According to the 2002 Tanzania National Census, the population of Karagwe District was 425,476. Small lakes such as the Ikimba, Burigi, Rushwa, and Rwakajunju provide fishing opportunities for residents of the Karagwe District.

History

Near the end of the 18th century, Karagwe's prosperity became well known and traders came to barter salt, pepper, oranges, copper, and millet for local

goods. Around 1800, beans and cooking bananas were introduced from Uganda. Early in the 1840s, Arabs arrived and trade flourished, especially the slave trade. The cowrie was introduced as hard currency and many new crops were introduced (e.g. sweet banana, tomatoes, maize, cassava, pawpaw, vegetables and citrus fruits). Throughout the 1890s, Karagwe was ravaged by local wars, epidemics, and pests. The outbreak of rinderpest and smallpox reduced human and livestock population. Tribal wars were eventually settled by the German authorities in Bukoba). Around 1900, commercial coffee growing was introduced by the Germans, which was further developed under British rule. Coffee production was mainly sold in Great Britain. In 1935, coffee processing industries in Bukoba were established by the Indians. During and after the Second World War, the first farmer associations were established and many farmers migrated from Bukoba to Karagwe. During the late 1990s, 165,000 refugees from Rwanda were divided over five camps in the Karagwe District.

Mafia

Mafia Island ("Chole Shamba") is part of the Tanzanian Spice Islands, together with Unguja and Pemba. As one of the six districts of the Pwani Region, Mafia Island is governed from the mainland, not from the semiautonomous region of Zanzibar, of which it has never been considered to be a part. According to the 2002 Tanzania census, the population of the Mafia District was 40,801.[1] The economy is based on fishing, subsistence agriculture and the market in Kilindoni. The island attracts some tourists, mainly adventure scuba divers, game fishermen, and people wanting relaxation.

Geography

The Mafia archipelago consists of one large island (394 km²) and numerous smaller ones. Some of these are inhabited, such as Chole Island (2 km²), with a population of 800. Chole Bay, Mafia's protected deep-water anchorage and original harbour, is studded with islands, sandbanks and beaches. The main town is Kilindoni. The stretch of water between the deltas of the Rufiji River and the island is called Mafia Channel. There are popular rumours of pygmy hippo on the island but there are zero confirmed sightings.

History

Mafia Island's history goes back to the 8th century. The island once played a major role in ancient trade between the people of the Far East and East Africa. It was a regular stop for Arab boats. On the tiny island of Chole Mjini, just offshore in Chole Bay, once stood a settlement that constituted one of the most important towns controlling trade from the silver mines of Eastern Zimbabwe, which reached the town via the old ports of Kilwa and Michangani. In the mid 1820s, the town of Kua on Juani Island was attacked by Sakalava cannibals arriving from Madagascar with 80 canoes, who ate many of the locals and took the rest into slavery.[citation needed] Under a treaty of 1890, Germany took control of Mafia and constructed the buildings still evident on Chole. Germany paid Sultan Sayyid Ali bin Said alSaid of Oman M 4 million for both the island and part of the mainland coast. In January 1915, Mafia was taken by British troops as a base for the air and sea assault on the light cruiser Königsberg. The name "Mafia" derives from the Arabic morfiyeh, meaning "group" or "archipelago", or from the Swahili mahali pa afya, meaning "a healthy dwelling-place". In 1995 Mafia Island had financial help from the WWF to make a natural marine wildlife centre instead of making the island a tourist resort, but tourists still go to the marine wildlife centre. Tanzania's first multi-user marine park at Mafia Island was established following management recommendations and data from surveys conducted by the Society for Environmental Exploration. [2]

