The project for Kigamboni New City is part and parcel of the government strategies in stimulating the growing towns, major towns and major cities, with the purpose to reduce the growth of existing unplanned settlements. The plan was established in 2008, on the initiative of the Ministry of Lands, Housing & Human Settlements Development to respond the need for sustainable development, to limit the congestion of the biggest Tanzanian city and to promote economic growth of the new planned town taking into account the industrial sector of Dar-es-Salaam, the port and socio-economic activities of the proposed new settlement.
Kigamboni has the aim to be an Eco-City‘ which is intended to exploit the available natural resources in the area, in a sustainable manner.
It is also expected to become a tourist pole in the region of East Africa. The development program is divided into three phases, started in 2011 and to be completed in 2030. At the moment the process of development is still at the preliminary stage.
As many other African projects for satellite towns, Kigamboni represents a big challeng for the Government of Tanzania and it is of course in need of big amount of finances to make it successful.
Its costs implication which arises from its preliminary implementation stages and its effects, including the need for land acquisition and resettlement of the existing people are also factors that mark its peculiarity from a Tanzanian context.
All these factors call for serious considerations including the need to take into account issues regarding the rights of the affected population in terms of their entitlement to prompt payment of full and adequate compensation.
