    Villagers surrounding Serengeti National Park in Bunda district, Mara region, have applauded the government, through the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, for implementing various development projects in their areas.
    In separate interviews recently, the villagers from Nyamang’uta, Hunyari, Kunzugu and Mcharo wards said the projects were handled to the district government by the Tanzania National Parks Authority (Tanapa).

    Councilors from all the wards promised to cooperate with Tanapa in efforts to conserve natural resources by fighting poaching and other related activities.
    “We wish to thank the government and Tanapa for these social projects, we promise to work together in protecting our natural resources,” said Mcharo ward councillor Julius Marigeti.
    Handing over the completed projects, Serengeti National Park chief conservator Mtango Mtahiko said a total of 180m/- had been spent on the implementation of all the projects.
    He said the completed projects include a house for the district chief medical officer, four classrooms at Kiroreli Primary School, a girls' dormitory at Hunyari Secondary School and a dispensary at Mihale village.
    Mtahiko urged the villagers to ensure that the projects were sustainable, adding that their implementation started in the fiscal year 2008/2009.
    He said the idea was firstly initiated by villagers, who were also required to contribute through cash and manpower.
    He called on the villagers to help in the anti-poaching fight since it affects the tourism sector and reduces national income.
    Bunda district administrative secretary Alphaxard Miyaye thanked Tanapa for the support, saying pupils at Kiroreli would have a comfortable learning environment.
    Tanapa informed that it has handed over projects worth 562.5m/-.
