A press statement issued today and signed by the Director of the Presidential Communication unit Gerson Msigwa said that, president Magufuli has expressed his disappointment for the non commitments on orders he issued to some Ambassadors accredited in foreign countries. However, he also noted that, he is amazed over their failure to give him comprehensive reports of their work performances and the benefits which Tanzania gets from the countries they represent. “I want to know exactly what benefits has Tanzania attained as a result of their stay throughout the period, and whoever fails to bring benefits back in the country, they are liable to be returned and another person is appointed to take on the responsibility”, says the president as quoted in a press statement.
