Dodoma City 

Dodoma is the legislative capital of Tanzania and is the administrative capital of both Dodoma Municipal Council and the entire Dodoma Region, with a population of 765,179.

Originally a small market town known as Idodomya, the modern Dodoma was founded in 1907 by German colonists during construction of the Tanzanian central railway.

In 1974, the Tanzanian government announced that Tanzania’s federal capital would be moved from Dar es Salaam to Dodoma for social and economic reasons and to centralise the capital within the country.

In May 2023, the national government under President Samia Suluhu unveiled the new State House in Dodoma in a historic event stamping the relocation of government duties to the city.

As a result, Dar es Salaam remained the commercial and maritime capital of Tanzania with Dodoma retaining the state house Ikulu, and a large number of government functions.
