MINJINGU, villagers have a reason to jubilate, thanks to a tour company for building a modern police station worth $49,000, equivalent to 80m/-.
Tanzanian tour firm -- Kibo Guides (T) Ltd—is the company behind the police station, touted as the most contemporary ever in the entire Manyara region.
The firm’s management says that they have decided to fund the whole project in the spirit of sharing whatever small profits they get, with the community, where they operate.
Manyara Regional Police Commander, Akili Mpwapwa, commended the company for its patriotism attitude, saying the police station would cater for about 10,000 residents of Nkaiti ward in Babati rural district.
“This is a patriotism spirit and we urge other companies to borrow a leaf in complementing the government efforts,” Mr Mpwapwa said over the weekend during the project handing over ceremony.  
For his part, the Kibo Guides Managing Director who is also the Chairman of Tanzania Association of Tour Operators (TATO), Mr Willy Chambullo said he constructed the police station not with intention to detain people, but to secure the community.
“I have built this police station single handedly, not because I have a lot of money, but I have sacrificed with my family because I know change is brought by an individual with a willing heart,” Chambullo said.
Manyara Region Commissioner, Mr. Erasto Mbwillo implored other investors to support the community’s development where they do business.
“It’s very unfortunate that some investors are not walking the talk, they promise to do something for the community, but they do not fulfill. This is against the investment policy which requires investors to share profits with the community” Mbwillo explained.
The Executive officer of Tanzania Association of Tour Operators (TATO), Sirili Akko said that the police station was one of the supports provided by the tour operators.
More recently, TATO members have been in fore front in various social corporate activities, specifically during, and after the deadly bomb attacks in Arusha, where they had successfully managed to raise more than 70 millions collectively for the victims and hospitals supplies.
