Tanzania: TLGU Proposes General Election Dates

THE Tanzania Ladies Golf Union (TLGU) has written to the National Sports Council (NSC), requesting it to endorse the proposed dates for union's general election.

In a letter sent to the NSC General Secretary which the copy was availed to the 'Daily News,' TLGU proposed to stage the general election between January 25 and 26, this year.

TLGU Honorary Secretary, Anitha Siwale said they proposed the above date because majority of its members are expected to compete in Lugalo open tournament at the said dates.

Siwale in her letter dated January 4, this year, to the NSC proposed that the council set the election either a day before or after the tournament. "We believe the NSC will inform us on the election date the earliest so that we stand in a better position to prepare," she said.

Siwale in the letter also informed the NSC that they want to stage the elections this month to give chance to the elected leadership to prepare the national team ahead of the Africa Challenge Trophy. The letter also copied to golf captains of Arusha, Dar es Salaam, Morogoro, Mufindi, TPC and Moshi so that they inform their respective members of the expected elections.

TLGU election was earlier planned for November, last year but the NSC suspended it until after the ruling on leadership case that was filed by some members against the incumbent leaders. The case has since been quashed by the Kisutu Resident Magistrate's Court.
