INTRODUCTION

Welcome to Dodoma's first portal website where you will be able to find all information about the beautiful Capital City and its surrounding areas. Most of Dodoma City is relatively new and was built after it was designated the new Capital of Tanzania in 1973. In 2016 it was declared the official Capital City of Tanzania and the transfer of ministries and departments has started in 2017 with great speed. Time for this website to plays its role and please join us while you can.

The Capital Development Plan looked for many years a white elephant but in the last years the town has boomed mainly through the arrival of 2 universities (Dodoma University UDOM, Saint Johns University and the Institute for Development Planning.
