The government has plans to set aside $27.9 billion to renovate old hospitals nationwide in the 2023/2024 fiscal year.

According to the Deputy Minister of State in the President’s Office (Regional Administration and Local Government), Dr. Festo Dugange, the government has plans to set aside $27.9 billion to renovate old hospitals nationwide in the 2023/2024 fiscal year.

He mentioned this to the August House on Monday 24th of April. He further stated that among the hospitals to be renovated is the one at Meru Council which will receive 900 million for that purpose. He mentioned this when he was asked a question by Arumeru East MP Danielson Pallangyo who wanted to know the government’s plan to repair the infrastructure of Arumeru District Hospital. The Deputy Minister also talked about the continuance of the government in allocating funds for the renovation of the country’s oldest hospitals.

“In the fiscal year 2022/23, the government has allocated 17.1bn/- for the renovation of 19 hospitals.” Furthermore, a total of 12.95bn/- has been allocated for the renovation and expansion of the infrastructure of the 14 oldest hospitals as of February 2023,” he said.

All projects covered by the TACTIC project agreement will be completed or almost completed in 2025.

When asked another question directed to the same ministry on projects under Tanzania Cities Transforming Infrastructure and Competitiveness project (TACTIC), he reassured MPs that the government has pledged that by the year 2025, all projects covered by the agreement will be finished or nearly finished.

The TACTIC project will come in three phases.

He went ahead to explain that the TACTIC project has three phases where the first phase has already started looking for contractors and the second phase is at the final design stage. This explanation came as a response to a supplementary question by Singida Urban MP Mussa Sima who wanted to know when the government will implement the project to build a modern market in the Ipembe area under the TACTIC project.

Dr Dugange further said Ikungi District Council in collaboration with UN Women completed the construction of a butchery and vegetable storage building worth 82mil/- in the area. In addition, he said the government will continue to allocate the budget for the construction of the modern Ikungi market.
