Council Engineers Advised to Register With Professional Body


THE Chief Secretary, Ambassador Ombeni Sefue, has directed municipal councils in the country to ensure that all heads of construction departments are registered as professional engineers before June 30, 2016, to maintain the highest standards of professionalism through upholding the code of ethics.

He made the call in Dar es Salaam yesterday during the opening of the 13th Annual Engineers Day at Mlimani Conference Centre.

“We have witnessed some of the construction work by engineers who have been procured with the government being done below standards and the blame is directed to municipalities for lack of enough funds”, he explained.
