Tanzania has high hopes on President Samia-Deputy Speaker  

Deputy House Speaker Tulia Ackson said that Tanzania has high hopes on President Samia, following tangible achievements attained during her six months in presidency, citing some of her achievements as building several classrooms and schools.

“IMF relief package was one of President Samia’s actions in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic, apart from other measures against the disease such as wearing face masks and washing hands,” the Deputy Speaker of the Parliament said.

Tulia was speaking at the Chamwino State House on Monday during the President Samia Suluhu Hassan’s event to swear in three leaders including Sihinyanga Regional Commissioner Sophia Mjema, former Zanzibar Chief Justice, Mr Omar Makungu, who becomes Tanzania’s Court of Appeal Justice and Mr Mustapher Siyani, who is the new Principal Judge of the High Court of Tanzania.

Speaking at the sideline of the event, Minister in the President’s Office, Regional Administration and Local Government, Ummy Mwalimu, said President Samia has empowered her Ministry in efforts to build classrooms to accommodate all students who would join Form I next year.

Mwalimu also said that her Ministry will soon be going to issue a list indicating each region and the number of classrooms to be built as per the number of students.

She further said that the government will consider the needs of each region in the country.

The Minister who is a lawmaker from Tanga Region said that from July to September the government disbursed about 5.2bn/- for the construction of 24 dispensaries, 6 health centres and 5 council hospitals.

She tasked regional commissioners (RCs) to supervise the disbursed funds as the move to bring intended impacts.
