Abstract

The northern boundary of Vingunguti is formed by the Msimbazi river valley. Most residential buildings along the river valley are affected by flooding, while Majengo, Kombo and Mji Mpya subwards are particulary vulnerable. The reasons are much the same as for Tabata: human economic activities has led to an increase of river width, reducing the river valley’s holding-capacity of water. To prevent damage, local residents of Vingunguti have engaged in initiatives to clean the river valley.
