John Magufuli monitoring officials’ phone calls
President John Magufuli said his recent decision to move Dr Zainab Chaula to the Ministry of Health from the Local Government ministry was partly the result of phone conversations he heard between her and the Health minister Ms Ummy Mwalimu.
“When I tracked the telephone message communication between the Minister of Health and Dr Chaula, I noticed a strain in their working relationship. So to make their quarrels come to a stop, I decided to place them under the same ministry,” the president said.
Magufuli warned new appointees that he had noted that there were quarrels on various decisions in his government, telling them: “I am watching them. This should stop”.
