This was said yesterday by Dar es Salaam Centre for Architectural Heritage (Darch) chief executive officer Aida Mulokozi at the Dar es Salaam Heritage Day forum held at the National Museum. The forum focused on promoting public awareness on the preservation of national heritage.
Ms Mulokozi said there were only 25 buildings exempted from demolition, which made other buildings be listed for demolition, something that threatened Tanzania's historical attractions and identities.
"We encourage local communities and Dar es Salaam residents to consider the importance of cultural and architectural heritage for their lives, identity and society at large. This is to promote cultural and architectural diversity. So, concerted effort is needed to protect and conserve it," she explained.
