The Independence Day celebration was supposed to take place on Friday.
The $445,000 allocated for the event was to be used to construct eight dormitories for children with special needs in elementary schools around the nation, according to Hassan, the nation’s first female president.
She said that the excessive excess of the celebrations had influenced her choice to spend the budgeted funds to complete a more pressing project.
George Simbachawene, the nation’s minister of state, claimed the funds had already been distributed in a statement on Monday.
“The debates and conferences will be preceded by various schedules for regional and district leaders to carry out social activities in different areas including cleaning hospitals, schools, elderly homes, and groups with special needs,” he added.
Through the president’s office, regional administration, and local government, the money will get to the schools (PO-RALG).
The Tanzanian government has postponed the festivities before.
Former president John Magufuli stole cash from the Independence Day celebration in 2015 to build a road in Dar es Salaam, the nation’s commercial center.
He repeated this action in 2020 and instructed that funding for medical facilities be taken from the budget.
