The Tanzanian government is contemplating the possibility of immortalizing President Samia Suluhu Hassan by including her image on the country’s currency. Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa revealed this development during a session at the Parliament in Dodoma on Thursday, responding to a question posed by Special Seat MP Ng’wasi Kamani.

PM Majaliwa elaborated that the decision to incorporate leaders’ portraits on currency notes involves a collaborative effort between government officials and the Central Bank. He clarified that the proposal has been introduced in Parliament and will undergo thorough review and discussion before any official decision is reached.

“The decision to feature leaders’ photographs on currency aims to commemorate their contributions to the nation,” stated the Prime Minister. He referenced the current images on Tanzanian currency, which notably depict the late Father of the Nation, Julius Kambarage Nyerere, and the first President of Zanzibar. These images serve as a testament to the historical significance of these leaders and their enduring legacy.

President Samia Suluhu Hassan made history as Tanzania’s first female President following the passing of her predecessor, the late President John Magufuli, in March 2021. Since assuming office, President Samia has garnered widespread recognition for her leadership and efforts to steer the country forward.

The proposal to feature President Samia’s image on currency notes underscores the government’s acknowledgment of her historic presidency and significant contributions to Tanzania. If approved, this initiative would serve as a symbolic representation of President Samia’s enduring impact on the nation’s history and governance.
