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, who served as the public works minister for nearly 20 years before becoming president, is widely known for having data at his fingertips, and frequently recites monetary figures and exact lengths of roads to their decimal points without referring to notes.

He has purged more than 20,000 “ghost workers” from the public service payroll and sacked 12,000 government employees for forging their academic transcripts.

“I will continue to straighten out those few people who have been looting this country in order to ensure that the majority of the population can reap the benefits,” he said.

to this end, KUDOS!
hapa Kenya msee akipigwa kalamu kesho anekimbia kwa judge Odunga Na amerudishwa kazi.

magufuli's style is our Pre Kibaki days. We don't want to go back to those days when the President had the final say.

it's better with our current dispensation where the HOS can be overruled by Chief Justice or Speaker of the House. though this style has problems as well

but we're learning as we go on.

Every country needs needs balance of dictatorship and democracy. For instance this situation if you look at that clip that lady didn't deserve to be sacked. If it had happened in Kenya she could sue for wrongful dismissal. In TZ she's toast.
