China’s CRJE To Build African Court Headquarters
The US$26 million project will be built in Arusha, Tanzania.
China’s CRJE (East Africa) will construct the African Court on Human and People’s Rights headquarters in Arusha, Tanzania, The East African reports.
The headquarters will be built on 24 hectares provided by the government in Laki Laki, on the outskirts of Arusha. It will be near the UN Mechanism for International Tribunals (formerly the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda). The African Court is currently a tenant in the Tanzania National Parks main office building.
Construction is expected to be completed in 2025.
The project will cost Tsh 61 billion (US$25.8 million), with Tanzania contributing Tsh 9.4 billion (US$3.7 million). The East African said the court will seek additional funding from partners.
Chinese companies continue to be active in Africa with several major project wins this year, including Sinohydro's US$970 million deal to build the Congo-Kinshasa urban railway project in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and China Sinoma International Engineering's US$580 million contract to build a cement production line in Nigeria.
In April, China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation won a US$45 million tender to build the new headquarters of The Intergovernmental Authority on Development in Djibouti.
