Why Tanzania has canceled Independence Day Celebrations
After the government diverted funds intended for independence day festivities to construct dormitories, hundreds of special needs youngsters in Tanzania are about to enroll in boarding schools.
The $445,000 (£364,000) that had been allocated for Friday’s 61st Independence Day celebrations will now go toward enhancing schools.
Eight rural special needs schools will have dormitories built, according to President Samia Suluhu, to make it easier for many students to travel the daily 5–10 km (3-5 miles) or more to get to school.

According to the administration, the action was taken to enhance the learning environment for kids with special needs.
George Simbachawene, Tanzania’s minister of state, said on Monday that the funds had been distributed. He stated that in honor of Independence Day, public discussions on development will be held in the nation of East Africa.
Celebrations of Independence Day are typically marked by pomp and state banquets.
Tanzania has postponed the festivities before, though not this time.
In 2015, the country’s then-President John Magufuli canceled celebrations and used the money to build a road in Dar es Salaam, the commercial center.
He repeated it in 2020 and instructed that medical facility purchases be made from the budget.
