During Monday’s ceremony, the president also swore in newly reappointed Minister for Finance and Planning, Philip Mpango, and Minister for Foreign Affairs and East African Cooperation, Palamagamba Kabudi.
President Magufuli said he reappointed the two ministers to keep the country moving in financing projects and implementation of foreign policies.
Magufuli after swearing in the officers said in his address at Chamwino State House, in the capital Dodoma, that he was not in a hurry to appoint his new cabinet.
