Tanzania: DC Bans Use of Mobile Phones

Tarime District Commissioner Glorious Luoga has banned the use of mobile phones at the District Hospital during working hours.

He issued the ban during a day-long meeting with workers of the hospital workers last week.

He said the decision was aimed at improving service delivery at the hospital which serves hundreds of patients, particularly from poor families.

"The use of mobile phones is prohibited until further notice," he declared, warning the workers to abstain from corrupt acts.

"Asking bribes from patients is a painful act.

I want you to change and provide quick services to patients," he said. He said he would install a suggestion box at the hospital to receive public views in relation to services provided at the largest health facility.

Members of District Defence and Security Committee accompanied Luoga during his visit to the hospital.
