Tanzania government employees who are supposed to relocate to Dodoma, but will still be in Dar es Salaam come 2019 should consider themselves jobless, because even the State House will pack its bags in two years.
President John Magufuli revealed here that, he intends to move to Dodoma, the new capital city by the year 2019; “The Prime Minister, Mr Kassim Majaliwa has already shifted to Dodoma. The Vice-President, Mama Samia Suluhu Hassan on the other hand will be migrating there next year,” he stated.
“Therefore, after 2019, when the State House shifts to Dodoma it will be strange to see any ministry, central government offices and related institutions still sticking to Dar es Salaam and those that are going to be stubbornly clinging there, should consider themselves sacked automatically,” the Head of State insisted.
The President pointed out that there is no way that the country will continue to dillydally with the issue of moving its capital to Dodoma; “The Father of the Nation, Mwalimu Nyerere issued the directive way back in 1973 and it is unfathomable that we are still dragging our feet over the issue,” he said.
