Do it like Magufuli: TZ Electoral Commission gives back $5million while MEC runs in Debt

13

The Electoral Commission in Tanzania has given back to financially prudent President John Pombe Magufuli money amounting to $5 million, the BBC has reported.

John Magufuli

Magufuli leads

According to the report, the EC in Tanzania said they had an excess amount of money which they did not use in the elections and, therefore, it could be used by the country for some other developments.

The EC made it clear to Magufuli that having a surplus did not mean that they marred the elections but they were austere and prudent in their use of money.

It is understood that Magufuli thanked them for the patriotism before ruling that the money be used for the construction of offices for the Electoral Commission.

However, in Malawi the Electoral Commission is indebted and some of their properties have been impounded over failure to settle debts accrued in the 2014 elections which were marred by various irregularities

    Well, Venezuela has a sugar crisis same as Tanzania, Nigeria is facing a tomato crisis, while Ghana is troubled with a water shortage and France is dealing with rail workers’ strike over labour laws such as those on resting times. Incidently Malawi is facing a hunger crisis due to food shortages as a result of water scarcity caused by drought.

    In other news many Tanzanians seem to be celebrating the new government budget going by current news reports.

Panonso aphungu osusa adanyanyala Parliament. Warning……. Dont compare us to our fellow disorganized nation Tanzania

  5. Tanzania has really shown the whole world including selfish Malawians in high position of govt that transparency is possible. Giving back that huge amount to the govt while our own MEC here is being hang on the neck by debts, mpaka kumalandilidwa katundu, very shameful indeed. Akuluakulu ozikonda m’bomamo, tengaponi phunziro apa kuti kubweza ndalama sikupusa ayi koma kukonda dziko lako . Inu amene mukumaba ndalama za boma inu ndamene mumakondwa mukamaona dziko la Malawi likuzunzika. Mankhwala akamasowa nzipatala, ana a sukulu akamaphunzila pansi pa mtengo zimakubebelani. Sinankha inu mukadwala mmapita ku Garden city ndipo ana anu ali ku ma acadamy. Mulungu akukuonani. Misonkho ya anthu ovutika mukudyayo. Izi zachitika ku TZ zikupaseni phunzilo.
