IN recent weeks I have been asking myself how we got here with so much infrastructure. Never in the history of this country was it possible to drive from Bukoba to Mtwara on a nice road. Or from Mwanza to Tanga via Babati and Arusha. For $20, I can visit my in-laws residing some 1,200 kms away, by just hopping on a bus.

HUMAN creativity never ceases to amaze me, so much so that I guess it amazes even the devil, who shouldn’t at all be, considering that, he isn’t amazed by shocking happenings like the butchery of innocent civilians in war-torn countries. A brilliant example of creativity is the expression ‘doing the needful’.

It is a known fact that everybody likes the ‘assets’, there would be hardly anybody who would like the ‘liability’ of any nature. But even if we don’t like this liability, can we completely weed it out from our day-to-day life.

PEOPLE who are a Satan-loving rather than God-fearing species mock journalists as a bunch of rumour mongers. It’s because in some cases, their coverage isn’t sweet.

MY article of last week in this column, was about the annually celebrated January event of the Zanzibar revolution, in which I described the details of what actually happened in the dead of night on January 11, 1964, Hence, considering the fact that the relevant celebrations took place only two weeks ago on the due date, which was January 12th, 2017; it can be assumed that we are still ‘sunbathing’, so to speak, in the joyous mood of those celebrations that are held in commemoration of that historic Zanzibar Revolution.
