SIMIYU: MEMBER of the CCM’s National Executive Committee (NEC), Mr Emmanuel Gungu, has appealed to elected political leaders to resolve people’s challenges instead of complaining to the government.
Mr Gungu made the plea today when donated two motorcycles to game wardens at Maswa Reserved Forest in efforts to curb wild animals’ attacks in Kisesa constituency.
He has donated the motorcycles after request from the residents in the constituency.
They requested for the motorcycles to strengthen control of the wild animals’ attacks which damage their properties.
At the public rally which brought together ward councilors and residents, Mr Gungu also promised to speak to other stakeholders so as to get more than 10 motorcycles for the area.
“Even ward councilor has an opportunity to address challenges facing the citizens instead of keeping on complaining. Councilor is part of council’s meeting where he or she can present citizens’ concerns for seeking solution,” he argued.
He emphasized that the leaders should help President Samia in addressing the challenges facing the citizens.
“It is not right that the President does everything while there are her aides. The President has many things,” he said.
Conservation Officer at Maswa Reserved Forest, Mr Lawrence Okode, thanked Mr Gungu for donating the motorcycles which he said would help in reducing animal attacks since the game wardens would be using them for patrolling.
Tindabuligi ward councilor, Ms Tabu Maghembe, thanked President Samia Suluhu Hassan for endorsing 1.8bn/- for implementing various development projects at the ward.
