Tanzania’s President Samia Suluhu Hassan announced on Saturday that the government had decided to increase the age of dependency on health insurance from 18 to 21 years.
Suluhu announced this during this year’s Labor Day celebrations at CCM Kirumba Stadium in the Mwanza region of Tanzania.
The Tanzanian President also said that despite its desire to raise salaries, the government cannot currently do so due to a number of challenges including the COVID-19 outbreak.
However, she announced that the government would cut the PAYE tax by one percent from the current 9% to 8%.
Suluhu also ordered the remuneration of all officials who had previously been dismissed for class 7 dropouts.
She added that the delay in paying retirement benefits makes her sad and longs for every retired employee to be paid immediately.
This happens one day after the ruling Tamaas party, Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM), confirmed President Samia Suluhu Hassan as chairman of the party and replaced former President John Magufuli, who died in March.
