Magufuli adds weight to war on drugs – The Herald

John Magufuli

DAR ES SALAAM. President John Magufuli yesterday added weight on the crackdown on narcotics, directing the national security and defence forces to apprehend all suspects irrespective of their status.Nobody should be spared in this war against illicit drugs; no matter how famous or what status that person has in the society, Dr Magufuli ordered. He stressed further, Be it a politician, minister, a police officer, a son or daughter of a big wig, the law should follow its course.

Even if it is my wife dealing in drugs she should face the music.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces commended Inspector General of Police (IGP) Ernest Mangu for his bold move to suspend police officers who were recently accused by Dar es Salaam Regional Commissioner (RC) Paul Makonda of cooperating with drugs dealers.

I know there was a lot of pressure on you from some people who made phone calls, but you stood firm, otherwise you wouldnt be here today as the IGP. The drugs have effects on the young workforce but are still being sold like groundnuts.

I usually get very upset when law enforcement agencies are accused for wrongdoing but I am happy that you took actions. The war on drugs is tough but we must fight it, Dr Magufuli told the IGP.

He directed security and defence forces to act tough on the whole chain involved in the illicit drugs, starting with the underdogs and eventually drug barons.

Those using and peddling the narcotics will have to mention the whole supply chain, he stated.

Dr Magufuli also tasked the Acting Chief Justice, Prof Ibrahim Juma, to expedite the trials of drug-related cases currently pending at courts.

There is a suspected drug kingpin currently being detained in Lindi but I wonder why he is not produced in courts for prosecution, wondered the president. Although Dr Magufuli did not mention the suspect he was apparently referring to Ali Khatib Haji, alias Shkuba (46), a suspected drug baron who was arrested in 2014 and is currently remanded in the Lindi prison.

President Magufuli disclosed as well that he had agreed to hand over the MV Dar es Salaam ship, initially meant to carry passengers between Dar es Salaam and Bagamoyo, to the TPDF to enable the army to intercept drugs and smuggled goods in the Indian Ocean.

As per request by the former Chief of Defence Force General Davis Mwamunyange, I decided to hand over the ship to the army to intensify patrols against drug traffickers and smugglers in the Indian Ocean, President Magufuli noted.

The President was speaking at the swearing-in of the newly appointed Chief of Defence Forces (CDF) General Venance Mabeyo and Chief of Staff Lieutenant General James Mwakibolwa at State House in Dar es Salaam.

Dr Magufuli also swore in the Commissioner General of the Prisons Department, Dr Ally Malewa, Secretary of the Public Service Commission, Mr Nyakimura Muhoji and two ambassadors, Paul Mella and Samuel Shelukindo.

Last Friday, IGP Mangu suspended 12 police officers, pending investigations, over their alleged links to drugs dealers in Dar es Salaam. The suspension came only few days after the Dar es Salaam RC had issued a list of suspects of drug dealers and facilitators, including the law enforcers and local celebrities in the music and movie industries. – Tanzania Daily News.

How the Post-it note helps the public service evade scrutiny

The humble Post-It note has emerged as a powerful weapon used by the Australian Public Service to avoid Parliamentary scrutiny and Freedom of Information laws.

The use of the ubiquitous yellow stationery has become widespread in Commonwealth workplaces as an aide memoir for bureaucrats which, unlike formal file notes, can “fall off” official records when the information threatens to embarrass their department.

Record-keeping in government departments were thrown into the spotlight last week when one of the nations’ most senior public servants told a Senate Committee that he had lost his notes of a highly politically sensitive meeting.

Opposition and Greens senators seeking access to the file note kept by Attorney General’s Department Secretary Chris Moraitis were disappointed when the Canberra veteran told them the document, notes of a meeting with Human Rights Commission Chief Gillian Triggs, had been in a briefcase he had lost.

But former APS insiders have told Fairfaxthe requirements for public servants to keep full notes are often “observed” by jotting relevant information on Post-It notes and sticking them to the file.

“The benefit of a Post-it note is that it can fall off a folio in a file whenever you want it to fall off,” one veteran of several departments said.

“It’s not FOI-able then, there’s no form of record.

Irshad Manji at Wanderlust Whistler’s Speakeasy Lecture Series 2012 – Video

Irshad Manji at Wanderlust Whistler's Speakeasy Lecture Series 2012
The New York Times calls Irshad Manji “Osama bin Laden's worst nightmare.” Oprah Winfrey's magazine has given Irshad its first annual Chutzpah Award for “audacity, nerve, boldness and conviction.” She takes both as compliments. Irshad is Director of the Moral Courage Project at New York University's School of Public Service. The project teaches young leaders to challenge intellectual conformity and self-censorship. She is also a senior fellow with the European Foundation for Democracy, which promotes universal human rights and freedom of conscience. We were very honored to have Irshad visit us at Wanderlust Stratton to discuss unity, community, and communication. She opened the floor to questions about “Islam! Everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask” and what ensued was an extremely honest and participatory discussion about how we can create greater understanding and compassion in our world. She recently spoke on a panel (Sept 2012) with His Holiness the Dalai Lama about finding the “Common Ground for Peace”, and even more recently (Nov 2012) was awarded the “Humanist of the Year” Award from the Society for Ethical Culture. We encourage you to learn more about her Moral Courage Project, by signing up on her website and fanning up the social media pages below: http://www.irshadmanji.com http://www.facebook.com twitter.com Wanderlust Festival is also endebted to Hay House (www.hayhouse.com) who helped us realize the entire 2012 Speakeasy Lecture Series across all four …From:WanderlustFestivalViews:3 0ratingsTime:01:11:34More inTravel Events
