    Dar among dirtiest cities in Africa, says minister Tuesday, 08 February 2011 22:12

    By Joas Kaijage,
    The Citizen Correspondent
    Bukoba.

    Tanzania commercial capital, Dar es Salaam, is ranked among top dirtiest cities in Africa according to the minister of State in the Vice President's Office responsible for Environment, Ms Tereza Huvisa.

    Ms Huvisa said uncontrolled importation and disposal of plastic materials as well as poor management of waste water, has made Dar es Salaam dirty.

    Speaking recently here, she said plastic waste was not only a big challenge related to urban pollution in Dar es Salaam and other urban centres, but also was in contravention of the Environmental Management Act of 2005 along with stipulated plastics management regulations of the same year.

    Addressing delegates to the Lower Kagera River trans-boundary agro-ecosystem management programme in Bukoba, the minister said urban pollution emanating from uncontrolled waste management did not only impact on urban dwellers but also water catchment areas.

    She said there was a need for stern measures to be taken against those acting in contravention of the Environmental Management Act because uncontrolled importation and use of plastic bags poses further environmental challenges whose consequences have begun to adversely impact on the country.

    "It is in this context that I wish to reiterate the government's decision to designate every Saturday of the month as the ‘Clean the Environment Day' to ensure that everyone builds a culture of ensuring that the environment that surrounds him or her was kept clean," she emphasised.

    She revealed that the launching function of the "Clean Environment Campaign" would be officiated by The Vice-President, Dr Ghalib Bilal on February 12, this year, as a gesture of igniting a countrywide campaign of environment cleanliness.

    Ms Huvisa said environmental degradation turmoil that the world was witnessing at the moment was a wakeup call for governments and the general public to improve their unpalatable ways that pollute the environment and other ecosystems.

    She said it was time for environmental stakeholders to act immediately against causes of environmental pollution.
