Aikande Kwayu


The space was created. Created to please foreigners. It was loved. Loved as an image more than what it was. The image contributed to the “darling” title. Ironic. The same space was perceived as an obstruction in the inside. So beautiful image outside yet “ugly obstruction” inside. The space was, above all, an address. It held the many among the… Read more →


Reflections on the Kingdom had , on the increase, brought sadness. The King was turning evil. Everyday. Like the former morning star he likened himself to God. Wanting more authority even beyond the earth. Boasting of his future positions in heaven.  The King’s advisors kept lying to him. With praises, they misinterpreted Machiavelli’s “better to be feared than to be loved”… Read more →

Industrialization catalyst – a case for revamping #PublicLibraries in Tanzania

Yesterday I was passing at the Public Library in Moshi and my mind started a marathon! I thought, why is this not one of the main centers in my beautiful town? It looked boring. Old fashion. Unattractive.  I thought where do secondary students hang out on Saturdays and /or evening these days? In my teenage years as well as school holidays,… Read more →

He does not have a university education, he tells me. And it has… Read more →

Without wasting much words,  the New Security Agenda goes beyond tradition security… Read more →

Let’s all go to #GOMBE National Park #Tanzania

It is where the dense forest on various hills habited by chimpanzees meets the deepest lake in Africa, and the second deepest in the entire world. #Gombe national park on the shores of Lake Tanganyika is one other unexplainable marvellous place in Tanzania. Indeed, my trust that Tanzania is the most conserved hence most beautiful country in the world is… Read more →

Can we start with why- and challenge ourselves why is #Kigoma not yet an Eastern and Central African #Tourism centre? MV#Liemba #Ujiji #LakeTanganyika

Kigoma has a rich history. It is the home to over a century old #MVLiemba- a Germany war ship assembled in Lake Tanganyika during the first World War.     (Source: google image) The ship still operates with international routes to DRC and Zambia. (source: photo taken by the author on her phone) Today, I visited the Port of Kigoma… Read more →
