Dar es Salaam — Watumishi Housing Company (WHC) is planning to construct 500 housing units for public servants in Dodoma as the government relocates there.

The public entity which is a licensed fund manager for management of the WHC Real Estate Investment Trust (WHC-REIT) has already bought 50 acres and expects to start with 100 houses in the current financial year, according to the company's chief executive officer Fred Msemwa.

"The WHC board has endorsed the move after we acquired land at Njedengwa near University of Dodoma, which is conducive for the project. The area has tarmacked roads, water supply and electricity."
