Tour company builds 80m/- police station

A tour firm has invested US$49,000 (about 80m/-) to build an ultra-modern police station at Minjingu Village in Babati Rural, Manyara Region. 

Kibo Guides, owned by Mr Willy Chambullo, bankrolled the entire project single handedly after efforts to mobilise other tour firms flopped.

The firm, which also operates three-stars Maramboi exclusive tented lodge at Minjingu wilderness, funded the much-needed police station, as part of its corporate social responsibility.

Manyara Regional Police commander Akili Mpwapwa, said the police station will serve nearly 10,000 people in Nkaiti Ward in the district.

The RPC said the police station being on a highway and at the heart of the northern tourism circuit, will also serve better tourists and investors in that regard. 

“We are very grateful to the Kibo Guides for the police station. This is patriotism worth emulating by others,” Mr Mpwapwa said.

According to him, crime rate has been on the rise in Minjingu in the wake of emerging economic activities in the area, posing a new challenge to the police. 

Minjingu, which is located at the focal point of Tarangire, Lake Manyara national parks and Manyara Ranch, is a gateway for thousands of tourists and w home to the Minjingu Phosphate Fertiliser plant.

Handing over the building, Kibo Guides managing director and chairman of Tanzania Association of Tour Operators, Mr Chambullo said the goal was to help improve security in the area.
