Uzini House of Representative Mohamed Raza takes oath before the Speaker of House of Representative Pandu Ameir Kificho (2nd R) in Zanzibar yesterday.

Uzini Representative Mohammed Raza has pledged to use his salary, allowances and pension to improve the social and economic development of his constituency.

Apart from allowances, Raza said the 4m/- monthly salary and 63m/- pension provided to all House of Representatives upon their retirement would be used to develop a number of projects in his constituency in fulfillment of electoral pledge.

Raza, who was elected in a by-election held last month made the pledge here yesterday when addressing journalists and a delegation of Chama cha Mapinduzi zealots shortly after being sworn in by Speaker of the Zanzibar House of Representatives.

During his campaign, he said, he and his family made a number of promises, adding that it was now time to fulfill them.

“Even before I took the oath, a promised that I would start working on my promises within four months after my victory. A number of projects are currently being undertaken on which I have spent more than 50m/- to ensure their completion,” he said.

Raza explained that since being elected as the representative of Uzini constituency he had dished out 20m/- to support the construction of infrastructure, 20m/- to support 25 sports clubs and 12.9m/- on water projects in the area.

The by-election in Uzini constituency was held after the incumbent Rep, Khamis Mussa Silima, died following a road accident in Dodoma last August 12.
