Tanzania – update on the progress of the Serengeti Highway.

Despite world protest and a recent offer from the World Bank, Jakaya Kikwete, President of Tanzania, states that the northern route through the Serengeti will be built.

Recently, a leading Pan-African organization dealing with human rights and animal welfare has filed a case at the East African Court of Justice (EACJ) in Arusha, against the proposed construction of a highway through Serengeti plains.

The African Network for Animal Welfare is seeking an interim order of injunction to restrain the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania from constructing the proposed Arusha-Musoma highway which is reportedly going to cut through the Serengeti National Park.

Lawyer Saitabao ole Kanchory of Kanchory & Co Advocates representing the Africa Network for Animal Welfare (ANAW) filed the case at the EACJ chambers located within the Arusha International Conference Centre complex. With this case in court, it may buy a little more time. More time to get more people participating in charting a positive way forward for our wildlife and local communities in Serengeti.
