    Moshi Municipal Council has submitted proposals to expand the town to the Chairman of Kilimanjaro Regional Consultative Committee (RCC) who is also the Regional Commissioner, Mr Leonidas Gama, with a view of expediting the process to fulfill its vision of becoming a city next year.


    According to Moshi Municipal Director, Ms Bernadette Kinabo, the area of Moshi municipality was set to expand from the current area of 58 to 126 square kilometres and sizable tracks of land in Moshi rural area will form part of the municipality.


    She said Moshi municipality occupies the smallest area compared to other urban centres in
    Tanzania, such as Sumbawanga (1,329 square kilometres) and Dar es Salaam (1, 393 square kilometres).


    "The vision to raise the status of Moshi has prompted the Moshi Municipal Council's Department of Urban Planning and Environment to prepare a Municipal Boundary Expansion to demarcate new boundaries of the proposed Moshi City," according to Mrs Kinabo.


    She said when the idea to expand the town was introduced last year, the then Chairman of the Moshi District Council, Mr Stewart Lyatuu, rejected it as local politicians expressed misgivings over their status if tracks of land under their jurisdiction were engulfed in the proposed expansion area.


    Ms Kinabo mentioned villages in Moshi district, with their wards in brackets, likely to be included within the boundaries of the proposed Moshi city as Mandaka Mnono (Old Moshi West), Sango, Shia (Kimochi), Sambarai, Kindi Msasani and Chekereni Weruweru (Kibosho West) and Mvuleni, Mabogini (Mabogini).


    She said the new expanded boundaries will be demarcated by natural physical features, such as rivers, hills and roads/streets, which were discernible and permanent features.


    Ms Kinabo allayed fears of residents living in the lower Moshi area, which will greatly be affected by the proposed expansion plan.


    She said that residents will retain their properties but will be required to apply for their plots of land to be surveyed and included in the proposed Moshi city urban planning.


    According to Mr Alex Poteka, head of Urban Planning and Environment Department at Moshi Municipal Council, Moshi municipality gradually evolved from being a military camp based at Kolila in Old Moshi Division of Moshi District Council in 1892.


    He said Moshi moved to its present location in 1911 following extension of a railway line from Tanga and thereafter the town then grew during the British rule and it was designated the Administrative Headquarters of the Moshi District of the then Northern Province and a Township Authority in 1926.


    Mr Poteka said Moshi became a Town Council in 1956 before attaining a Municipal Council status in 1988. It is now eyeing at becoming a city by next year.

    The ministry concerned should review the issue keenly, this will enable the municipal council to make any possible amendments to avoid the long term unplanned cities in the country(no need to mention them). I(myself)accept this idea, it's okay but the necessary adjustments for the proposed city should be adhered to.
