A two-paragraph press statement issued by the Tanzania’s presidential press on Friday said the president had revoked Home Affairs Minister Charles Kitwanga’s appointment, a few days after presenting the 2016/17 budget for his ministry.
Magufuli doesn’t want drunkard ministers in his government!
On Thursday, the drunkard Kitwanga answered a question from a nominated opposition MP Devotha Minja (Chadema), which was asked on her behalf by another opposition nominated MP Suzan Kiwanga (Chadema).
The back and forth went on as follows:
Suzan: It has been 55 years in Kilombero District but police officers still lack housing while their counterparts in Mlimba State live in Tazara houses. How long should we give you to construct houses for police officers and build police stations?
Kitwanga: How old are you yourself? Do not ask the number of years it will take to construct police houses and police stations. Just believe we will construct them. You are my friend, so I can answer you as such. Suzan: Minister, you are showing off while answering my question (laughter in the chambers).
Before it was his turn to answer questions, Mr Kitwanga paced across the floor and sat on the chair preserved for ministers forcing another minister who was responding to MPs’ queries to move from her seat. “Ministers and other civil servants must always display utmost integrity,” Majaliwa said.
The occasion Kitwanga had transgressed was not clear but his demise is in keeping with Magufuli’s “bulldozer” reputation.
Magafuli also annulled last December’s annual festivities to mark independence, a traditionally sumptuous affair, saying it would be “shameful” to spend money on a party in the wake of a cholera outbreak which killed dozens.
