    Discovery of natural gas in some years ago, Environmentalists even the government persuaded us that gas would be an alternative to the solution to the energy acquisition problems, something different from the situation we are facing now.

    Increasing of the price of the gas has now caused even those with gas jars not thinking anymore filling them. Charcoal and fire woods remains the only solution.

    According to the current information is that Dar es Salaam and Mwanza are the leading consumers of the charcoal regardless of our expectations that these cities and town centres could be and examples for leading the campaign of anti-charcoal and fire woods dependence as the main sources of energy.
    It has been said these cities have contributed much to the increased exploitation of the forests in the other regions, approximated to reach 300,000 to 400,000 hectares of natural forests disappearing from charcoal making each year. This is much and worse for the sustainability of our nature.

    Gas price is too high and not friendly to the users but also to the Environment;
    let’s fight for its deceleration.
