Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu Hassan on Monday urged the Tanzania People’s Defense Forces (TPDF) to fight against new crimes, including acts of terrorism, especially along the country’s borders.

Hassan, who doubles as the country commander-in-chief of the armed forces, said TPDF should work closely with other security agencies in making sure that the country is safe from new crimes, including terrorism.

“The TPDF should also work closely with other institutions such as the media and civil society organizations in the fight against terrorism,” she said when she opened TPDF’s annual general meeting at Lugalo Barracks in the commercial capital Dar es Salaam.

“As the commander-in-chief of the armed forces, I will make sure that the army is fully facilitated to enable it to fulfil its responsibilities of fighting new crimes, including terrorism,” said Hassan.

Hassan commended TPDF for its continued unwavering defense of the country, which has provided room for people to work in peaceful environment. Enditem
