“They do not cultivate, and if they have nothing to do in the area, they should return it to the people. Singida Regional Commissioner, go there and start the process of reducing the area so that there are available plots to distribute to the people. I hear they are renting them for shs. 50,000. ”
“I know they cannot cultivate all 5,000 acres. Go and reduce them to 2,500 acres so that they can be distributed to the people. It would be in the city here in Ilongero, we would say they want to survey the plots and I would forgive them, but far away they must return the area to the people, ”he said and aroused the joy of the people.
He urged the people when they are given the area, to cultivate hard so that their produce can be sold in the city and in Ilongero ward.
