CBE Mwanza campus acquires land

From Daily News, Dar es Salaam

After only one year of its existence in Mwanza, the College of Business Education (CBE) Mwanza Campus, has managed to acquire about 20 hectares of land at Kiseke suburb, where the institution plans to build its own structures. The CBE Mwanza campus is currently located in the city centre's buildings, belonging to Nyanza Co-operative Union (NCU) which has simply rented them out to the former on a 10-year fixed term contract, effective December, 2007.

The CBE Management, however, told Deputy Minister for Industry, Trade and Mdarketing, Dr, Cyril Chami here over the weekend that it owes money to the tune of a whopping 170m/- to Mwanza City Council for the institution to be able to start developing the area as planned. "Considering the astronomical costs, the College hereby makes a humble request, to your ministry in particular and government at large, for a helping hand in clearing part of the debts", the CBE Principal, Dr Waycliffe Lugoe pleaded.
