Authorities in Tanzania are involved in fresh tussles with Indigenous Maasai people from Ngorongoro, this time with those who offered to leave the UNESCO-inscribed world heritage site and move to Msomera, Tanga, who accuse the government of abandoning them and of failing to fulfil its promises.

136 Maasai people from Msomera issued a statement on April 10, 2024, threatening to return to Ngorongoro, where authorities are determined to move people from under the pretext of promoting conservation if the government fails to keep its word.
