Happy Birthday Tanganyika! (Heri ya siku ya kuzaliwa!))

tz call

It’s the 9/12 tomorrow which means we are going to be having a huge birthday bash this side of the Lake Victoria!

Tanganyika turns 53 tomorrow and we are so proud of our motherland! Yes I said Tanganyika and not Tanzania cuz thats a whole different thing.  FYI Tanganyika came first then Tanzania (Tanganyika + Zanzibar) followed.

So do join me in wishing my country and my fellow countrymen and women a lovely 53rd with many more to come of course.

Mungu ibariki Afrika, mungu ibariki Tanzania!


Heri ya siku yangu ya kuzaliwa!!!

So yeahs it’s that special day for me, another year older…only 21 I am (ha!)

My ‘dada‘ got me a ‘keki’ and brought it all the way from London but it didn’t quite survive the ‘safari‘ unfortunately and this is all we could salvage…….

BALIStill very grateful for yet another ‘mwaka’, nashukuru! ‘Inshallah‘, I’ll be doing a similar post next year.



(First person to tell me what those Swahili words mean might just score free Swahili lessons with me…say 5 intense hourly lessons?!!)
