Tanzanian Female President Samia Suluhu Hassan has been tagged as a no-nonsense leader after she sacked a government appointee just a day into his job.
H.E Samia Suluhu Hassan reportedly fired Tanzania’s Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC) director-general, Thobias Mwesiga, just hours after appointing him.
Reports from local news papers say Thobias Mwesiga was appointed director-general of the Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC) on Sunday, April 4 and was sacked on Monday, April 5.
He was replaced by Mr. James Mataragio, who was reinstated to the position.
A statement released by the Tanzanian State house was quoted to have said;
“President Samia Suluhu Hassan has revoked the appointment of the director-general of the Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC), Thobias Mwesiga, who was appointed on April 4, 2021. Following the decision, President Samia has reinstated James Mataragio to be the TPDC director-general. Mataragio was the DG of TPDC before Mwesiga’s appointment.”
