Kenyans showcase their hilarious cost cutting measures-#WhatWouldMagufuliDo?
Newly elected President John Pombe Magufuli has already set himself apart as an expert in cost cutting.
From the moment he was inaugurated, the Tanzanian head of state has gone about cutting public spending in various sectors. From suspending the country’s Independence Day celebrations to reportedly reducing his parliamentary house address to less than 30 minutes, Magufuli declared that the Tanzanian people needed less talk and more action.
The Bulldozer as he is nicknamed also banned unnecessary foreign travel for ministers and all government officials. Just last week, Magufuli slashed the cost of a party to inaugurate the new parliament from an estimated Ksh10.2 million to Ksh700,000.
With such an impressive record in a short time, Kenyans have joined Tanzanians on Twitter in taking him as a role model in all matters budgeting.
Through the hashtag #WhatWouldMagufuliDo, they have given their opinion on how best to follow in the bulldozer’s footsteps.
Here are some of the tweets:
-My girlfriend wanted money for eye-liner, I asked myself #WhatWouldMagufuliDo ; we used office marker pens instead
-I wanted to buy deodorant but I asked myself #WhatWouldMagufuliDo .. *sprays office air freshener*
-I was about to make a call and remembered #WhatWouldMagufuliDo, I have just sent a Please Call Me.
