By Anne Robi
The Architects and Quantity Surveyors Board (AQRB) has requested the government to move forward the formation of the National Building Act that would help oversee and promote consistency in construction of buildings and other related matters in the industry.
Speaking to reporters in Dar es Salaam yesterday, the Chairman of the board, Dr Ambwene Mwakyusa, said the board proposed the formation of the Act and handed its views to the government for further action.
"It is almost six years since we proposed to the government for the formulation of the National Building Act. Unfortunately, we have not had any action concerning the Act," he said reiterating the need for the government to consider pushing for formation of the Act for the welfare of the nation and its people.
