Before leaving Dar es Salaam, we manage to meet representatives of Simba Football Club (champions of Tanzania) and the Tanzanian Football Federation. We have now been promised shirts from Africa Lyon, Simba FC and the Tanzanian National Team. The TFF Information Officer, Florian Kaijage, is also going to try and get us shirts from many more Tanzanian Premier League teams in time for the 2010 World Cup.
A lovely lady and excellent journalist from the Citizen Newspaper interviews us for thirty minutes just before we get on the road again but there was still time for Africa Time (hence known as AT) to claim 2 more victims with both the Guardian Newspaper and the ITV television people failing to show up at all.
Battling flash floods, Mr Oswald Kasaizi and his brilliant team at REDESO help us to get on our way. REDESO are doing some excellent work in Tanzania and Mr Kasaizi will undoubtedly remain one of the real ‘stars’ of our African adventure. I would like to personally thank Oswald for his great hospitality and help.
