By Marc Nkwame in Arusha

Newly built bridge linking Oldonyosambu Ward in Ngorongoro District has disappeared with the regional authorities here ordering the contractor arrest.

Arusha Regional Commissioner Mrisho Gambo has ordered the arrest of the contractors and all officials who participated in the project that has left more questions than answers, despite costing the government about 365m/-.

Oldonyosambu residents told the RC who is touring the district that the newly built bridge lasted for just 12 months, leaving the new village of Jema marooned in a remote island separated by a large gushing river.
