    Traffic jam has, to everybody's surprise, temporarily shifted from Dar es Salaam to Moshi following an abrupt increase of motor vehicles, especially saloon cars, carrying Kilimanjaro residents who are here to celebrate Christmas and New Year festivities.

    A survey has revealed that the majority of streets in Moshi municipality, especially in the Central Business Area, were full of motor vehicles, crisscrossing the streets at a snail's pace. Pedestrians take between 10 to 15 minutes before they can cross the roads, depending on the pace of the motor vehicle drivers.

    "I cannot imagine Tanzanians are so rich, almost everybody driving his or her car," a pedestrian was heard quipping. Acting Features Editor with the Daily News/Sunday News, Mr Deo Mushi, much as he is the resident of Moshi District, was equally surprised to see such long queues of motor vehicles jamming the streets in Moshi, saying one could not differentiate this week's traffic jam in Moshi to that of
    Dar es Salaam.

    The survey has also revealed that the number of passenger motor cycles, popularly known as ‘bodaboda,' have also increased, making streets unsafe to pedestrians whose lanes have been invaded by motorcycle riders.

    It is a yearly tradition for residents in Kilimanjaro living outside the regional boundary to re-join their families and relatives to mark the two occasions – Christmas and the New Year festivals. It is also an opportunity for the natives to perform some traditional rites for their deceased ancestors to seek appeasement for any wrongdoing or bestowment of blessings.

    Some of the distinct symbols of appeasement are he-goats and a local brew, ‘mbege.' So, Christmas is the day when natives slaughter goats and throats soothed with calabashes of ‘mbege.'

    This week recreational places such as bars and hotels were full of revelers, putting smiles on the faces of operators and owners as they amass profits.

    Kama ni kweli ukabila ukaota mizizi bongo, halafu wachagga wakafukuzwa kutoka mikoa mingine, sijui kama Kilimanjaro patakalika, itabidi mikoa mingine ivamiwe, so therefore God forbid tribalism conflicts.

    BTW Moshi ni mji wa kupigiwa mfano, hilo wapewe credit.

    Mkuu mbona unakuwa na wasiwasi hivyo?
    Maslahi yako yatalindwa tu, ukabila hauwezi kutufarakanisha hadi hapa tulipofika na hakuna juhudi zozote zinazofanyika kuuchochea. Sasahivi kuna juhudi za kutugawa kwa misingi ya dini ingawa nazo hazitofanikiwa!
