Arusha tackles noise pollution

Plans to ban noisy activities in the city

Authorities in Arusha are proposing new by-laws to control noise pollution from loudhailers promoting businesses, political rallies and amplified singing by religious choirs.

The proposals follow growing complaints from the public about noise from vehicles booming commercial messages and music to advertise shops and businesses.

The new by-laws will affect nightclubs, bars and travelling shows, as well as shop owners and touts who rely on noisy hawking and advertising to attract customers.
