"We can't allow arbitrary parking of trucks and vehicles in the district to the expense of blocking roads, we need to design a special arrangement to make the parking beneficial," he said.
"It is not necessary for every vehicle passing the district to stop here, for instance some vehicles carry bodies of the deceased where the driver's schedule requires him to continue undisturbed."
He also warned of the dangers in areas of the parked trucks that if an explosion occurs it would raze the whole district into ashes.
President Magufuli is travelling back to Dar es Salaam after a two day state visit in Geita region where he launched a CRDB bank branch in Chato District and commissioned a 45 kilometers tarmac road from Uyovu to Bwanga in Bukombe District.
