Housing units worth USD 550m for Tanzania's defense forces to be constructed

Posted on : Tuesday , 30th September 2014

Tanzania government has signed a US$ 550m concessional loan agreement with the Chinese Government for construction of 12,000 new housing units for the country’s military. The houses are going to be constructed at various towns and cities in Tanzania.

Construction works for the housing project are going to be carried out in two phases, where 6,600 units will be constructed during the initial phase. These units are to be built by 2016 at a cost of US$ 300m. Each of the phases in the new housing project is expected to take approximately 50 months for the units to be ready.

The second phase of the new housing project is going to be constructed by the Shanghai Construction Group at a cost of US$ 250m.

The Tanzanian People’s Defense Forces is mandated to defend the country along with her citizens. The army housing units are to cater for the need for accommodation for the military and its institutions. All soldiers are expected to take their new constructed houses by 2017.

Accommodation for civil servants, and especially the army, has been a challenge due to the fact that most of them do not have permanent stations. They are constantly on the move once they have been reassigned to different regions of the country. The Governmnet is doing all it can to make sure that their soldiers have proper houses regardless of where they are stationed and thus the need to build these houses in about 40 towns and cities in the country.
