KILIMANJARO Regional Commissioner Nurdin Babu has expressed satisfaction with the conduct of the National Population and Housing Census in various areas of the region.
Mr Babu made his statement on Wednesday to journalists when he was giving an assessment of implementation of the exercise since it started on August 23, this year, throughout the country.
“Until now, available information shows that there is high awareness among the members of the public and people have given huge cooperation to the census clerks; let me take this opportunity to congratulate them because their cooperation is an important in making this exercise a success,” he said.
In addition, he appealed to those who have not yet been reached to be patient since no single household or person in the region will be left out in the ongoing exercise.
Commenting on the exercise shortly after taking part in the exercise, Kilimanjaro Regional Chief Sheikh Shaban Mlewa called upon those who have participated in the exercise to be good Ambassadors and encourage those who have not yet been counted.
“May I take this opportunity to appeal to those who have taken part in the exercise to ensure that they encourage their colleagues to cooperate with the census clerks when they are reached because doing so would make the exercise successful and help the Government makes good plans for developments of its people,” he said.
For his part, Rombo District Commissioner Colonel Hamis Maiga said the exercise was progressing well in the district, whereby on the second day of the exercise (Tuesday) many people showed up and were cooperative to the census clerks who reached them.
He further said in order to make the exercise successful, the district authorities had created five sub-committees which he said are working in the district while the population and housing census exercise continues.
