Tanzania’s president, John Magufuli, has committed to the entire government’s move to Dodoma, the country’s new capital, by the end of 2019.

Dodoma, which rose to city status last year, was designated as the capital in 1973 by the founding president of the country, Mwalimu Julius Nyerere.

Magufuli, who changed his vote address to Dodoma last week, told reporters that he had finally shifted his presidential base from Dar es Salaam to Dodoma.

He also urged Tanzania to vote in the next November 14th civilian elections.

Following the relocation of 2017 from the country’s prime minister, Kassim Majaliwa, to Dodoma, following several ministries and vice presidents Samia Suluhu Hassan, the entire Tanzanian government is now being formed in the new capital.
