The Rural and Urban Roads Agency (TARURA) was officially opened by the Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa Kassim on 2 July 2017. The launch of TARURA was followed by the announcement in Government Gazette No. GN 211 of 12 May 2017.
The Prime Minister directed TARURA to reject the gross corruption that is involved in tender processes, especially in road projects. “Only competent contractors should be hired to implement road projects through competitive tenders,” said the Prime Minister. He also instructed TARURA to address the poor management of construction contracts between Contractors and the Authority in road projects, insisting on transparency in all public works contracts.
Mh. Majaliwa warned some district council officials who were accused of shifting the use of funds allocated for road projects to other projects, saying that the money should be spent on planned projects.
He said that TARURA will facilitate improvements to the network of rural and urban roads, and enable people to transport crops and other items from villages to urban areas.
“The new agency is key to improving agricultural productivity by facilitating the export of produce to the market. It will also be important for our economic growth,” he added, adding that TARURA will help change people’s lives, reduce the risk and time spent on the road.
Hon. Majaliwa said the new agency will facilitate the provision of social services to people especially in rural areas. He also approved the allocation of funds from the Road Fund to the Roads Agency TANROAD and TARURA at 70 and 30 percent, respectively.
Earlier, the Minister of State in the Office of the President, Regional Administration and Local Government, Hon. George Simbachawene, appealed to the Prime Minister through the allocation of funds from the Road Fund to TANROAD and TARURA.
