    Quoted from the Gurdian ya jana

    ``As a result of selling public housing and land at a fraction of market values to a relatively small group of politicians and senior officials, the Government of Tanzania has foregone a windfall income of hundreds of billions of shillings (hundreds of millions of USDs), and will continue to lose money on future sales``, says the 27-page report.

    In Dar es Salaam alone, according to the report, income foregone from the sales is estimated at over $200 million.

    For instance, the report reveals that in Oysterbay, Upanga, Sea view and other prime areas, the current market value of the land on which the auctioned government houses are built ranges between $150,000-$500,000, depending on the location, but yet the buyers paid not more than $50,000 to acquire the property....According to data released by TBA, a total 7,159 houses were sold countrywide. Surprisingly, the money earned was used to build only 910 houses, making the project another `white elephant` as it failed even to meet 20 percent of the total houses demanded by the growing number of public servants.