Wards

Tabora Municipality is the headquarter of Tabora region, located in the western part of Tanzania, and comprises six districts: Tabora Municipal, Tabora rural, Urambo, Igunga, Sikonge and Nzega. The history of Tabora town can be traced back to 1830 when it was called "Unyamwezi". During the slave trade in mid 1840s, the Arabs constructed a base in the town. The name Tabora then emerged from the ethnic Nyamwezi (the largest tribe in the region) word "MATOBOLWA" meaning dried boiled sweet potatoes. Tabora Municipality borders Uyui district in the east, north and west and Sikonge district in the south, and is 800 km west of Dar es salaam, 320 km east of Kigoma port on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, and 360 km south of Mwanza city. The climate of the district is generally hot (20 to 32 degrees), with relative humidity ranging from 25 to 65%, and the rain fall ranges from 650 to 850 mm per year. The Municipality is projected to have a total population of 197,825 people according to the 2002 census and a growth rate of 2.36 annually; within the jurisdiction area of 1092.26 square kilometres. The literacy rate of the population in Tabora Municipality is 56% which has implications for health awareness. The Municipality is reasonably well connected through rail, roads and air services, although the main means of transportation is the railway. Even though the roads cover a fairly large percentage of the municipality, the condition of the roads has been

deteriorating due to lack of funds for maintenance and the building of new roads, and this adversely impacts access to health care services. In the municipality, agriculture is the main economic activity, focusing on maize, rice, groundnuts, beans, cowpeas, cassava, sweat potatoes and tobacco. Tabora is also famous for beekeeping (honey and beeswax) and forest timbering activities. Livestock farming is also an important economic activity in the region. Much of the arable land in Tabora Municipality has been degraded due to poor irrigation practices and an increasing demand for land for agriculture, grazing and firewood. The industrial sector employs about 8929 people, 13.5% of which are in the formal sector. There are various commercial activities varying in size and encompassing various retail activities such as groceries, stationery, hotel, bars, guesthouses, restaurants, cinema, pharmacies etc. Commercial activities are mainly concentrated in the central area, while the rural areas are largely poorly serviced. In summary, the low incomes of the population, low productivity of land, and the existence of poor infrastructure influences the low health quality of the population and their access to health services. Tabora acquired a Township council status in 1958 and was raised to municipal council July 1988. Administratively, the Municipality is subdivided into 21 wards; 8 rural and 13 urban. The urban wards are subdivided into 116 streets, while the rural wards are subdivided into 24 villages that are further subdivided into 117 hamlets. The Municipal council has 9 departments: health, finance, economic planning and trade, education, agriculture, livestock and cooperatives, community development, works, town planning and environment, and administration and personnel. Municipality's economic base depends on the services sector provided by both central and local governments. Other economic activities in the Municipality are public services, commerce, small enterprises, industry, small-scale agriculture and forestry.

Handeni According to the 2002 Tanzania National Census, the population of the Handeni District was 248,633.

Introduction Handeni District Council has earmarked a number of specific types and areas for investment based on a study conducted by a consultant. These are in fruit growing, vegetable farming, dairying, sheep rearing, rubber production, honey production and processing, small-scale mining, cultural tourism, tourist hotel development and marketing. This chapter first discusses the categories of investment opportunities identified and then presents more details on specific types and locations for investment. A map shows the opportunities by type and locations.

The Main Categories of Investments

The identification of the investment opportunities is divided in two categories, namely direct investment and market linkages. Direct investment involves attracting investors, both local and foreign, to bring in capital to invest in the District by setting up facilities either to process raw materials into finished products or carry out large scale farming and livestock keeping by using the available land which is presently underutilized in the District. Market linkages involve connecting farmers and other producers with companies that have access to markets and so are willing to buy the products from them. In the market linkage approach, it is expected that the market dealer/facilitator will be in a position to support the farmers/livestock keepers and beekeepers with skills on crop husbandry, post harvest, processing and quality control. Farmers and producers are easier to work with when organized in groups than when acting individually. Access to markets is one of the problems facing rural communities, particularly to farmers, as they lack good information on where the markets can be found and the prices that can be obtained. This has been the case, for example, with mango production where farmers cannot realize good economic benefits due to marketing problems. Similarly, citrus and bananas are grown in large amounts in such areas like Segera, Mailikumi, Michungwani, Kabuku, Mgambo, Chogo and Gendagenda villages but marketing is a bottleneck. Villagers are unable to obtain better incomes and reduce spoilage because of poor road networks and little knowledge on processing. Beekeeping for honey production is not a major problem, but accessibility to good and stable markets is a bottleneck. Beekeepers are organized in associations, which make it easy to mobilize production and provide extension services. The local communities have the skills to undertake the activity; while what is most required is for them to be linked with the buyers of honey and wax.

