President John Magufuli has officially inaugurated the Tunduma – Laela – Sumbawanga road, an important infrastructure which is expected to boost economic activities in and around the area.  

Mr. Magufuli said the 223.2 kilometre road, which is the extension of the 1,286 kilometre highway linking the western belt through Tunduma – Mpanda – Kigoma to Nyakanazi, would have major economic impact in the country’s Southern Highlands and Western zones.

A statement issued by Ikulu recently quoted President Magufuli as saying construction of the road was financed by Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) to the tune of TZS 373. 949 billion and completion of the project has boosted economic activities in the regions by connecting Tanzania and neighboring countries of Malawi, Zambia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, Rwanda and Uganda.

Addressing a public rally at Laela town in Sumbawanga District, Mr. Magufuli commended wananchi  inhabiting  the regions served by the road and reassured them that all roads linking the regions would be tarmacked.

He expressed his gratitude to the government of the United States of America which, through MCC, financed the project and implored wananchi and motorists to protect the infrastructure and to refrain from mining sand on the road sides and vandalizing road signs.

The President also expressed his disappointment over reports that the 1.7bn/- solar installations that run Laela town water project had been set on fire and directed that the culprits be found soonest and legal proceedings be instituted against them.

Dr. Magufuli was also dismayed to learn that Fally Enterprises Ltd, a company that was contracted to implement the water project and other works, performed so poorly that none of the handled over structures met expectations while he was paid in full.

The President gave law enforcing organs a seven-day ultimatum to arrest both the suspect and public officials who oversaw the relevant procurement process, investigate and take the necessary legal action against them.
