Example text

Hlabagaan (2006) found that there was lack of disaster management and preparedness plans in information centres in Botswana, and Kootshabe (2011) reported that none of the government ministries and departments in Botswana have disaster preparedness and management plans. A study by Ngulube (2003) also confirmed that disaster plans are not yet a major priority in many archival institutions in South Africa and there are no plans to draw up such plans. This shows that they may lose their records in the event of disaster, which has the potential to disrupt business and, in the process, affect their customers.

For ordinary people the rule of law and public order are vital defences against anarchy, crime and impoverishment. For FOI and openness in government to deliver any beneficial effect in relation to those public goods, it is necessary that they should enhance public trust, as the Campaign for Freedom of Information consistently argued they would. Yet there seems to be little evidence of any such development. The work of Chapman (1997) on relationships between ministers and civil servants is relevant in this context.

These developments include: ■■ public enquiries and select committees questioning civil servants in public; ■■ ministers failing to support their civil servants when the latter come under criticism, even though constitutional conventions dictate that they cannot defend themselves; ■■ politicization of the civil service, particularly through the introduction of special advisers nominated by ministers but paid by the tax payer; ■■ the apparently widespread practice of officially condoned and highly selective leaking, that is, of ministers foregoing the right to receive and consider policy advice and its implementation outside the public arena; ■■ the development of management by objectives and targets that began with the Fulton report in 1970s and that implies a form of accountability incompatible with ministerial responsibility; and ■■ falling standards on the part of politicians and ultimately the public.
