Dar es Salaam. Tenants who haven’t settled their rental bills at the Julius Nyerere International Airport (JNIA) have given until 30th September this year to clear their debts or close their businesses.

The directive was issued on Friday by the Minister of Works, Transport and Communication Prof Makame Mbarawa on his tour at the airport.

The tour aimed at addressing various challenges facing service providers at the country's major airport.

Prof Mbarawa said it was crucial for all tenants to meet the requirements of their signed contracts to enable the government collect revenues.

He said, among other things, the money would be spent on improving business infrastructure and other services at the Airport.

The move, he said, would also increase the customers’ turnout. "Anyone who shall not adhere to the September 30 deadline will be removed from our premises," he said.

He added that plans were underway to review the current rents. For their part, the traders asked the government to upgrade the operation services at the airport to match international standards.
