  • Description

    THE NEW 20-MAN CABINET OF TANZANIA WAS SWORN IN BY PRESIDENT NYERERE IN THE DRAWING ROOM OF THE STATE HOUSE IN THE CAPITAL, DAR ES SALAAM ON SATURDAY.

    THE NEW CABINET CONSISTS OF TWO VICE-PRESIDENTS AND 18 MINISTERS.

    THE FOREIGN AFFAIRS PORTFOLIO IS HELD BY PRESIDENT NYERERE HIMSELF.

    THE ELECTION, CONDUCTED LAST MONTH, WAS THE FIRST SINCE TANZANIA BECAME INDEPENDENT IN 1961.

    UNDER THE ONE-PARTY SYSTEM ADOPTED IN TANZANIA, ELECTORS VOTED FOR 101 MEMBERS OF THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY.

    ALL CANDIDATES WERE SPONSORED BY THE TANGANYIKA AFRICAN NATIONAL UNION (T.A.N.U.)
    VOTERS ALSO BALLOTED IN PLEBISCITE-STYLE FOR THE PRESIDENCY, THE SOLE CANDIDATE BEING PRESIDENT NYERERE.

    ONE INTERESTING FIGURE IN THE CABINET IS MR. PAUL BOMANI, FORMER MINISTER FOR FINANCE, WHO WAS DEFEATED IN THE ELECTION BY JUST OVER 4,500 VOTES.

    MR. BOMANI HAS BEEN MADE MINISTER FOR ECONOMIC AFFAIRS AND DEVELOPMENT PLANNING, APPARENTLY IN CONTRAVENTION OF THE TANZANIAN CONSTITUTION, WHICH BARS A DEFEATED CANDIDATE FROM APPOINTMENT EITHER AS A MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT OF CABINET MINISTER.
