    Typical Tanzania monkey #ish Do something now, Regret it Later. u think this man has no certified secuirty at his housse and in addition to a couple of gunnsss, if it was so easy to grab the man there would have been previous attempts on him atleast. . . . this is the goverment trying to get gansta on the boy for claiming false immunity and tax evading….its dangerous to say the least. Because Tanzania is still very much a – she – nation! And thats not refrering to her millitary status but just her general network with the outside world. But if the most educated elite snobs running the country would even stop to commision a damage report of last time this country had a civil meltdown with an African external country. “OMAN” a pricise honest and accurate, Damage Report. Lol…theyd reaalise…knowledge is the real power and not muscles or gunns!
