Tanzanite's Mirerani Wall launch on Friday, historic moment

PRESIDENT John Magufuli will inaugurate the ‘Great Mirerani Wall’, whose thrust is to fortify security around the Tanzanite Mining Hills in Simanjiro District Friday.

According to an official statement issued by the Tanzania Information Services (Maelezo) in Arusha Region here Thursday, the inauguration is one of the highlights of a four-day tour of Manyara and Arusha regions.

Meanwhile, our reporter Bernard Lugongo writes from Dar es Salaam that The Tanzania People’s Defence Forces (TPDF) which was tasked to build the 25-kilometer wall has given an assurance that the construction work was undertaken within the six-month timeframe, with great efficiency.

The TPDF’s spokesperson, Colonel Ramadhani Dogoli, invited members of the public to attend the historic function related to a facility for protecting the rare gemstone with which the country is endowed.

Late last February, the Chief of Defence Forces, General Venance Salvatory Mabeyo, inspected construction works for the Great Mirerani Wall for protecting local tanzanite gemstone mining quarries and expressed satisfaction over the pace and standard of the project.

“We would like the Commander-in-Chief of Tanzanian Armed Forces, President John Magufuli to inaugurate the wall, which manifests one of the country’s efforts to safeguard resources and build the economy,” he had stated.

The CDF had led a delegation of heads of security organs to visit the Mirerani Hills in Simanjiro District but especially the wall which has been completed two months ahead of schedule.
