Dar es Salaam (Arabic: دار السلام [translation: "Abode of Peace"] Dār as-Salām, cf. "Yer u-salem"), formerly Mzizima, is the largest city in Tanzania. With a population estimated around 2,500,000, it is also the country's richest city and a regionally important economic centre. Though Dar es Salaam lost its official status as capital city to Dodoma in 1996, it remains the centre of the permanent central government bureaucracy and continues to serve as the capital for the surrounding Dar es Salaam Region. The population is increasing at a rate of 4.39% annually (the 3rd fastest in Africa and the 9th fastest in the world). The metro population is expected to reach 5.12 million by 2020.

(Maelezo ya picha chini ) The Foundation Stone Laying Ceremony for the Project for Widening of Kilwa Road On March 14, 2007, the Foundation Stone Laying ceremony for the project for Widening of Kilwa Road, which has been assisted under the Japan's grant aid, was held in Dar es Salaam. H.E. Mr. Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, the President of the United Republic of Tanzania, Honourable Andrew Chenge, Minister for Infrastructure Development, other dignitaries, H.E. Mr. Makoto Ito, Ambassador of Japan, and many people in surrounding area attended the ceremony. President Kikwete in his speech commended Japan for the long time assistance to Tanzania in various sectors including road, energy, health, and education. President Kikwete appreciated the cooperation of Japan for widening of the road and said it would have a very big impact to the economy and social life of the people. After delivering his speech, the President, cut the tape to mark official beginning of the construction works. The Project for widening of Kilwa Road is to widen 11.6 km of the road, which is one of the four main roads in Dar es Salaam from the city centre to the suburbs. The Government of Japan decided to provide 1.15 billion yen equivalent to approximately 12.85 billion Tanzanian Shillings for the phase one of the project. Due to the rapid expansion of the city and remarkable increase of the vehicles, the people in Dar es Salaam are facing serious traffic congestions. It is expected that through the implementation of this project, it would lead to easing congestion, ensuring the safety of vehicles and people, improvement of convenience of transport and development of the area.
