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. 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 and Saint Johns University). This has brought well deserved work to the people of Dodoma.
