In our continued efforts towards forging closer cooperation with other institutions of higher learning in Zanzibar, on 1 October 2009, the Interim Executive Director, Mr. Muhammad Yussuf, paid a courtesy call on Mr. Kamal Kombo Bakari, the Principal of the Zanzibar Institute for Financial Administration (ZIFA) at Chwaka. Among other important issues, Mr. Yussuf appraised the Principal of ZIFA on the aims and objectives of the newly established ZIRPP and expressed the hope that the two entities would resolve to forge closer cooperation between them for mutual benefit and specifically so in the areas of research and ICT.
In his response, Mr. Bakari expressed his sincere thanks and gratitude to Mr. Yussuf for finding the time to visit ZIFA despite his busy schedule. He further assured the Interim Executive Director that ZIFA would do everything in its power to ensure that the two entities would cooperate in all matters of mutual interest and benefit. He expressed the hope that the two Institutes would be able, at the appropriate time, to sign a Memorandum of Understanding for continued and meaningful cooperation between them.
During this visit, Mr. Yussuf was accompanied by Mr. Jumbe Said Ibrahim, the Interim Financial Manager.
