    Tanzania is fighting corruption, says Mkapa

    Thursday, 25 May, 2000

    The President of Tanzania, Benjamin Mkapa, has defended the work of his administration in tackling corruption.

    Speaking in a BBC interview, Mr Mkapa said his government had strengthened the anti-corruption squad and had adopted a strategy to rid the country of graft.

    But he said Tanzania did not have the resources to tackle the problem decisively -- that would mean paying civil servants more, and improving conditions for the police and judiciary.

    He said he had no evidence of corruption among top government or ruling party officials -- but promised to take action if he was given evidence of this. President Mkapa made a pledge to eradicate corruption when he came to power five years ago, but correspondents say it remains rife.

    Of all the people not him to deal with corruption. He might be at the fore front of it. Kama sivyo atueleze imekuwaje amekubali hasara zote zilizoletwa na rushwa wakati wa kipindi chake
