THE Dar es Salaam Regional Commissioner (RC), Mr Said Meck Sadiki, has called upon commuter bus owners to transport commuters to Uhuru Stadium so that city residents may attend the 51st anniversary of mainland independence on Sunday.

Briefing reporters on the celebrations in the city, Mr Sadiki said the anniversary is to be graced by President Jakaya Kikwete saying the people should come out early to avoid any inconvenience.

"I call on the general public to come out in big number to witness the colourful event," he said. He said the event is expected to be graced by leaders from Southern African Development Community (SADC).

The anniversary under the theme 'Commitment, Integrity and Patriotism are the Pillar of our National Development' will feature traditional dances and music from Msondo Ngoma Jazz Band, Rwanda National Ballet (from Kigali) and TMK group.

Mr Sadiki said the general public should use the southern gate of Uhuru Stadium for entry and exit during the celebrations, saying the invited guests with invitation cards should use the gate number two at the stadium. "All invited public leaders with cars should use gate number three of the stadium while students who will take part in the celebrations should use the eastern gate," he said.
