Nyerere’s residence to be transformed into tourist centre

BUTIAMA, MARA: IN a move aimed at honouring the legacy of the late father of the nation, Mwalimu Julius Nyerere, the government has announced plans to convert his residence in the village of Mwitongo, Butiama District, Mara Region, into a vibrant tourist centre.

Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa reiterated this commitment while addressing residents of Muhumba Township during his ongoing work visit to the Mara Region.

Mr Majaliwa emphasised the government’s determination to enhance the historical significance of Nyerere’s home, underscoring its potential to become a pivotal attraction for tourists.

He instructed the Butiama District Commissioner, Moses Kaegele, to conduct a comprehensive assessment of the area, identifying key areas for improvement to facilitate the realisation of this ambitious project.

The PM also directed the Ministry of Works to expedite the completion of the road connecting Serengeti to Butiama, ensuring convenient access for tourists.

During his visit to Mwitongo, Prime Minister Majaliwa paid his respects to the family of the late leader and laid a wreath at his gravesite, symbolising the profound reverence the nation holds for Nyerere’s enduring legacy.

The government, through the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, opened the doors of the old Mwalimu Julius Nyerere’s house located in the Magomeni area in Dar es Salaam for tourists in 2020.

The house, which depicts the beginning of political liberation movements of the father of the nation at Magomeni in Dar es Salaam, has now officially been turned into a tourist attraction. The government nationalised the house at Magomeni in 2011.

Furthermore, Mr Majaliwa inaugurated the construction of the Butiama District Commissioner’s office, signalling progress in infrastructural development within the region. He urged the responsible contractor, the Tanzania Building Agency (TBA), to adhere to the stipulated timelines for project completion, emphasising the government’s commitment to efficient service delivery.

In a significant policy directive, he advocated for the transition from traditional cooking methods reliant on wood and charcoal to cleaner alternatives such as gas.

Highlighting the detrimental health and environmental effects associated with biomass fuel usage, he urged Tanzanians to embrace cleaner energy sources, citing statistics indicating the alarming rate of deforestation and indoor air pollution.

The Prime Minister’s remarks underscore the government’s proactive stance towards sustainable development and environmental conservation. With a vision to promote clean energy adoption and preserve Tanzania’s natural heritage, the government aims to safeguard public health and mitigate the adverse effects of traditional cooking practices.

It is estimated that only five per cent of Tanzanians have adopted clean energy use, and experts believe the association is better positioned to propel the government’s vision.
