    Tanzania |

    By Teonas Aswile

    For what has been seen as ‘limited' participation of Kigamboni people in the upcoming project of constructing new Kigamboni town, the residents of Kigamboni have opposed the new government project.

    Kigamboni town as it is seen nowadays

    The residents had to stand in front of media yesterday insisting on their grievances about the project, opposing the Minister for Lands, Housing and Settlements development for her decision to cooperate with Temeke Municipal councilors and announce about the New Town Construction.

    "The Land Law has explained on how citizens can be involved on their land. We wonder why our councilors give out statements without involving us. We are ready to fight for our rights as the project…we are afraid has a smell of corruption from some government officials." said the Chairman of Kigamboni Coalition, Mr Kassim Abdallah to journalists

    Ahmad Abdurrahman, another Kigamboni resident said, they had a meeting with their legislator, Dr Faustine Ndungulile on June and they told him on how they can participate in the implementation of the project but nothing has been done.

    Another resident, Exaud Mmari said, Kigamboni residents understand that the project is very important but the implementation puts them in puzzle. He insisted the residents are united regardless of their different political parties and it is the Kigamboni voice demanding their rights.

    The government of
    Tanzania via Minister for Lands, Housing and Settlements development, Prof Ana Tibaijuka announced the commence of Kigamboni project and more that Tsh 60 Bil out of Tsh 600 Bil have already been placed for the first phase of New Kigamboni town project.

    The total estimation for the project is expected to be Tsh. 11.6 Tril and project will take at least 20 years to be completed.

    Too little too late.....the marine vehicle has already started, they ,residents, were warned did not care...voted CCM in as their councilors....now are paying the price. This government is determined to build this City and doesn't care because it knows the next generations are to suffer the environmental consequences of the project. There was no any environmental impact assessment not to mention any public involvement in the decision-making process. The captain of the vehicle decided to move in his own for his own benefits don't care who are inside or outside the vehicle.
    Poleni ndugu zangu wakigamboni.
