In The News: No Death Penalty For Ghailani, Nyerere Remembered

  • The New York Times is reporting that the US Justice Department will not be seeking the death penalty in their prosecution of Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, the Tanzanian man accused of conspiring in the 1998 bombing of US Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.
  • Tanzania ranks 151st in the ‘desirable places to live’ list of countries. Norway was voted the ‘most desirable’ with Niger the ‘least desirable.’
  • Meanwhile, in his Art Column in The East African this week, Frank Whalley writes eloquently about the popular Tanzanian art movement known to its practitioners as ‘Tingatinga’ and its influence on Tanzanian artists in general.
