Suluhu Hassan rose to power as the President of Tanzania after the death of his boss Pombe Magufuli. Many have said that she has fit in the position so well and is running the country well.
Just as the late President Magufuli was, Suluhu is also tough and is set to change Tanzania. She has made it clear to anyone that she will do anything that it takes for the people of Tanzania.
Speaking during the police pass-out parade at Boma Kichaka Miba in Tanzania. She made the order that all police with big bellies should undergo fresh training so as to lose them. “I have been observing you at the parade, those leading the march are veteran officers and some of them have big bellies. I have seen the big bellies. I believe we should not have officers with big bellies. They should come back here( for training ) so that they can be light and effective to execute their duties”
This order comes barely a month after she fired the Inspector General of Police Simon Siro at midnight and redeployed him as an envoy. The sacking of the Inspector General brought a lot of criticism from her opposition. Some even went ahead to say that she has picked Magufuli habits of sucking senior civil servants at night.
Suluhu is set to be the President of Tanzania until 2025. The constitution also allows her to run for office for a second term and defend her seat as President. Suluhu will go down in history as the first female President in East Africa.
