Quote:
Arusha is a city in northern Tanzania. It is the capital of the Arusha Region, which claims a population of 1,288,088, including 281,608 for the Arusha District (2002 census). Arusha is surrounded by some of Africa's most famous landscapes and national parks. Situated below Mount Meru on the eastern edge of the eastern branch of the Great Rift Valley, it has a mild climate and is close to Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Olduvai Gorge, Tarangire National Park, and Mount Kilimanjaro, as well as having its own Arusha National Park on Mount Meru.

Arusha — THERE is staggering number of once prosperous, world cities that have been disappearing from the face of the earth due to various global calamities and new developments indicate that Arusha may soon join the list.

A report from the Pangani Water basin, tabled here during the just ended "National Water Week," warned that Arusha is on the verge of sinking because underneath the city's structure, there are hollow bunkers which keep increasing with each new building which gets constructed in town.

Whether it is a hotel building, business property or residential premises, each of the many real estate developments taking place here, is always accompanied by adjacent water wells, drilled or excavated randomly as owners join the long list of people who already have their own, on-site water wells from which they get to pump or draw the precious liquid which is becoming scarce in town.

However by doing so, experts point out that hollow bunkers are being created beneath the City's ground surface and these gaping caves keep increasing at an alarming rate, threatening the earth stability.

Though the advice seems to have escaped many people here but the truth of the matter is that per every new building mushrooming in town, there is a large pit filled with water underneath. And the triggering effect does not have to come from far; it is very well known that Tanzania's active volcano; "Oldonyo Lengai" is just a stone throw from Arusha and the Mountain has always been the source of tremors that rocked the entire East African region.

So, when the ground eventually becomes too loose and then saggy, due to the hollow bunkers crisscrossing underneath the city, as well as the water contained in them, it will just take a mild earthquake from Lengai and - Goodbye Arusha. Only last week the Municipal Director Mr Estomih Chang'a called upon the people of Arusha to report at the city hall and help municipal fathers with suggestions in the current efforts to review, and possibly correct, the city's master plan. Rather too late! For many years the local authorities have been busy sleeping, stuffing the town's guiding by-laws under their pillows.

As they snored on, buildings started mushrooming here haphazardly, filling each and every available open space, including playgrounds, roads and encroaching even official highways' reserves. By the time the city fathers woke from their deep slumber, tens of thousands of newly built structures had sprouted out in town overnight and by the time the coffee smell hit their nostrils, nearly 80 per cent of all these city buildings were standing on pieces of land that were never surveyed, others covering reserved spaces once meant for either public use or environment conservation.

Greyish structures of steel, bricks and concrete filled every inch of what used to be Tanzania's greenest town, turning it into a claustrophobic district. The uncontrolled real-estate development zest killed public parks, annihilated playgrounds, invaded road reserves and sprawled onto river banks, some going to an extent of diverting the courses of the natural flowing water.

Is this true?

Certainly the report seems true since it also appears in the Daily News.

Though, I hope it is not just propoganda by people who are missing a green Arusha.

Anyway, I hope that the situation can be remedied now, Arusha is a beautiful town and should be protected at all costs.

It seems no one really cares about the Nakumatt in Moshi. Hopefully someone will take a picture soon.
