face of every ministry and you are a bridge between the past and the future, you keep confidential documents and institutional memory as you know.

“You are indispensable as ‘directors of directors’ who create schedules for their bosses and correct wrong information while ensuring high performance and productivity by keeping critical documents,” said Matambo.
