Col Kunda accused the heads of government departments of going against government by not supporting such programmes and urged them to be careful and execute their duties diligently and professionally.
The departments of social welfare, the judicially, community development, Zamtel, Zampost, veterinary, Forestry and the immigration departments did not send representatives to attend the independence day celebrations yesterday.
