Tanzania: No Room for Irresponsible Workers - PM

PRIME Minister Kassim Majaliwa has strongly warned that irresponsible workers will not be tolerated, adding that the Fifth Phase Government under President John Magufuli was serious and committed to fulfill promises contained in the 2015 Chama cha Mapinduzi (CCM) Election Manifesto. "This is a serious government.

We are committed to fulfill the CCM Election Manisfesto... .. irresponsible workers will not be tolerated," he said also appealing to CCM members and leaders at all levels to work as a team and serve the people.

Mr Majaliwa made the remarks while addressing CCM members and leaders at Rweikiza Medium Schools, at Kyetema Village, some 20 kms from Bukoba town on Wednesday morning, before he concluded his four-day tour in the region.

He reminded the leaders that a big task facing them was to ensure that CCM wins most seats during local government elections scheduled for next year. "You have a big challenge to ensure that more CCM members were registered.

Also, you should focus on regaining seats including Ten Cell leaders, Village/ Harmlet Chairmen and Councillors," he said.

Apart from increasing CCM membership, the Premier also challenged them to identify viable projects to enable the party become more economically strong.

He also invited CCM members to take part in the investment campaign . Mr Majaliwa briefly outlined success recorded during a three-year period (2015-2018).

On health sector, every District Council in the country including Bukoba District Council had received about 1.2bn/- for construction of two health centres and about 2.1bn/- for construction of a district hospital.

As for education, the government is giving free education for all from Nursery to Form Four. The Premier also said that the government lowered electricity connectivity charges from 380,000/- to a mere 27,000/- to enable more people to have electricity in their homes.

The target was to ensure that all villages-... there are about 15,000 villages in the country... get electricity by 2021.

He elaborated that more people were getting clean and safe water and the target was to achieve 80 per cent by 2020... this is a very big achievement.

We have to support the government in this campaign, he said. Bukoba Rural Member of Parliament (MP), Mr Jasson Rweikiza advised the government to establish Rural Water Supply Agency (RWSA), with the aim to speed up water supply to more rural areas.

He commended the government for the efforts in providing social services to the majority poor Tanzanians, adding that several health centres had already been completed including Kanazi and Rubale, while Kishanje, Katoro and Maruku had reached between 80 to 99 per cent while each health centre received about 400m/- and 2bn/- was for the construction of a district hospital.
