Tanzania’s courtesy is second to none in East Africa. Tanzanian Swahili is pure in form, entertaining to listen to, and exceptionally informative. People take their time in everything they do, and it is considered impolite if you display even a whiff of impatience
Nairobi, save for the notorious traffic, is a fast city, whose residents have fully embraced capitalism and all its debilitating effects on the body, soul and mind. Commercially, it is busy and crowded. The residents bump into you in the streets, eat greasy fries and chicken for lunch and have beer or Coffee in the evening waiting for the traffic to ease. The women have the most dynamic fashion sense. Some sport beach wear in the streets.
Kampala in Uganda is in a class of its own. The numerous bodabodas are a landmark in the city. How they wade through the traffic is something to behold. Luganda is the standard language in the streets and their accented English is amusing. Ugandans never quite bother with Swahili. Bad for them. The oily chicken sold on the roadside may well be defined as standard cuisine for Ugandans and their million ways of preparing matooke
Kigali still reminds a first time visitor of the genocide two decades ago. But it is gradually adopting a certain robotic order, Courtesy of the firm hand of the president Paul Kagame.

PAUL KAGAME PROFILE

Rwanda’s president, Paul Kagame, was born in Gitarama prefecture in October 1957. His family fled the

anti – Tutsi pogroms in 1961 and he grew up in a refugee camp in Uganda.

Juba is the capital and largest city of South Sudan. It also serves as the capital of central Equatorial, the smallest of the ten states of south Sudan. The City is situated on the White Nile and functions as the seat and Metropolis of Juba country. Juba has a tropical wet and dry climate, and, as it lies near the equator, temperatures are hot. However, little rain falls from November to March, which is also the time of the year with the hottest temperatures, reaching 38o in February. Arabic seems to be the Language of business. Big cars are common, a pointer to under development. The most visible habit is roadside tea drinking. Every time seems to be tea time. Even in the Sweltering heat, Individuals sit in unfinished buildings, sheds and roadside eateries to sip hot tea. The tea helps one cool the body, it appears. This is an import from Khartoum. Indeed, many Southerners returned home recently from the North. The young prefer their liquor and shisha, the Ethiopian Communal tobacco – smoking thinga majig
