By Lake Zone Watch writer,

A member of the Tanzania National Parks (TANAPA) Board of Trustees, Dr Rimo Nyansaho, has expressed his satisfaction with the way the state-owned agency conducts its business in managing the country’s natural resources and in promoting the tourism sector.

“I am satisfied and happy with the way TANAPA manages its responsibilities in conserving and promoting tourism to earn the country a substantial amount of income,” he said.

Speaking during his tour of the TANAPA pavilion at the on-going Zanzibar International Trade Fair being held at Kiembe Samaki – Fumba, Dr Nyansaho appealed to the agency management to continue with efforts to promote national parks and the Mwalimu Julius Nyerere Memorial House at Magomeni in Dar es Salaam to instill a sense of patriotism to the generation of young Tanzanians.

Dr Nyansaho, who also doubles as the Chairman of the Tanzania Electric Supply Company (TANESCO) Board of Directors, proposed the procurement of a special vehicle which would be used to ferry students from their schools to the Nyerere Memorial House to learn what the founder president did during his days of the independence struggle for colonial Tanganyika.

A senior official at the TANAPA pavilion, Herman Baltazary from Mikumi National Park, informed Dr Nyansaho that the aim of participating at the Zanzibar fair was to market the national parks and to attract prospective investors in the lucrative tourism sector.

“Based on the sensitivity of these exhibitions, it has been a good opportunity in meeting tour operators, travel agents and tour guides. The relations with Zanzibar tourism stakeholders create mutual benefits in marketing tourist atrractions available in our national parks,” he said.
