Tanzania's Opposition Finally Congratulates President Samia Suluhu After Her Latest Political Move

Tanzania's opposition party has congratulated President Samia Suluhu Hassan for appointing her new vice president.

President Suluhu appointed the Minister for Finance Philip Mpango to be her vice president following the death of president Magufuli which saw her being sworn in as the new president. As the constitution stipulates, after a vice president is sworn in as a new president, he/she is supposed to appoint a new vice president to take the position.

Following this move by president Samia, Tanzania's Alliance for Change & Transformation (ACT) party has congratulated both the president and the appointed vice president. Taking to Twitter, Zitto Kabwe, the ACT party leader has expressed his gratitude for the duo saying that the move is one of the great actions that show the constitution is being followed.

"My heartfelt congratulations to Dr Philip Mpango for being a Vice President-elect of The United Republic of Tanzania. Kudos to President Samia Suluhu for fulfilling constitutional duty smoothly and with tact." Zitto Kabwe posted.

The party boss further said that he is hopeful that the democracy of the United Republic of Tanzania will be restored.

"It is my hope that two of you will ensure our democracy is restored," he added.
