Tanzania: Bukoba Residents Construct 44 Million Crop Warehouse

OVER 3,000 residents from Butelankuzi Ward in Bukoba Rural District, in collaboration with the District Agricultural Programme (DASIP), have successfully completed construction of a Crops' Warehouse at a cost of 44m/-.

Bukoba Rural Member of Parliament (MP), Jasson Rweikiza, commended the residents for their effort, calling upon other people to take the same initiative. He visited Butelankuzi Ward on Thursday. Mr Rweikiza advised the people to change the warehouse into a primary cooperative society.

He contributed 200,000/- to facilitate the registration process. The Village Executive Officer for Irango, Leopold Anaclet, informed the legislator that the residents had also contributed over 9m/- while the council dished out another 35m/- for various development projects.

The residents, however, complained that most of the roads in the district were in a pathetic condition and they faced an acute shortage of clean water. Mr Rweikiza contributed 2.8m/- to support residents from Misenye and Irango villages to get clean water.

Meanwhile, residents in Maruku Ward, Bukoba Rural District, have constructed two classrooms at a cost of 22.9m/. Out of the amount 'wananchi' contributed 7m/- while the District Council contributed 15.9m/-.

The Treasurer of the Ward Construction Committee, Jastin Ngirwa, said the project started in 2007, adding that the classrooms would be utilized to accommodate students selected for Form One next year. Mr Rweikiza contributed 2.2m/- to support the people's efforts.
