Tanzania’s unprecedented effectiveness in the implementation of major projects has roots in the country’s newly found self-belief, discipline and zero tolerance to corruption, TPJ has learnt.

Speaking at the official opening of Terminal Three building at the Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar es Salaam recently, President John Magufuli said discipline in public spending and zero tolerance on corruption have helped in curbing theft and loopholes that facilitated embezzlement of public monies, and that self-belief and decisive action towards what was in the nation’s best interests enabled the Government to accumulate funds towards important major projects.

“[All we need] is self-belief and a firm decision to act, otherwise we will keep depending on others for implementation of our development projects, “said Dr. Magufuli, during the televised ceremony.

The president told the audience at the TZS 722 billion facility that those factors, coupled with effective management of public funds, were behind Tanzania’s remarkable success in meeting various objectives including purchase of new aircraft at a total cost of TZS 1.03 trillion, construction of 15 airports at a total cost of TZS 1.868, installation of four radars at four major airports at a total cost of TZS 67 billion, construction of TZS 7.5 trillion standard gauge railway, the Ubungo interchange project worth TZS 247 billion and the TZS 270 billion bridge to link Coco Beach – Aga Khan Hospital  in Dar es Salaam.

Others include the expansion of Dar es Salaam’s  harbor at TZS 1.2 trillion, the  TZS 699 billion Kigongo – Busisi Bridge on a section of Lake Victoria, construction of ships to ply the country’s major lakes at a cost of TZS 172.3 billion and construction of an eight-lane Kimara – Kibaha highway costing TZS  140 billion.

Dr. Magufuli said Tanzania was not poor and challenged wanachi to grab various available opportunities to increase their incomes and production in various sectors.
