The proposed longest bridge in Africa
Tanzania will surpass other African countries in term of building bridges across water body, if the proposed bridge aiming to connect Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam is successful.

President Samia Suluhu Hassan of Tanzania has priority for infrastructural development that will bring about economic providence for the country. One of her infrastructural projects to ensure intra-African trade drives is the proposed bridge.

According to the Deputy Minister of Works and Transportation, Geofrey Kasekenya, the proposed bridge is designed to span through 50 kilometers, connecting the mainland to the Zanzibar Islands to facilitate the movement of people and commerce.

The project which will be funded by the China Overseas Engineering Group Company (COVEC) was born out of an imagination of the citizens of Tanzania living abroad. They projected building a sea bridge to connect Unguja Island and Dar es Salaam.

President Samia Suluhu Hassan took up the idea as an opportunity to boast the economic activity.

Tanzania plans to construct the first bridge in Africa, spanning 50 kilometers, connecting the mainland to the Zanzibar Islands to facilitate the movement of people and commerce. Geofrey Kasekenya, the deputy minister of Works and Transport, said as much in Parliament today, April 28. He also mentioned that the negotiations, which started on March 11, 2023, are already far along.-,

According to Kasekenya, the prospective investors of M/S China Overseas Engineering Group Company (COVEC) who have expressed interest in helping to build the bridge were met by both sides.

This initiative is hardly a surprise owing to the fact that Tanzania's president, Samia Suluhu Hassan, has made intra Africa trade a huge agenda item for her administration. She has placed emphasis on improving trade relations between Tanzania and other East African countries, even going so far as to express interest in trading with West Africa.
