President Magufuli suggests name for record-breaking bridge in East Africa (Photos)

 The 680m-long cable-stayed bridge is opening in Tanzania's commercial capital, Dar es Salaam, yesterday.
The Tanzanian President John Magufuli has officially opened the bridge by cutting the ceremonial ribbon:


Hundreds of people turned up to try the bridge out:

Our source say that the President has suggested a name:  ''Pres Magufuli proposes that the newly built largest suspension#bridge in East Africa be named 'Nyerere bridge' #Tanzania''

The bridge opens yesterday which connects Tanzania's central business district to Kigamboni, where there had been plans to develop a satellite city.

The cable-stayed bridge has a similar appearance to a suspension bridge.
It's 680m long, and cost more than $140m (£98m).
And it enters the world of superlatives.

The Tanzanian state newspaper the Daily News says it is the longest cable-stayed bridge in East Africa. 

The authorities hope it will end a traffic bottle neck around the car ferry.And our sources believes it is Tanzania's first toll bridge.
Whether Cameroon government go make wah own to ohhh. Seriously Cameroon government need to step up their game.
