Dar es Salaam (Agenzia Fides) - "We have to recognise the good leadership of our national leaders in restoring ethics, integrity and the rule law", said His Exc. Mgr. Juda Thadeus Ruwaichi, Archbishop of Mwanza (Tanzania) in an interview with the Daily News in which he expressed appreciation for the measures taken by the government to fight corruption in politics and in society.
Mgr. Ruwaichi said he supports all actions taken by the leadership of the so-called "Fifth phase government". The "Fifth phase government " intends to give value to local resources to make less use of foreign donees, increasing industrial production, rural electrification and distibution of social services, in particular educational ones.
A central part of the economic development plans of the Tanzanian government is made up of the fight against corruption and the establishment of ethical rules to which both servants of the State, entrepreneurs and workers in the private sector must follow.
Thanks to the efforts undertaken in recent years the Tanzanian GDP has increased by 7% a year. (L.M.) (Agenzia Fides 05/04/2016)
