    Prince Charles of Wales and his wife The Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker Bowles watched stamp book

    Prince Charles of Wales and his wife Camilla have inaugurated the first residential post code and special stamps to mark commemoration of 50 years of
    Tanzania’s independence.

    The first code unveiled was 11707 which will be used to identify the – Karimjee Hall 2 Sokoine Drive,Dar es Salaam.

    Before inaugurating the post codes and special stamps Prince Charles visited President Kikwete and the First Lady Salma Kikwete at State House, where they held talks on relations between
    Tanzania and UK and other social issues.

    President Kikwete expressed gratitude to Prince Charles for accepting his invitation to visit Tanzania.

    “Britain is our partner in many issues of interest to our country …our relations are good. Britain is our main partner in business activities, in investment in the country’s economy, President Kikwete told Prince Charles.

    Prince Charles who arrived in the country on Sunday accompanied by his wife Camilla was received by Prime Minister
    Mizengo Pinda and the Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Minister Bernard Membe.

    Speaking to journalists before the inauguration ceremonies, Permanent Secretary Ministry of Communication Science and Technology Dr Florence Turuka said the new residential post code system will start to be implemented in
    Dar es Salaam.

    He said the aim was to identify every person and residence to ease delivery of various services.

    “We currently don’t have residential posts codes. This makes it difficult, especially when a person needs services,” he said.

    He said if the system was installed, it would be easy to know where each person lived.

    He explained that the new residential post code would be computerised, making it easy to establish exact locations by a simple touch of a computer key.

    For his part the mayor of
    Dar es Salaam City Dr Didas Masaburi welcoming Prince Charles to Karimjee Hall, said the seat of the city administration, built in 1916 was used by colonial government for different activities.

    He said the visit by Prince Charles to the building reflected his official welcome to Dar es Salaam.

    Meanwhile Prince Charles has hailed the implementation of the Tanzania’s Community based Management of fisheries resources in Rufiji, Mafia and Kilwa seascape project saying if sustained it would have a major impact on conservation initiatives.

    He said he was impressed by the manner in which the project was being implemented by drawing on immense wisdom of the local communities.

    He said the world needs to learn from the initiative demonstrated by the Tanzanian villagers.

    “Paying attention to the local wisdom and local input in conservation is a good thing to any sustainable project” he noted.

    He also noted that there was a need to build a global network aimed at streamlining the coastal conservation activities in a move to ensure sustainable agriculture and fishery activities.

    The Prince of Wales also called for global alliance in ensuring that poor countries like Tanzania were assisted to mitigate with the effects of climate change.

    Prince Charles and his wife Camilla is in the country for a three day official tour. Tomorrow they are scheduled to visit
    Zanzibar and Arusha.
