    Dar Es Salaam — After a prolonged tug of war, the management of RITES, an Indian company that ran the Tanzania Railways Limited (TRL), left for home yesterday, leaving the railway company under the hands of Tanzanians.

    Speaking with TRL workers, the deputy secretary general of the Tanzania Railways Workers Union (Trawu), Mr Christopher Kaziyo, the local management will take over on August 1, this year.


    "This is a victory because for a long time we have been pleading to the government to part with the TRL management," said Mr Kaziyo to a thunderous applause. He said the management of the ailing railway company, which was previously known as the Tanzania Railways Corporation (TRC) before it was privatised to RITES, will be 100 per cent owned and run by Tanzanians.
    He said since RITES took over the railway company has been underperforming with sporadic industrial strikes. After the departure of RITES, the railway company will have to undergo major rehabilitation that will involve heavy investments, said Mr KOne of the TRL employees who asked to remain anonymous, claimed that before privatization, the company had 1,800 cargo wagons but to date it has only 600.
    The privatisation agreement of TRL was signed in October 2007 under the then minister for Infrastructure, Mr Andrew Chenge.

    Waliacha Makampuni ya USA, South Africa, Europe for the Indian Rites ambako kila siku kuna ajali ya treni na wingi wa abiria...
    Walijua hawatachuma pesa kwa hizo nchi nyingine sababu wao wako transparent...

    Yeah na Sasa Chenge anajisafisha bungeni na wabunge wanapiga Makofi... This is sickening...
