DAR ES SALAAM. – Tanzania President Samia Suluhu has directed that police officers with big bellies return to training to lose weight.
President Suluhu stated that in order for police officers to be effective at doing their jobs, they should not have large bellies during remarks made to commemorate the completion of the training of officers in Boma Kichaka Miba, in Tanga on Monday
“As I was inspecting the parade, I noticed those leading the march were veteran officers and among them were big-bellied officers. I have seen big bellies. We are not supposed to have officers with big bellies.”
She stated that the officers in question should get back to the training facility and get fresh training to make them fit.
“They should come back here (for training) so that they shed them off and be swift again in executing their duties,” added the head of Kenya’s southern neighbour. Ms.Suluhu took over the country’s presidency following the death of president John Pombe Magufuli in March last year. – CitizenDigital
