The people of Ololosokwan who are educated agreed to hold a phone conference to discuss and deliberate on the land matters. The particular subject of the day was the on-going lease negotiations between the village and Andbeyond Tanzania Ltd.
The conference, enabled by the Airtel Jirushe Tarrif, took off exactly as arranged and by the people who confirmed participation. Find the minutes in this page.
It was an historic moment for the people of Ololosokwan to connect Biharamulo, Kahama, Mbulu, Arumeru, Arusha and Ololosokwan as if the people were in the same room.
What is even more important was the passion and skills people put in the discussions, it all showed that we took the matter seriously. It is both a product of technology and education, John Parmwat rightly remarked.
I being on the ground, I got to listen to your contributions and the voices behind, I must say that you did your community a great service, and I for one am very proud.
