Major housing project underway in regions

From Daily News, Dar es Salaam
By Daily News reporter

A DREAM by the majority of lowly paid public servants to own modern and durable homes is set to be realised soon following a move by Watumishi Housing Company (WHC) to launch a construction drive of 800 houses in four regions.

The move by WHC is a fulfilment of a promise made by the fourth phase government under retired president Jakaya Kikwete for the government to seek a lasting solution to the lack of descent houses by civil servants.

Speaking to the press in Dar es Salaam, WHC Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Dr Fred Msemwa named the regions with the housing units in brackets as Tanga at Pongwe area (40), Mwanza at Kisesa Township (56) and Dar es Salaam which will receive the bulk of the houses to be built in Kigamboni (400), Bunju (190) and Magomeni Usalama (104). According to the WHC Chief Executive Officer, the Magomeni Usalama project is set to build two flat buildings with 15 floors each.

The buildings to be built right at the heart of a historical part of Dar es Salaam in which it used to be the home for a good number of mid-ranking civil servants of independent Tanzania Mainland (Tanganyika) is set to change once and forever the area’s scenery.
