President Mugufuli Strikes Again: Tanzanian Ministers And Officials To Start Using Totoya Vitz In 2017, Mercedes Benzs’ To Be Auctioned

President Magufuli has banned all senior public officials from using fuel guzzling 4 x 4 cars and other luxury cars, ordering that all those cars in be seized and sold in a public auction and the money used to provide public goods & services.
The president further ordered that all ministers, chief justices, ambassadors and senior state officials must be supplied with a choice of Probox, Passo, Platz, Vitz , duet or any car that is less than 1400CC.
This move is likely to cause a lot of public anxiety in a country where Magufuli has become a national ‘sweetheart’ for his austerity measures and revolutionary ideas that seems to have eclipsed even opposition.
“This is a public service not a gravy train. Anybody who came here to make riches should quit and join the private sector. All ministers and senior statehouse officials are here to work not to seek obscene opulence. I don’t want to see them drive those big cars (4X4 guzzlers), if anyone insist please let them go buy their own cars, we (the government) shall fuel for them. To build this country like I promised during campaigns, we must make sacrifices and that includes sacrificing those unnecessary comforts for the small cars. I have ordered the police to impound any such big cars rode by state officials on the road & those officials be prosecuted. We are not here to rob the average Tanzanian but to make his life better. This is the reason I skipped the AU heads of state meeting in Addis and sent Mama Suluhu ( Dep President)” noted Magufuli shortly in down town Dar-Es-Salaam on a working trip.
A spot check by spectator news desk reveals that whereas other presidents traveled to the AU summit, Tanzania was represented by its deputy president Ms Suluhu Hassan.
It will be remembered that Magufuli has also banned use of presidential red carpets. However this latest move is likely to ignite a hubbub in neighboring Kenya where even governors huge convoys and other senior state officials use huge fuel guzzling convoys.

  1. I love this brother. In the real world and as a real Leader, not just a President. There is a big difference between the 2. A leader leads and lives by example for and by the people. A President, only presents himself to his people and live otherwise not by example. The President of Tanzania, is a true Leader. Live for something or die for nothing. And for so long our African people have been dying for nothing. Government officials should be as the people they suppose to serve. No to be Honorable because you were given a position in government. The people voted you into those positions. Now it is time for them to earn the respect of the people for giving them the opportunity to serve the people. That is a true leader.

    I have seen so many government officials voted in to office only to serve themselves, and get fat. The President of Tanzania is a true leader by serving his people. If the West does not like how he leads his country, then they should go. Unlike previous Presidents that took handouts from the West only for the people to keep suffering. Now Tanzania has a leader. Vision is everything, and to see how the past has not benefited his country is to see what he has to do to change the future and control their own destiny.

    Love and Peace to the President of Tanzania, at TRUE LEADER. Other Presidents in Africa should look, listen and learn how to become a leader. By example.
