Ministers on the spot in CJ security controversy

The Citizen "Dar es Salaam. Two government ministers were yesterday at pains to explain why retired Chief Justice Augustino Ramadhani’s security detail has been withdrawn.

Mr Shamsi Vuai Nahodha of Home Affairs and Mathias Chikawe of Good Governance told The Citizen they were not aware of that development.

In a phone interview, Mr Nahodha said he would seek audience with police chiefs to establish what had happened.
“I want to assure you that that (when the information was revealed on Tuesday) it was the first time I heard of the news and I was surprised too, because the regulations are clear,” the minister said."
