Newala is one of the five administrative districts of Mtwara Region of Tanzania. Newala district draws its name from the Makonde word “niwaala” which literally means “welcome”. It was the German administrators who coined the name Newala (from the original word “niwaala”) while in search of water for construction of the old ‘boma’ in the early 19th Century, when they entered a well / water area where people were washing themselves. By the time they were ready they indicated “niawaala”.
