In Dar es Salaam, due to scarcity of clean tap water... at the time of downpour, many people collect water for domestic use and save water bills.
In another side.... due to poor road and wasterwater systems, when it rains, roads becomes the drainage channels Pedestrians are not spared.
In some places, when it rains, it creates temporary jobs.... new business starts.... carrying people across the water bodies for a pay averaging 20 cents of USD. Sometimes more depending on the area and how wealthy you are!! They look the way you have dressed and of course your body weight.
But when come for transport network, it is a worst time for travelling in some areas

Ni lini Serikali yetu itafungua macho na kurekebisha hali hii. Matumizi ya kodi kwenye mafuta, mazao, leseni za biashara nk kwa nini zisielekezwe kwenye maeneo husika kuboresha hali hii?
