TPA ordered to procure four scanning machines



PRESIDENT John Magufuli has issued a two-month ultimatum to Tanzania Ports Authority (TPA) to purchase four cargo scanning machines at Dar es Salaam Port.

His new directive came after he had visited the port today upon discovering that only two out of four scanning machines were functioning.

The functional two machines, however, have no capacity of handling all goods imported into country through the port, a situation suggesting poor control of cheats by the business people.

Meanwhile, Dr Magufuli directed the TPA management in collaboration with the responsible ministry to hold talks with the Tanzania International Container Terminal Services Ltd (TICTS) with the view to review the contract the company entered with the government in order to make the country benefit more from the deal.
