GEITA: SGA Security has scooped yet another top award for excellence in offering guarding services through the use of state of the art technology and safety in the mining industry.
The Award was presented to SGA Security during the just concluded International Mining Exhibition in Geita.
The 6th edition of the mining exhibition was closed by Zanzibar’s Second Vice President, Hon. Hemed Suleiman, after 10 days of busy activity by over 350 exhibitors.

We foster relations with all stakeholders in all our activities to ensure that we remain sustainable”, Mr. Sambu added.
