The enstranged Spreaker for Tanzania’s National Assembly, Job Ndugai, has tendered in his resignation from the top house post.
In an official letter dated on the 6th of January 2022, signed by Job Yustino Ndugai, the former head of the National Assembly in Dodoma, informed members of the public that he was quiting the position on his own accord.
The usually short tempered Job Ndugai also happens to be the member of parliament representing the Kongwa constituency of Dodoma Region, coincidentally where the House is located.
He remains an ordinary legislator.
Without explaining the reason behind his resignation, the former Speaker simpy stated in the brief dispatch that he sent a letter to the Secretary of the National Assembly, informing the latter of his decision.
“I took the decision for National and Party Interests,” wrote Mr Ndugai, without divulging further.
The letter was also sent to the General Secretary of his party, the ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi.
Job Ndugai was recently grilled after he uttered in public that, the country was being steeped deeper in debts due to the government’s excessing loan seeking.
Through widely circulated media clips, the former speaker was heard warning that due to the widening national debt through loans. The entire country of Tanzania risks being auctioned to foreigners.
The statement irked the country President, Samia Suluhu Hassan who wondered why a ‘grown up,’ could utter such statement, especially because the loans decision are stamped through the same parliament operating under Ndugai’s watch.
Then, President Samia threatened to throw overboard all the people in his government that seem to be against what she does, but especially because of the premature 2025 elections’ campaigns.
