  • Description

    One of the most jubilant public demonstrations seen in Dar Es Salaam for years celebrated the announcement on Friday by Tanzanian President Julius Nyerere, that his Government was immediately taking over 400 properties under the state's new powers to acquire buildings.

    The powers were obtained under the new Acquisition of Buildings Act, by which the President can acquire any building valued at more than 100,000 shillings (about 5,800 Sterling).

    The completely unannounced bill is the latest major move towards state control of key sectors of the Tanzanian economy, and follows the take-over of banking, exports and imports, and major industries.

    The new measure is designed to eradicate exploitation by landlords.
