The government instructs the National Housing Corporation to complete the construction of the Vingunguti abattoir
Secretary General Office of the President Regional Administration and Local Government Engineer Joseph Nyamhanga has instructed the National Housing Corporation (NHC) to ensure that it completes the construction of the Vingunguti abattoir to be operational by the end of October, 2020
Engineer Nyamhanga issued the directive today while inspecting the construction of various strategic projects implemented by the Ilala Municipal Council in Dar es Salaam where he stressed that about twenty projects across the country have cost the Government more than 288 billion shillings
“Despite the good progress of construction, I instruct NHC who is responsible for the construction to ensure that he completes the construction as soon as possible to allow the abattoir to start work,” said Engineer Nyamhanga.
He said the government has been at the forefront of ensuring that they invest in development projects to support various public services and stressed that it is important that the projects are protected so that they can last for a long time.
For his part, the director of Ilala Municipality Jumanne Shauri said that the project of the Vingunguti abattoir has cost the government 12 billion shillings to enable the slaughter of more than 300 cows a day and provide at least 100 permanent jobs.
He said the completion of the project will make it a slaughterhouse with international standards and thus enable the nation to trade in meat internationally and thus earn foreign exchange
He also said that what is currently going on in the construction of the abattoir which reached an average of 90 percent is the installation of various slaughterhouses as well as other equipment related to the construction.
