Developing the beauty of Mwanza city
I recently visited Mwanza city in northern Tanzania. This is the third city in bigness in Tanzania after Arusha city which is famous for it’s the centre for International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda genocide which took place in 1994. Arusha is also the headquarter of the East African Community (EAC). Mwanza of late has become famous as it’s the hub of lake zone business. Because of its importance in business, the city’s municipal council authorities are striving hard to make it look more attractive to tourists who visits some of the famous tourist attraction located at Saa Nane Island. At the heart of the city centre, there has been constructed a fish like structure of a common fish name known as “Sangara” as a significance of its popularity. Sangara fish were introduced into lake Victoria way back in 1975 for a test research activity which was conducted by Lake Victoria Management Authority. But the research proved the abundant breeding of this fish species whose population now covers about 70 percent in the whole of lake Victoria which links the three East African countries of Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.
