According to certain sources within government officials, the Tanzanian government is on the verge of unveiling a new region set to emerge from the Morogoro region. While the name of this forthcoming region is still up for discussion, there's a strong indication that it will be named after the Ulanga River, with its administrative center likely to be located in Ifakara.

The driving force behind this initiative, as expressed by an official, is to address the gap in service accessibility. Currently, accessing crucial regional services in Morogoro town requires a considerable amount of time, roughly a day. The prospect of this division has garnered widespread approval among the residents of Kilombero, Malinyi, and Ulanga Districts, who eagerly anticipate improved local governance and service provision.

However, amidst this enthusiasm, notable concerns have been raised, particularly among certain members of parliament. They emphasize the importance of a thorough parliamentary discussion and approval process to prevent biases in the country's division. This call for procedural transparency underscores a broader desire for governance accountability, ensuring that decisions prioritize the welfare of all citizens.

Furthermore, establishing a new region entails more than just administrative restructuring; it entails significant implications for resource distribution, infrastructure development, and governance mechanisms. It's crucial that these aspects undergo meticulous evaluation to ensure equitable resource allocation and efficient service delivery across all areas within the newly delineated region. Additionally, there's an urgent need to establish mechanisms for local participation and representation in decision-making processes, empowering communities and fostering inclusivity in regional development initiatives.

The decision to name the new region after the Ulanga River holds deep cultural and historical significance, reflecting the rich heritage and identity of the region. This choice serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of preserving local traditions amidst administrative changes. Going forward, it's imperative for stakeholders to engage in open dialogue, address concerns, and collaborate effectively to ensure the successful establishment of the new region, ultimately benefiting all its residents.

Furthermore, as discussions continue regarding the naming of the new region after the Ulanga River, it's worth noting that there is already a district called Ulanga. If the region is named Ulanga, the existing Ulanga District would need a new name. Residents and members of parliament representing affected constituents have proposed renaming it to "Mahenge District." This suggestion aims to honor the historical and cultural significance of Mahenge, a significant locality within the region. This alternative proposal underscores the importance of considering the perspectives and preferences of all stakeholders in the naming process, ensuring that the chosen names resonate with the identity and heritage of the region.

Ifakara ikiondolewa mkoa wa Morogoro, mapato ya mkoa yotashuka kwa kiwango kisicho cha kawaida.

Waruguru watabaki kupigana zongo na majini na pia kusomeana vitabu kule kinole


Yes, Morogoro ni kubwa sana, lazima igawanywe
 
Kuna faida gani ya kuanzisha mkoa? Badala ya kuanzisha halmashauri na kata, wanataka mkoa? RC na timu yake watakuja kuwasaidia nini? Ni nini wananchi hufuata mkoani?