Pongwe

Pogwe is a village within Kang'ata ward in Handeni District. In ponge village there is a natural spring water place called Kwekibaya. Kwekibaya is the only source of water for thousands of people and animals from neaby villages: Msaje, Kwaluwala, Kwedinguzu, Kwamagome, Komwale, Kwavulata, etc. The original people from this place are called Wapongwe (Samwepongwe for male and Mnamweponge for women).

Kwekibaya is without its miracle. For example, if a person not belonging to Wapongwe clean the water source (the place where water is actually coming out to the surface), kwekibaya dries out. If such incident happens, it is only wapongwe family member who can please the natural spring to give out water again. Because of the importance of kwekibaya, there is a chain of family leaders among the wapongwe who guide the community in managing the kibaya in particular and general resources such as deforestation issues (which forest is a reserved one). The last leader of wapongwe is Mkulago (1942-2006). Mkulago died on the 28th April 2006 and lied to rest on the 30th April 2006 in the Mtonger forest.

Lushoto

Lushoto (German: Wilhelmstal, "William's Valley" named after Emperor Wilhelm II) is one of the eight districts of Tanga Region in Tanzania. It is bordered to the northeast by Kenya, to the east by the Muheza District, to the northwest by the Kilimanjaro Region and to the south by the Korogwe District. During the German colonial period from the 1890s to 1918 the area was popular with settlers, hence the German place name of Wilhelmstal. Large farms and plantations were created, and the district was valued for its pleasant mountain climate. Numerous Church missions were, and remain, active. Between 1893 and 1911 the German Ostafrikanische Eisenbahngesellschaft (East African Railway Cooperation), constructed an important railway line starting at Tanga on the coast and passing along the Usambara Mountains with a station established at Mombo, about 20 kilometers from Wilhelmstal, to "New" Moshi at Kilamanjaro. The initial plan of the Usambarabahn was to connect the port of Tanga with Lake Victoria by passing south of the Usambara Mountains. This was in direct competition with parallel British efforts in colonial Kenya. From 4th of June 1912 to 12th of May 1913 the line was renamed Nordbahn (Northern Railway) for a short period. According to the 2002 Tanzania National Census, the population of the Lushoto District was 419,970.[1]

Tanga

Tanga is both the name of the most northerly seaport city of Tanzania, and the surrounding Tanga Region. It is the Regional Headquarters of the region. With a population of 243,580 in 2002, Tanga is one of the largest cities in the country. It is a quiet city compared to, for example, Arusha or Moshi with a comparable number of inhabitants. The city of Tanga sits on the Indian Ocean, near the border with Kenya. Major exports from the port of Tanga include sisal, coffee, tea, and cotton. Tanga is also an important railroad terminus, connecting much of the northern Tanzanian interior with the sea. Via the Tanzania Railways Corporation's Link Line and Central Line, Tanga is linked to the African Great Lakes region and the Tanzanian economic capital of Dar es Salaam. The city is served by Tanga Airport.

History

Tanga was chosen in 1889 as a military post of German East Africa, and became a district office in 1891. The local economy was based on sisal, which had been brought to the colony several years earlier, and population in the area grew rapidly. The town was also established as the terminus of the Usambara railway line, which runs inland to Moshi at the foot of Kilimanjaro.

The name Tanga comes from the word for farm or cultivated land in several of the local languages (including Sambaa, Bondei, and Zigua).[citation needed] Tanga gave its name to Tanganyika, the territory which in 1964 joined with the island of Zanzibar to for the modern nation of Tanzania. As the coastal town closest to Kenya, Tanga was on the front line at the outset of World War I. A British landing was thrown back on 4 November 1914 in the Battle of Tanga, and the town was not taken until 7 July 1916.
