BY SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT

THE Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa delight over what he termed as successful and timely completion of beacon mounting exercise at the 1,500 Loliondo Game reserve Area.
The Premier further directed a round the clock safeguarding and protection of the demarcated ecological area.

Mr Majaliwa made the observations when he toured the demarcated Loliondo Game Controlled Area where 424 beacons have been erected with the sole purpose of protecting the area, which is vital for the survival of Ngorongoro-Serengeti ecosystem.

“ I commend you for exhibiting professionalism in the whole exercise and urge local leaders to sensitive people living in the vicinity on the importance of preserving the area for sustainable tourism that brings in significantly forex reserve into the country’s coffers,” he said.

The Prime Minister also admonished ill intentioned elements who deliberately mislead the public that the beacon mounting exercise in Loliondo was aimed to forcefully evict locals.

“The villages in question are 15 kilometers away from the mounted beacons, no one is evicted from the area as it widely claimed by some naysayers,” clarified the PM.

There are 14 villages in Loliondo division, with the government laying emphasis on providing vital social services like water, hospitals and schools, according to Mr Majaliwa.

The government has also constructed a road adjacent to the beacons to facilitate regular security patrols to ensure that nobody tampers with the project.

Earlier today, the Prime Minister flagged off a second batch of 127 residents who have volunteered to relocate from the Ngorongoro Conservation Area to Msomera village in Handeni District.
