Govt to Repossess and Restore Fallow Sisal Farms in Tanzania

In a bid to revive and develop sisal plantations, the government has announced an intention to revoke all undeveloped farms. The Regional Commissioner, Evarist Ndikilo told Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa in Tanga that his region was looking forward to repossessing the farms and dividing them amongst farmers. The sisal fibre is traditionally used for rope and twine, and has many other uses, including paper, cloth, footwear, hats, bags, carpets, geotextiles, and dartboards.
