All roads leading to Fumba

Fumba Town is getting two top-notch public roads and public water access, all to be completed this year.

Finally, two brand new tarmac roads will connect Fumba Town to the rest of the world. The roadwork is in the making and expected to be completed within weeks latest by November according to the contractor. The government has contracted Turkish company IRIS ASER in a joint venture to develop a network of feeder roads all over the island with a total of about 275 kilometres.


The road from Dimani market to the Fumba Town gate (1.3 km) and further up to the waterfront (500 metres) is part of the package, as well as a road from Nyamanzi to Kombeni (1 km), explained Taner Baskiran of the Turklsh contractor.


Residents of both villages and Fumba Town dwellers are eagerly following progress.Meanwhile, the Zanzibar Minister of Water, Energy and Minerals, Shaib H. Kaduara, visited Fumba Town alongside an on-going water extension on the Fumba peninsula. Public water pipes are currently being installed. So far, the new suburb Fumba Town has been relying entirely on its own wells and water supply. Fresh water is expected to become less costly once the public system is installed. Tobias Dietzold, chief of product of Fumba Town developer CPS, hosted the Minister and took him around the new town. “We had a fruitful discussion about the connectivity”, said Dietzold. Minister Kaduara ensured a “reliable infrastructure”. Fumba Town is one of the most significant investments in Zanzibar.
