Tanzania: PM Wants Measures to Achieve Pollution-Free Society

PRIME Minister Kassim Majaliwa has instructed ministry responsible for environment to closely work with the religious leaders in efforts to review the laws and regulations, which realise noise-pollution-free society.

Majaliwa issued directives while opening the national workshop on effects of noise pollution.

The workshop, which was organised by the National Environment Management Council (NEMC), was attended by different stakeholders including religious leaders from different regions countrywide.

Also, PM counselled the religious leaders to fully participate in the move, adding that their role and involvement was critical and would be highly appreciated by the government and the community at large.

“The goverment acknowledges the religious leaders’ efforts to protect the environment and rebukes the immorality in the country,” he complemented.

Mr Majaliwa continued saying that the government has faith in the religious leaders and shall always work hand in hand with them in addressing community issues.

In a related development, he congratulated the minister responsible for environment and the committee for coordinating the workshop, and religious leaders and other stakeholders for showing up in large numbers, noting that their participation was a good sign for success of the event.

Prior to PM addressing the workshop’s participants, Minister in the Vice-President Office (Union and Environment), Dr Selemani Jaffo, hailed the NEMC and religious leaders for jointly organising the forum.
