Improving Rural Roads
Tanzanian Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa on July 2 launched the Tanzania Rural and Urban Road Agency (TARURA) aimed at improving transport in rural areas across the East African nation.
Majaliwa said that the agency will help improve road networks in rural areas, hence improving transport services for rural communities. He explained the move will also reduce the price of food crops and industrially produced goods as the transport charges will also be reduced. “We are very optimistic that large part of the country will be accessible, facilitating the government to deliver social services to its people,” he said.
