The President raised this concern today in Tabora region as she was finalizing her three days official visit of Tabora-Koga-Mpanda 342.9km road opening Inauguration.

“Forest reserves have their advantage. We have talked of honey product. We ought to have forests to have honey.If we are to invade forests for deforestation or any other man activity. What will be the stand of this business.

“Initially the world is generating income from bee keeping. Forest Reference Emission Level (FREL) for example, if we are to allow invasion, Tanzania will never benefit from it.”

According to her already orders are given to regional and district commissioners, on proper land plan so that the areas are utilized accordingly.
