This is one of those unbelievable things that happen. Please read.

Elections are over, but it’s not anticipated that President Kikwete will announce a decision soon.

There is a delegation from the UNESCO World Heritage Centre going to the Serengeti sometime this month, though it may be awhile before we see a report, if one is made public.

February 1 is the deadline for a report to the World Heritage Centre by the Tanzania delegation. In their last report the Centre said that it:

“Requests furthermore the State Party to submit to the World Heritage Centre, by 1 February 2011, a report on the state of conservation of the property, including on the status of the North Road proposal, sustainable water management policies for the Mara River, and the status of poaching, for examination by the World Heritage Committee at its 35th session in 2011.”

This might spark a decision.
