TCCIA fires president picks interim team

Tanzania Chamber of Commerce Industries and Agriculture (TCCIA) has picked an interim leadership and governing board member who will serve for six months till the general election.

“Special Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in Morogoro unanimously reached a consensus of dissolving the board of directors after incompetence and appointing new interim members who will work for six months until the general election is conducted,” Mr Vicent Minja, TCCIA acting Vice President told journalists in Dar es Salaam on Tuesday.

Mr Minja, who was speaking on behalf of TCCIA acting President Mr Edmund Mkwawa, said suspending the former board came after the persistence of various misunderstandings among its members which the special AGM deemed not healthy to push the chamber’s interests forward.

He said the expelled board had conflicts of interest, which crippled the function of TCCIA.

It also went parallel with sacking the former president of the Chamber Mr Paul Koyi, who was last year suspended to pave the way for investigation of various accusations and incompetence.

“TCCIA’s national governing council decided to form the committee of inquiry on various accusations, this committee advised on various measures which were to be taken, including dissolving the governing board,” he said.

Mr Minja added that such conflicts had negative consequences for its 23,000 members who were left at the crossroads unknowing which way to take.

Mr Minja said the conflict denies TCCIA membership fees and enrolling new members.

Others five members elected to the board are Mr Eric Sichinga Vice President of Commerce, Mr Charles Chenza Vice President of Agriculture, and Mr Vicent Minja Vice President of Industry.

Others are Dr Kingu Said Mtemi, Ms Eutropia James, and Mrs Mwanahamisi Hussein who is TCAA governing board’s Secretary.
