The State Party confirms that the proposed road will not dissect the Serengeti National Park and therefore will not affect the migration and conservation values of the Property. — Tanzanian Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism
The proposed Serengeti Highway has been cancelled. The government in Tanzania has backed down under intense international pressure.
Had the disastrous highway gone ahead it would have cut across the Serengeti Park blocking a major migration route for wildebeest.
A battle has been won, but the struggle to save the Serengeti goes on. Roads will still be constructed up to the edges of the park. The pressures on the Serengeti, including a commercial corridor to Uganda, still exist. The highway across the Serengeti has been proposed three times now, and can be raised again. But yes, let’s congratulate ourselves on the work we’ve done.
And the function of the highway? To aid the rape and pillage of Africa’s resources by the Chinese.
