AfA #50 – Tansania

Featuring Edwin Sosthenes

But furthermore, this informative interview leaves no Tanzanian topic untouched: Being it the diverse ethnic and geographic composition (e.g. Kilimanjaro), the union between Tanganyika & Zanzibar or the legacy of the first president Julius Nyerere (see picture) who had a long-lasting impact on many African independence movements.
