Your question "How long can we go on like this?" refers...
If I understand the question, you are concerned that new road
construction in Dar seems to have caused demolition of many buildings
near the route.
For a similar example, the new road through Kibera, Nairobi caused a lot
of changes to a very well mapped area.
IMHO the answer is that "this" will go on a great deal. We can't freeze
Africa is developing fast, and for decades ahead there will be a lot of
changes to be mapped by very few mappers.
I think the best solution for OSM is to grow local mapping interest and
capacity in TZ so data damage is patched rapidly.
