  • most of the government agricultural boards are being abolished , to be replaced by an export cash crop  board and  one for all other crops , please see  http://dailynews.co....ven-last-chance  this is part of economic advancement, agriculture needs to be modernised.  the boards have to serve the farmers , not just generate bills to pay with little end benefit. effort will also be put in by the government to minimize conflict between farmers and pastrolists

 This is good news because, the Tanzanian government  is not just talking it really means what it says.We can look forward to a rise in elephant numbers especially in Selous National Game Reserve,Ruaha ecosystem and Kitavi National Parks.I can imagine that the next step for Tanzania, will be to destroy its stockpile of ivory. Anyway,we can all applaud the determination of the Tanzanian government to stop poaching, which has become way out of hand.

 

Furthermore,I feel that tourism will improve in Tanzania, due to the fact that the government is sincerely dedicated in stoping poaching.I also feel that investment in tourist infrastructure will improve.

There has been more warnings about corruption

 

president  Magufuli was asked to speak to a Catholic mass in Arusha , please see http://www.dailynews...ean-up-the-mess

 

He stated that  Tanzania should not be poor as it has wildlife, a whole lot of farmland and Tanzanite gemstones.

 

tough  and stringent measures would be used against  unscrupulous leaders and civil servants because this is what has to be done

 

those who should be looking after national treasures had used them for ill gotten wealth to oppress the people

 

those who were doing the wrong thing would be treated harshly  if necessary

 

the president  regards using the assets of the national for illegitimate personal gain as oppressing the people 

 

he declared to the people assembled "I won't let you down"

 

well things have changed massively, anyone who has been corrupt or unjust should be afraid , very afraid

This is really big news which should encourage all of us,President Magufuli is showing his grit and determination to stop poaching.Nobody is immune from prosecution.This woman was undoubtedly sure that due to her connections she was not liable to prosecution both within the Tanzanian and the Chinese government.However, Magufuli has proven this wrong. I am sure that the Chinese government will congratulate President Magufuli,since they want to show how they are against elephant poaching.

 

Furthermore,I have no doubt that this woman will actually serve her sentence.It will serve as a warning to all buyers of ivory that Tanzania will no longer tolerate their actions. I imagine in the future that Tanzania will have a massive burning of ivory.I also expect more arrests of illicit ivory traders to follow.Please expect this woman to confess to whom all her accomplices are from top to bottom, in an effort to reduce her sentence.I think this is a start of a much bigger shake up.

Another positive event has just happened in Tanzania.President Magufuli is already getting the recognition that he deserves.I am sure that this will improve Tanzania's position among investors,foreign tourists and that Tanzania will be treated with more respect.Let's hope it continues.

This is quite encouraging news not just for Tanzania but for the entire region as well.President Magufuli is not only trying to fight corruption but he is also trying to make his country more productive.Obviously, both Tanzania and Zambia will be able to export more, and more efficiently with the improved railway service.

All the livestock originating  from Kenya and Uganda  is ordered out  by 15 June

 

it is believed that 5 million cattle,sheep,goats  and donkeys are involved

 

all livestock  must be removed from national parks and game reserves by their keepers by 30 June , or the authorities will forcibly do it

Note that the Tanzanian government continues to intensify its efforts against poaching.Now it will be deploying drones in Tarangire National Park.I only hope that it will follow by utilizing drones in Selous Game Preserve,Ruaha National Park and other places where wildlife has been ravaged due to poaching.Don't we all wish that Kenya will follow Tanzania's example? Let's note that the Tanzania's officials were impressed with the results in the trials.

Again the Tanzanian government is not only tackling corruption, but is it also building up Tanzania's infrastructure.Think what an advance this is for Tanzania's rural areas, they will be connected to electricity in the near future. Isn't it a relief to have an African government which really means what it says?

This is marvelous news and again;A clear signal that the Magufuli's government is taking modernization seriously. I expect that Tanzania's economy to grow even faster than before.I can also imagine that Tanzania will be attracting increasingly large amounts of foreign investment.

the public service regulations ban drinking alcohol   or  being drunk during work hours , the minister for home affairs arrived at parliament drunk, accordingly   the president sacked him

 

please see http://allafrica.com...1605220014.html

 

this is a good example of the way things should be and it can very obviously seen that no one gets special favoured treatment

One has to wonder if President Magufuli is governing constitutionally. Furthermore,he seems to have a worrying tendency to do things by whim, other than to think them through.My initial enthusiasm about his rule is beginning to fade.Please note the following articles:  The Economist-Government by gesture, and http://allafrica.com...1606011117.html

If conditions are drastic ,it is probably necessary to be hard and change a lot .  Those with an interest in the way things are now could be reacting to this.

 

perhaps things could be reviewed but continuing with the old ways is not an option
 

as things are now nearly all the national budget is taken up by debt payments  ,please see http://allafrica.com...1606020162.html

 

 

they are now looking at trying to limit smoking, very pleasing and well overdue  please see  http://allafrica.com...1606020161.html

The Tanzanian government is continuing to increase its efforts against the illegal traffic of ivory. As this article points out, it's not only increasing links on international scale but it has also identified 8 more Tanzanian security officers who will be subject to investigation.

One has to take into consideration that Tanzania is using this technology to crack way down on illegal wildlife trafficking. I have no doubt that countries such as Mozambique will also be urged to use these methods to cut down on the number of elephants being slaughtered.
