Tunaziba pancha

Everywhere you travel around Arusha you can't help notice an old tyres with something about 'pancha' painted on them. Pancha being the Swahili word for puncture.
These small tyre repair places are usually very quick at being able to locate the source of a puncture (almost a weekly occurrence), and to repair it using old inner tubing and glue.
And fortunately, because of the constant need of such services, it is cheap to have your tyres repaired - 3,000Tsh (about $2).

We often stop to have the air pressure checked and the tyres filled too - 500/= per tyre.
