Dodoma — THE Dodoma Regional Commissioner, Rehema Nchimbi, has ordered the Farmer's Day organising committee here to ensure that no pavilion will remain closed during the celebrations.
Dr Nchimbi said this here recently when she was told that some ministries may not take part at the Nane Nane celebrations to be marked at Nzuguni grounds here.
The Tanzania Agricultural Society Organisation (TASO) Central Zone Secretary, Dr Samson Muniko had told the Central Zone Nane Nane Central Committee members led by Dr Nchimbi that four ministries would not take part in the exhibition.
The ministries include that of Health and Social Welfare, Ministry of Industry and Trade, Ministry of Labour and Employment and Ministry of Community Development, Gender and Children.
"The buildings of ten ministries that have been put up are in good condition, however, there are ministries that will not take part due to various reasons including lack of funds and failure to participate in two different venues," Dr Muniko said.
He elaborated further that ministries have directed their focus on Lindi Region where the celebrations will be marked at national level.
It was at this juncture when the RC, Dr Nchimbi ordered that no building should be left idle, adding that TASO should contact agencies under the ministries that would not take part to occupy the ministries' buildings. "Even if the ministries are not coming, agencies working under them should occupy the buildings.
For example, the regional hospital can occupy the ministry of health's building...," she said. She added that the Ministry of Health's services were crucial such as voluntary HIV/AIDS testing, adding that Nane Nane was a golden opportunity for people to report their health problems to doctors.
Dr Nchimbi noted that gender desks should also consider using the Ministry of Community Development, Gender and Children facility in serving people who will call at the pavilion.
She was, however, disappointed for the failure by the ministry of industry and trade to take part, saying that there would be so many issues to do with small industries that need the ministry to be there.
"All the buildings must be well cleaned and utilised because people are coming here and we want the area to be clean and safe...," she said.
