Tanzania: Donors warn on corruption inertia

Foreign donors have warned the Tanzanian government that it must take stronger action in fighting public corruption and improving governance, especially in the energy, mining and health sectors. Swedish ambassador Lennarth Hjelmåker told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in an interview in Dar es Salaam that “there has been stagnation in the fight against corruption, including a lack of movement on specific anti-corruption cases in key sectors like health, the port and energy”. Hjelmåker chairs a group of donors made up of the African Development Bank, Canada, Denmark, the European Commission, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Britain and the World Bank that have committed $560m in general budget support – 5% of the total budget – to Tanzania this year.
