TANZANIA’S Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa has cautioned districts’ top leaders in the country to stop muddling and instead have to do their job.
PM raised the concern on Saturday when talking to civil servants at Mbamba Bay township in Nyasa district, Ruvuma region saying wherever he has been visiting, he has come across district commissioners (DC) or District Executive Directors’ fighting.
“I have been receiving complains in all my visits in the regions and most of the grievances come from councils and Consultative Councils, but here in Nyasa things are a bit alright only that the DED and DC are not in good terms,” he said.
The PM said there is a small problem between the two leaders, asking them why they shouldn’t stop fighting and concentrate on their duties.
Majaliwa said a DC can enter in any council meeting and ask for ay reports he/she wants.
“If so give him the report. He is not a member of that meeting, but he has the mandate to participate in it,” clarified PM Majaliwa.
He went further that the district executive director is the CEO whom the government has entrusted him with staffs to lead them.
“We have given you public funds for the development of this district. If someone wants them, tell him they have special directive, they are not to be taken anywhere,” PM told the Nyasa DED, Dr. Oscar Mbyuzi who has been in tangle of war with his DC, Isabella Chilumba.
