Tan­z­a­nia Part 5. Agen­da, Safa­ris and Poaching

Tan­z­a­nia is a popu­lar tou­rist desti­na­ti­on for safa­ris. Wild­life such as ele­phants, lions and zebras can be obser­ved in the wild. In order to pro­tect the natio­nal parks sus­tain­ab­ly, high ent­rance fees are char­ged for access. This is also to finan­ce and moti­va­te the ran­gers who are sup­po­sed to pro­tect the wild­life from poaching.

Unli­ke her pre­de­ces­sor, the new pre­si­dent, Samia Sulu­hu Hassan, sup­ports the vac­ci­na­ti­on cam­paign pro­mo­ted by the WHO, among others, and pushed it for­ward. She was also the first to be vac­ci­na­ted against Covid-19 on 28 July 2021 as a „role model“ for her com­pa­tri­ots. Howe­ver, the­re were also voices that doub­ted that the Pre­si­dent had been injec­ted with more than just a placebo.

Tan­z­a­nia Part 3: Mama Samia and the World Eco­no­mic Forum

To what ext­ent „Mama Samia“, Tanzania’s new pre­si­dent, sup­ports the „Gre­at Reset“ or not is not clear from the available sources.

Tan­z­a­nia Part 2: Did Mag­ufu­li want to lea­ve WHO?

Accor­ding to a Tan­z­a­ni­an insi­der known to the edi­to­ri­al team, Magafu­li had plans to lea­ve the WHO as well as a num­ber of other inter­na­tio­nal orga­ni­sa­ti­ons.

Tan­z­a­nia Part 1: A „bull­do­zer“ with few sym­pa­thies in the West

Of cour­se, such a rest­ric­tion of press free­dom is just as unde­mo­cra­tic as the exten­si­ve de fac­to exclu­si­on of cri­tics of the Coro­na mea­su­re from public dis­cour­se in the Fede­ral Repu­blic of Ger­ma­ny. Whe­re was the out­cry from Ger­man media repre­sen­ta­ti­ves the­re when US Pre­si­dent Donald Trump’s Twit­ter chan­nel was blo­cked?
