This was revealed yesterday by the Council’s Executive Director Aloyce Kwezi when speaking to this paper.

Kwezi said the projects that have been implemented have made people in the area become satisfied with their government as were provided with answers to their various complaints.

He said the council has implemented big development projects which are a pride for the council whose residents mainly depend on farming for their livelihoods.

Among the projects include the Mgambalenga Canal Project built at a cost of 21bn/- to assist farmers in irrigation farming.

He said out of this money the council provided 76m/- while the Government of Japan through its international development arm (JICA) provided the rest.

“Up to now the project is 71 percent complete and used 2.4bn/-,” he said.

He said other projects include Kilolo District Hospital, Kibadaga Health Centre, Iringa urban water supply project, all of which are being built at a cost of 34.2bn/-.

He said the council continues implementing new projects as well as old ones while appealing to the residents to continue supporting their government’s efforts by working hard during this year.

He said the main issue the council was still working on is to see all students passed to join secondary schools do as per the directives of Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa and that what they now do is to complete the construction of classrooms and school desks.
