Park entrance fee in TZ-get worried
Entrance to Arusha National Park/ Morogoro Park, and other tourist centres in Tanzania is at a fee and what is being done is that park authorities at the gate and entrances mormally collude with drivers to only receipt the vehicle and some few other people and they pocket the remaining amounts, which is normally in dollars. Further stil, if the case is involving a black from outside East African Community, they normally encourage them to pay as if they are East African citizens, and give them some kick-backs. The park and government authorities need to urgently audit and find a solution to this so that it stops forthwith so that the majority of Tanzanians can benefit from tourism revenue. Automation can also be one of the means to ensure that all revenue is collected.
