Haji pledges to fight corruption, terrorism

NEWLY appointed Zanzibar’s commissioner of police Mohamed Hassan Haji has pledged to fight corruption while keeping terrorism at bay. 

Inspector General of Police, Simon Sirro.

Speaking after he was sworn-in by Tanzania’s Inspector General of Police, Simon Sirro, Haji said he will work towards ensuring peace for Tanzania and Zanzibar.

The commissioner who was appointed last week by President John Magufuli also took a public leadership ethical oath before the Secretary of Public Service, John Kaole.

The Inspector General called on Haji to address issues of terrorism and all its forms to ensure peace for all as well as deal with all corruption cases among the force in the island.

While clarifying on the issue of terrorism, Haji said he will not leave any stone unturned while examining cases that could have links with terrorism, such as cases of armed robbery.

“Terrorism is a global threat and it’s causing countries sleepless nights and that’s why I advise you to keep a close look at this issue,”said Sirro.

Secretary of Public Service, John Kaole asked Haji to ensure that the force works in accordance with the ethical practices as enshrined in the country’s public service code of conduct.
