I AM SATISFIED WITH THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE MAFIA FERRY- PRIME MINISTER MAJALIWA
The Prime Minister, Hon. Kassim Majawa is satisfied with the construction of a Mafia ferry that will provide transportation services for passengers and luggage between Nyamisati and the Mafia. The construction of the 36-metre ferry and 12 metres wide has reached 95 percent and is capable of carrying 200 passengers and 100 tonnes of cargo. The construction has cost about 5.3 billion shillings. Speaking after inspecting the construction of the ferry today (October 5, 2020) at the Songoro Marine company's yard in Kigamboni in Dar es Salaam, Hon. Majawa said construction of the ferry is the Government's strategy to continue building ferry going to the islands in the country. "The message to Mafia is that this ferry is expected to start plying into the water starting next month, after each task is completed and TASAC will come to inspect that the quality of this vessel is completed, we believe the Mafia people transportation problem will now be over"
