“The building we inspected today will also provide services to stillborn babies,” he said.

Jenista who is in Njombe Region to inspect TASAF projects said Njombe has 54 projects in all districts of the region and added that the projects aim to solve challenges facing the people in the education, health and road infrastructure sectors.

“Njombe and Makambako districts were facing challenges in regard to shortage of classrooms in primary schools and there were areas that had satellite schools that forced students to walk long distances to schools, but the government has solved many of these challenges through TASAF projects,” she said.

Meanwhile, Njombe District Commissioner, Kissa Kasongwa said the maternity building that will also be used for stillborn babies will solve challenges that face residents in his district.

On behalf of TYASAG managing director, John Steven the director of TASAF projects said he has accompanied the minister to inspect TASAF projects financed by OPEC the sponsorship that runs to 2025.
