The Government has underscored the need for paying attention to the aspect of knowledge transfer in the standard gauge railway (SGR) contract, it has been learnt.

Works, Transport and Communication Minister, Prof. Makame Mbarawa, highlighted this need recently when he inspected construction of the Dar es Salaam to Morogoro railway line between Soga and Pugu, by reminding Reli Assets Holding Company (Rahco) that the country will need personnel well trained and capable of running and managing the railway system once the project is completed.

 According to the minister, as the contract between the Government and the contractor provides for training of local experts, it was incumbent on Rahco to fully utilize the provision so as to ensure that the country has a sufficient number of experts once the railway becomes operational.

Prof. Mbarawa directed Rahco to urgently work towards training of young Tanzanians for them to acquire requisite knowledge and expertise needed to manage the state- of –the- art railway system.

“This part of the project will be completed in two years…if we don’t invest in training and giving necessary exposure to local personnel, we would have built a modern railway that none of our people could operate, which would be unfortunate,” said Prof. Mbarawa.

According to the minister, work done on the Dar es Salaam to Morogoro section is 5.86 percent, which is less than the expected 6.8 percent, a fact which he attributed to recent heavy rains in the area.
