About Arusha

Quote:
Arusha is the capital of the Arusha Region, located in the north of Tanzania. It has a population of 270,485 (2002 census). This city is located on a plateau in the Great Rift Valley amidst the Serengeti Plain, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Olduvai Gorge, Tarangire National Park, and Mount Kilimanjaro National Park.

Geography and climate

Arusha is located by the foot of Mount Meru.

Yearly, the temperature ranges from 13 degrees Celsius to 30 degrees Celsius, and the seasons between wet and dry seasons. Due to Arusha's altitude, dry air is prevalent.

Arusha experiences an eastern prevailing wind from the Indian ocean, a couple of hundred miles east.

Modern history
Official documents ceding independence to Tanzania were signed by the United Kingdom at Arusha in 1961.

The Arusha Declarations for Self Reliance in Tanzania were signed in 1967 in Arusha.

The Arusha Accords were signed at Arusha on August 4, 1993, by representatives of competing factions in the Rwandan civil war.

In 1994 the UN security council decided by its Resolution 955 of 8 November 1994 that Arusha should host the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. The establishment of the tribunal with its employees has influenced the local economy of Arusha. The tribunal is expected to end its normal work in 2008 with two more subsequent years for appeals handling.

Arusha officially became a city on 1st July 2006

Arusha is East Africa's version of Abuja. (Its the proposed capital city of the East African Federation and a good number of building projects are taking place to ensure that it handles its future role in the region.)

The best thing about the city is its location. Its in the most economically productive region of Tanzania. Its also only 3 to 4 hours away from Nairobi (the main economic hub of the region) and on top of that, it has some of the highest elevations (Mt Meru and Kilimanjaro-though its a bit farther away) and very beautiful landscapes. It is the mini switzerland of East Africa IMO. This obviously means alot of tourist potential and Arusha is clearly capitalizing on this.

The setting is absolutely awesome and the city looks nice to me but someone said it is like Abuja, no way! Both cities are incomparable! It had cost BILLIONS of US Dollars to build Abuja and it will continue to swallow up more $ billions in the coming years! Arusha is certainly not like Abuja!

I meant Arusha and Abuja are similar on the basis that they are (or will be in the case of Arusha) new capitals built to serve an administrative purpose in a certain region. Though you obviously can't compare the two in terms of financial investments and the fact that Abuja was created from scratch.
