The speaker of Tanzania’s parliament has called for the resignation of the auditor general over his alleged statement of contempt against parliament while in the US.
”Our problem is the words that Prof Musa Juma Assad spoke in the United States, and recently when he called reporters in Dodoma and told them he would continue making the same statement. We condemn his remarks,” said Prof Job Ndugai.
The auditor general said that the Tanzanian parliament was weak.
The speaker said Prof Assad was summoned and grilled by a parliamentary committee, but he maintained his statement and now members of parliament do not want to work with him.
Prof Ndugai said that the auditor general was in contempt of parliament for his “careless remarks” against parliament.
