The purpose of this study was to examine the challenges and prospects of USA
foreign Aid and Assistance in Tanzania taking Tanzania Electric Supply Company
(TANESCO) as a case study. The study employed qualitative and quantitative
approaches in the process of data analysis; data were collected to those respondents
in Dar-es-salaam. Also convenience and purposive sampling procedures were
adopted as means of obtaining needed respondents. 110 respondents including
MCA-T TANESCO officials and TANESCO customers from Temeke, Ilala and
Kinondoni district in Dar-es-salaam were chosen. Data was collected through
interviews, documentary review and questionnaires.
Study findings reveal that, USA foreign aid and assistance in Tanzania is not
delivered on time. Also, the Tanzania Energy Policy has not been properly enforced
in dealing with electricity problems. Moreover, the study found that there is
monopolistic nature of TANESCO which discourage competition.
Recommendations from the study findings include, TANESCO should establish
other energy resources in generating electricity, promotion of Public Private
Partnership (PPP), government should speed up those projects financed by the US
government, and also, TANESCO should invest heavily in improving its institutional
capacity to deliver services to the customers. This may help the company
(TANESCO) to have a well utilization of the USA foreign aid and assistance in
energy sector in Tanzania.
