TANZANIAN GOVT TO ISSUE NEW BY-LAWS TO PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT

DAR-ES-SALAAM, The Tanzanian government, through the Minister of State in the President's Office responsible for Regional Administration and Local Government (RALG), will soon issue new by-laws on environmental preservation to ensure protection of ecological system and nature across the country.

The Minister of State in the Office of the Vice President for the Union and Environment, January Makamba, says his office has drafted model by-laws aimed at strengthening efforts in fighting environmental degradation. We have done a lot in preserving environment and protecting Nature, we have also managed to resolve various challenges regarding Union matters."

His office has formed a template on new by-laws, which, when signed by the Minister, will assist in the war against environmental degradation. The new by-laws are already on the table of the RALG Minister, I believe, they will soon become operational, he says.

The new by-laws are expected to help both the government and the public in preserving the environment. We believe the new by-laws will help us to protect environment and Nature; it is obvious that the environment is a major topic across the world, therefore, Tanzania like any other country must do everything in its capacity to protect the environment".
