    The Member of Parliament for Tanga (CCM) Mr Omari Nundu, has dished out 100m/- loans in his constitutency to help the people fight poverty.

    The money is from Nundu Foundation which he established shortly after he was was elected as Tanga legislator in October last year.

    Speaking in an interview with the ‘Daily News' over the weekend the Nundu Foundation co-ordinator Mr Seleman Omary Mwenduchi said the loans were promised by the MP during campaigns.

    "During the campaigns Nundu promised the voters that if he was elected he would release his salary to them as loans…and that is what he is now doing ..Mr Nundu is a man who delivers on promises," he said.

    Mr Mwenduchi said the MP had been concerned with state of poverty of Tanga residents and he would provide loans and training on entrepreneurship.

    He said the initial process has started including filling in application forms and the next stage would be sorting out forms as well as conducting business skills seminars for all loan seekers.

    "We are talking with business experts…initially we expect them from city council.

    "We are trying to find other experts from other business institutions who will conduct seminars for our people .. we are determined to change their living standards through loans and at the same time be able to return the money," he added.

    Mr Mwenduchi said Nundu Foundation would conduct fund raising events in Tanga, Dar es Salaam and Canada to collect more funds to boost the foundation.

    Mr Nundu who is also the minister for transport when contacted for comment admitted to have launched the programme.
