Campaigning for cycle parking in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

On 31st July 2010 cyclists gathered at Mlimani City Shopping Centre to complain about the policy of Mlimani city to forbid cyclists from parking in the parking area. UWABA has been following up on this issue with Mlimani City management since 2007 and requesting replies to our letters but we have never received a written reply. About 20 cyclists gathered in the presence of camera crews from Channel 10 news to complain and management agreed verbally to change this policy and to put in place parking facilities for bicycles.  In subsequent days cyclists tested whether the policy has been implemented by visiting the shopping centre on bicycle and found that Mlimani City now allows cyclists into the parking area, therefore this has been a successful campaign.Campaigning for cycle parking
