By Marc Nkwame in Arusha

In a few years from now many of the Arusha urban residents will be living some ten kilometres from the current city, following the laying of foundation for the proposed new 'Safari City,' to mushroom in Matevesi area.

The new city planned, drawn and being executed by the state-run, National Housing Corporation, has floated nearly initial 600 plots for residential use and these, according to the Regional NHC Manager, Mr James Kisarika, are to be sold to ordinary Tanzanians who would like to be part of the 'Safari City.'

Meanwhile also; "effective from this week the National Housing Corporation management will be constructing ten low-cost housing units to serve as exemplary blocks under the new planning," said Mr William Genya, the Business Development Manager at NHC Headquarters.
