Daniel Chongolo, the secretary general of Tanzania's ruling party Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM), has resigned, the party announced Wednesday.

The resignation of Chongolo was announced by Paul Makonda, CCM's ideology and publicity secretary, at the end of a two-day meeting of the party's National Executive Committee (NEC) held in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania's commercial hub.

"The chairperson of CCM, President Samia Suluhu Hassan, informed the NEC meeting that she had received a resignation letter from the secretary general and she has endorsed the resignation," Makonda told a news conference at the end of the NEC meeting.

Makonda did not explain the reasons for Chongolo's resignation.

Chongolo was appointed the party's secretary general in April 2021.
