Give us the data which shows that, in 2017 Mombasa cargo was 22M tonnes while Dar was 16M tonnes, and this before UN shifted to Tanzania, this gap is closing very fast. Remember, Malawi, Zambia, Rwanda and Burundi almost all their cargo go through Dar port, 20% of Uganda cargo go through Dar port, currently we are positioning ourselves to get part of Uganda cargo which contributes nearly 28% of all cargo of Mombasa port. Is not easy for Mombasa port to compete with Dar especially after Uganda and South Sudan has indicated to use Dar port instead of MombasaGuys what’s with the hullabaloo ..... Dar port and Mombasa are not peers. Mombasa handles almost twice what dar handles. Most of the cargo ends up in Nairobi Kenya not Uganda, Rwanda South Sudan or Congo. The only way Dar can beat MSA is if Kenyan cargo passes through Dar port ....... which will never happen. What you forget in all these is that the Kenyan economy is almost twice the TZ economy and this reflects on the cargo volumes handled. Forget about UG, Congo, Sudan etc..... your neighbor will never make you rich. Kila nchi ipambane na hali yake!!
