MAGUFULI'S WEEK 31

In the news about the miraculous way to prosperity in Tanzania

Analyse: Fraud, dishonesty, hostility, bestiality, nudity and every other evil one can think of had become the norm rather than the exception. It became normal for Tanzanians to tell tale and narrate how they were getting away with theft, murder , dishonesty in every facet of life. Every employer had issues with certificates that were forged in order to get good jobs. Today the weights and measures department is advertising measures to protect consumers just as much as Fair Competitions Commission. In other words, the reputation of President Dr Magufuli as a no nonsense manager who will fire lazy public servants has got them to rethink and begin to deliver.
