Twenty nine local authorities from across the four Lake Zone regions have jointly acquired 142 hectors of land on the outskirts of Mwanza City for the construction of grounds for agricultural exhibitions dubbed Nane Nane.

The Kagera, Mara, Mwanza and Shinyanga regions local authorities bought the land at Igoma Ward in Nyamagana District.

All residents of the bought land have been compensated and are now vacating the area to pave way for the construction of the zonal Nane Nane grounds.

The Mwanza regional commissioner, Mr Abbas Kandoro, said the new grounds would provide farmers and livestock keepers with an opportunity to showcase their products and to borrow a leaf from each other's book. Mr Kandoro was speaking during the climax of the Nane Nane shows observed at regional level in the city.
