Severre still on the bench at ministry

THISDAY REPORTER
Dar es Salaam

THE former powerful director of the wildlife division, Emmanuel Severre, is still on the bench at the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism headquarters in Dar es Salaam - more than a month after being removed from his old position.

Severre, who had a virtual stranglehold on the country's wildlife sector for almost a decade, was finally removed from his post in December last year after remarkably surviving a previous attempt to oust him.

The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, Ms Blandina Nyoni, told THISDAY that Severre has not been assigned any other duties by the government so far.

''He has not been transferred anywhere at the moment. The ministry will assign him his new duties,'' Ms Nyoni said.

The Minister for Natural Resources and Tourism, Prof. Jumanne Maghembe, announced last month that Severre - who served as director of the ministry's wildlife division since April 1999 - would be assigned other duties.

The removal of Severre is understood to have been officially sanctioned by President Jakaya Kikwete himself.

No particular reasons were given for the decision, which came amid growing calls from within and outside the country for urgent reforms to the apparently troubled wildlife sector.

Severre was replaced as director by Erasmus Tarimo, a senior officer in the wildlife division.

According to Prof. Maghembe, the move to replace Severre was a ''collective government decision, including the president and other authorities.''

In 2006, Severre astonishingly survived a move to oust him from the same post by Prof. Maghembe's predecessor as minister, Anthony Diallo.

Diallo's attempt to remove the then powerful director of wildlife was reversed soon afterwards with the explanation that Severre, being a presidential appointee, could only be ousted with the president's blessings.

When asked if the removal of Severre would not also be reversed this time around - as it was in 2006 Prof. Maghembe insisted: ''When I say these changes have been made by the government, I mean just that.''

Kuna mtu anasema Severe ameanza kazi kama mkuu wa Chuo cha Wanyamapori cha Mweka na anawaambia watu hajashushwa cheo bali kapelekwa pale kuparekebisha katika hadhi ya kimataifa

Halisi, yawezekana hivyo ndivyo alivyoambiwa na wakubwa zake si unajua hata wakubwa hawawezi kumuambia mtu ukweli (kumkoma nyani giledi) wanabakia kutunga kisa cha uongo. Sitashangaa hata barua yake ya kutolewa Misitu iliremmbeshwa kwa maneno ya shukrani, kama ile barua ya JK wakati amepokea kujiuzulu kwa Ka' Ditto..
