The termination of Vanuatu’s longest serving senior female public servant

On March 18th 2021, Dorosday Kenneth Watson, then Director General (DG) of Vanuatu’s Ministry of Justice and Community Services, was terminated from her high-level position, ending a 34-year career as Vanuatu’s most senior female public servant.

The Council of Ministers’ (COM) controversial decision to dismantle the Ministry of Justice and Community Services, and restructure it into a Ministry of Fisheries, Oceans and Maritime Affairs provided the backdrop to this termination.
