    Dar es Salaam.

    The United Nations has relocated some of its operations to temporary offices in Dar es Salaam following destruction caused by recent flooding in the city.
    A statement from the international organisation yesterday indicated that the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and United Nations Industrial Development Organization (Unido) have been forced to relocate.
    According to the statement, floods damaged the UN Compound at Msimbazi Creek which houses the two agencies.
    UNDP and Unido will now be housed at the World Food Programme (WFP) offices on Burundi Street, Mwindu Lane Road, Plot 113, Ada Estate, Kinondoni.

    “Kindly be informed that these agencies may not be able to operate at full capacity until further notice,” read the statement. Similarly, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco) have established their temporary offices at the IOM premises located along Slipway Road, Plot No.1365.
    On Thursday,the permanent secretary in the ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Mr John Haule, told The Citizen on Saturday that the government would work closely with the UN body to find a solution to their office accommodation. The UN had apparently lodged a request for better offices by the State.
