Speaker resigns after clash with Tanzania president

Tanzania’s parliamentary speaker Job Ndugai has resigned days after clashing with the president over foreign debts.

The speaker said his resignation was a personal and voluntary decision taken in the interests of the nation.

But it came after he said Tanzania was at risk of being auctioned off following President Samia Suluhu’s announcement of a new loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Mr Ndugai issued a public apology to President Samia, which she rejected.

She accused him of playing politics and trying to sabotage her ahead of general elections in 2025.
