TANZANIA Social Action Fund (TASAF) has said some 70 per cent of poor households in the country so far benefited from the programme. The targeted households have been reached as the programme is on its third phase.
Mr Mkuchika said the programme faced myriads of challenges, the main one is unfaithful local government officers registering unqualified beneficiaries. “I direct all executive directors and officers of towns, districts, municipalities of all regions to sack or take legal measures to all unfaithful (TASAF) coordinators prior to my tour of duty,” he said.
Mr Mkuchika was in Tanga for a one-day official tour of the region. The minister, among other duties, received the region TASAF III report. Earlier while presenting the report, Tanga Region Administrative Secretary, Eng Zena Saidi, said a total of 30.41bn/- has been disbursed to 55,703 households under TASAF III project in the region
