The good, the bad and the ugly of the German colonial legacy
All railway stations along the German-built central railway line depict German features
„All railway stations along the German-built central railway line depict German features. We see this in Dar es Salaam, and it is heartening to learn that the old Dar es Salaam Railway Station building is not to be demolished in the light of the new SGR station.
Other impressive railway station buildings are to be found at Dodoma, Tabora, Kigoma and elsewhere. There are also other impressive German buildings like the Ocean Road Hospital in Dar es Salaam. These buildings are in a poor condition and need maintenance and restoration. They need to be preserved. “
