Tanzania’s President Samia Hassan has ordered fresh training for pot-bellied immigration officers to make them more agile.
She made the remarks in Swahili on Monday, during a passing-out parade for new officers.
“I was looking at the parade – those who were leading the officers look experienced, but among them I saw pot bellies,” she said.
“They should return here to remove the pot bellies, to become more agile in executing their roles.”
Rais Samia Suluhu Hassan amewataka askari wa uhamiaji ambao wana vitambi warudi chuoni kuviondoa na kuwa wakakamavu.
