    Serengeti District Council Executive Director (DED) Mr Kimulika Galikunga

    The Management of Grumeti Reserves Ltd on Monday said it will solicit funds from global institutions including the World Bank to support construction of the
    Serengeti District Government Hospital in Mara Region.

    "Construction of Mugumu District Hospital is one of the important and huge projects that we will go out and encourage the global community to support," Grumeti Reserves Managing Director Mr Graham Ledger told the ‘Daily News' in an exclusive interview here over the weekend.

    The move is stipulated in a Joint Venture Agreement(JVA) to be signed by the
    Serengeti District Council and the company this week, according to the Mr Ledger.

    "We are now waiting for proper plans from the District Executive Director(DED) so that we can go ahead facilitating in finding global institutions that will be interested and able to finance completion of the project," the MD said.

    Construction work of the District Hospital is already underway in Mugumu town,
    Serengeti District's headquarters.

    The Prime Minister, Mr
    Mizengo Pinda, had visited the project mid last month and committed more funds to support the project during the next financial year (2012-2013).

    Construction of the hospital is estimated to cost 13bn/- upon it's completion, according to Serengeti District Council Executive Director (DED) Mr Kimulika Galikunga.

    Meanwhile Grumeti Reserves Ltd has spent close to 90 million US dollars for the construction of a police post at Natta ward in Serengeti District, according to the Grumeti Fund Managing Director, Mr Brian Harris.

    The company is owned by Paul Tudor Jones, a US tycoon who has invested heavily on tourism and conservation sectors in Western Serengeti. The company owns and runs three luxurious lodges of Sasakwa, Farufu and Sabora.

    The US investors also injects part of funds generated from the lodges to support community development projects in Serengeti and Bunda districts with education, water and health getting top priority.

    The move is meant to make communities surrounding its area of operation realize the importance of conservation and stop poaching among other things.
