Tanzania Tourism Ministry overhauled in latest cabinet reshuffle

There is a bit of a reshuffle in the President Samia Suluhu’s Cabinet line-up. This time the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism in Tanzania undergoes a total facelift.

The new Minister of Natural Resources and Tourism is Mohammed Omary Mchengerwa, formerly in the Arts, Sports and Culture docket, according to the dispatch from the State House.

And before moving into Sports and Culture, Mchengerwa used to serve as the Minister in the President’s Office, Public Service Management and Good Governance.

Mchengerwa moves into the new ministry together with the Permanent Secretary, Dr Hassan Abbas who also shifts from the Sports and Culture office into the Tourism docket. Abbas is replacing the former PS, Prof Eliamani Sedoyeka.

It seems to be some sort of an exchange, because the former Natural Resource and Tourism Minister, Ambassador Pindi Chana, shifts into the Sports, Arts and Culture Ministry.

Retired Chief of Defence Forces, General George Marwa Waitara has been reappointed to continue serving as the Chairperson of the Board of Trustees for the Tanzania National Parks.

Meanwhile Said Othman Yakub, who used to serve as Deputy Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Arts, Sports and Culture now becomes a full Permanent Secretary in the office formerly held by Dr Abbas who was moved into the country’s travel industry.

President Samia Suluhu Hassan has also appointed Anthony Diallo, to serve as Chairperson of the Tanzania Fertilizers Regulatory Authority (TFRA).

Diallo is a media mogul behind the Star Television and Radio Free Africa. Some years back he served as the Minister of Natural Resources and Tourism and Member of Parliament for Ilemela, in Mwanza.
