Residents on Magore Street in DSM, Tanzania, are subjected to loud pounding music from the army starting often at 4-30am -7.00am every Friday morning!
The last few months they have also started pounding metal for 2-4 hours a day!

We also have Diamond Jubilee hall and other venues around that have functions where music goes on till 2.00am or longer in the night. This with Tumaini Hospital being just down the road!

Is it necessary for people to have functions that the entire city can hear???

Research has consistently shown that noise pollution is detrimental to the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well being on human beings. It also has an effect of the development of children and students, and affects the elderly too.

This is not a first! Complaints have been made to the media and the government numerous times and the issue seems to be getting worse and worse!

Where is the sensitivity of the people organizing these events?

WHEN IS THE NOISE POLLUTION IN THIS COUNTRY GOING TO END!??????
