Scientific experts from across the world are converging at a remote site near the Ngorongoro crater to witness the event amid controversy on how the 3.6 million-year old footprints should be best preserved.

Mr Donatus Kamamba, the director of Antiquities in the ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism told The Citizen on the phone yesterday that the exercise would last for seven days.

He said archaeological experts from within and outside the country would oversee the digging of the ash bed with the footprints to get a clue of its state.

"After that the experts may decide on the best way they should be preserved either by relocating them elsewhere or leaving them at the same site," he added.

Mr Kamamba, who previously opposed the idea of moving away the footprint track way that was buried in 1995, said he was not sure of the next host for the famous archeological relics.

There should be a projectile hurl warning preceding every instance of her picture; like the Helen Thomas warnings.
