Is true that I am currently working with IRDP as the lecturer. This project has not yet started, however, I have been using my efforts to impart settlement planning knowledge to the local leaders but merely in a friendly way that has got no legal binding. I am planning to chip in this idea as among the agendas to be discussed in a local assembly about the future of Veyula as rapidly urbanizing informal settlements. The output of discussion together with the capacity building to local leaders will give them impetus to regulate development of their settlement. This will be possible at Veyula because local leaders in Tanzania are highly respected due to powers that are vested upon them. For instance a Ward Executive Officers have arresting power, and therefore they can use it to arrest whoever is violating the law or bylaw.
