The government of Tanzania has freezed the registration of all new ships following the recent vessel, laden Libya bound ship flying the country’s flag which was seized carrying explosives in early January, this has made the government to be more vigilant on all ships being registered in Tanzania.
While talking to journalists on Thursday, the vice president of the federal republic of Tanzania, Mrs Samia Hassan said the government will take further action to cancel licenses of all vassels or ships involved in explosive and cocaine transportation.
This is our first step to put a stop on registering such vassels or ships carrying illegal equipments and products, therefore, we want them to remove our flags from their vassels so as to face the law, ‘’ Samia said.
A few days ago, the Greek inspector seized two Ships which were carrying explosives, according to reports. The documentations which they presented were heading to Djibouti, but after thorough investigations, they realised the cargo was heading to Libya.
Mr Julius Nguhulla, the Maritime expert said East Africa will be one of their main targets following another vassel which was seized three weeks ago that was carrying over 1.5 tons of cocaine.
The Tanzanian government will from now on keep a closer eye on all vassels being registered in the country and by doing this, it will help us review our laws efficiently.
