“I order our defence and security organs to continue strengthening inspection, law enforcement and apprehend drivers who frequently break the law and traffic rules, leading people to lose their lives,” Dr Samia wrote on X (formerly Twitter) platform on Saturday evening.

Dr Samia also called on motorists to follow traffic laws, saying: “These accidents take the lives of our loved ones, national workforce and family members. I continue to call upon everyone to follow traffic laws in the use of vehicles.” Likewise, she used the platform to send her condolences to the families of those, who lost their lives in the crash. “I have received with sadness the information of the deaths of 25 people in crash which involved four cars in Ngaramtoni area, Arusha Region.

In a related development, President of Zanzibar, Dr Hussein Mwinyi also sent his condolences to the families of those who lost their lives in accident and to Tanzanians as whole.

According to statement issued by the Isle’s Chief Government’s Spokesperson, Charles Hillary yesterday, Dr Mwinyi received with sadness the information of accident that claimed 25 people in Arusha.

May the God rest their souls in peace. Amen! read part of the statement. Meanwhile, President Dr Samia sent her condolences to Minister for Home Affairs Engineer Hamad Masauni following the death of his father, Mr Yussuf Masauni, who passed away last Friday.

“Sorry for the Home Affairs Minister, who is also a Member of Parliament for Kikwajuni constituency, Eng Hamad Masauni, your family, relatives and friends for the death of your father, Mr Yussuf Masauni. May Almight God give you patience in this difficult time…,” Dr Samia posted on X.

In Early December 2023, Home Affairs Deputy Minister Jumanne Sagini directed Traffic Division Commander along with other law enforcement organs to take stern measures against the negligent motorists including revoking their licences.

Mr Sagini’s directives were a response to an accident in Manyoni District, Singida Region, which killed 13 and left 32 people injured.

Mr Sagini underlined that suspending licences of drivers who violate the road traffic regulations and road signs will reduce accidents and deaths caused by reckless drivers. The deputy minister issued the directives immediately after arriving at the scene of the accident, including visiting the injured in Manyoni, where the accident occurred.

“I direct the Traffic Division Commander through departments under the Regional Traffic Officers (RTOs), to be strict and stop being too lenient with reckless drivers,” Home Affairs Deputy Minister emphasised.

Adding: “All traffic laws enforcement organs including the Land Transport Regulatory Authority (LATRA) and Police must take decisive action to save Tanzanians from losing their lives from accidents like this one which happened here in Manyoni due to driver’s negligence.” “The impact of the collision with the train to the extent of pushing the train out of its rails clearly shows that the bus driver was speeding,” he said.
