Tanzania's President Magufuli Sacks Officials Who Do Not Have Retentive Memory

What a reason for sacking someone!!!

Tanzanian President John Magufuli sacked two senior officials late on Monday after they failed to recall immediately how much money was allocated by the government in their respective districts for public road construction projects.

Magufuli, nicknamed "the Bulldozer" for his infrastructure projects and leadership style, launched his reform drive after he was elected in late 2015, promising to transform an economy hobbled by red-tape and corruption and carry out a major building program. He has sacked thousands of civil servants over the past two years in a crackdown on government inefficiency and corruption.

A statement issued by the president's office said the sacked director of the Bukoba Municipal Council, Erasto Aron Mfugale, and the director of the Bukoba Rural Municipal Council, Mwantum Kitwana Dau, would be assigned to other duties. The president's office did not explain the reasons for the sackings.

However, the two municipal directors were dismissed just hours after the president summoned them at a public gathering and demanded that they announce exactly how much was allocated by the government for road construction in their districts.

"You can't talk to me like that," Magufuli said at the launch of a new airport in the lakeside town of Bukoba, which was televised live. Dau had informed the president that she oversees many departments and could therefore not immediately recall the exact budget allocated for road projects.

*What do you think about his reason for sacking them...


  1. All these ancestors that end up as Presidents.

    Why not ask them to provide a report (on paper )on the breakdown of the money allocated to their district.

  2. This just made my day...不不不不

  3. hahahahaha na wa. Chai. Dont know what to say self.

    When presido self dey read from sheet of papers. What a disgraceful way to go.

    The children will become a laughing stock in their various schools

  4. Cogent. I can't be in charge and not be articulate on what is involved or not in my constituent even when asked if I just woke up. I should be sitting on my game.

    1. Even to the very last detail? Are you really sure, Gold Taken?

    2. Do you deserve a reply to your question? If Yes, Emeka, state your reasons why you can't relate with simple work ethic but if No, thank you in advance.

    The reason is 101% in order. That should actually show competence,knowing how much was allocated to your ministry. He didn't ask for break-down o.........just how much was allocated and she doesn't know?! Omo......abeg,can we adopt him here in Nigeria?
