RC orders evaluation of all projects for viability

​​​​​​​RUVUMA Regional Commissioner Christina Mndeme has called upon the local councils in the region to make sure all development projects are inspected and receive evaluation to ascertain there is ‘value for money’ in them.

Mndeme issued the directives at the weekend when opening a special sitting of the Councillors’ Meeting at Tunduru that discussed the report of the Controller and Auditor General (CAG) on issues raised therein and recommendations on the accounts of the Office of the Regional Administration and Local Government (RALG) for the Financial Year 2018/20.

RC Mndeme instructed the Ruvuma Regional Administrative Secretary (RAS) Steven Ndaki to make sure all development projects in the region’s eight local councils are inspected and assessment made thereon.

“In case of negligence due to poor implementation I need to be informed on the appropriate steps taken to negligent officials before September 30 this year,” she stressed.

She also said she should be informed on the reason for the issues that have been raised persistently in the CAG report and be given a list of relevant officials and their ranks and steps taken against them before June 30 this year.

In the sitting, RC Mndeme hailed councillors, members of parliament and councils’ experts in Tunduru District for having received a clean certificate according to the CAG Report ending 30 2019.

This is the fifth time consecutively for Tunduru District Council to receive a clean certificate beginning FY 2014/15 and Mndeme stressed this has to be a motivation for doing much better.
