Tanzania's Indepence Day Chaos













We didn't think our newly elected President John Magufuli really meant what he said when he cancelled independence day celebrations (No fighter jets, no bondias breaking concrete blocks on their heads...oh the sadness)  and replaced them with a clean-up campaign "It would be "shameful" to spend huge sums of money on the celebrations when "our people are dying of cholera" he said,as reported. Cholera has killed about 60 people in Tanzania in the last three months. it was all fun and games until 9h December when we all got out and did some cleaning around our neighbourhoods...but we werent alone...so did .. Mister President himself, and the prime minister and the former president and the Vice President...NICE! I was driving by and seeing all the streets of Dar ES Salaam being cleaned up by loyal citizens...I honestly was impressed and proud...
