Why did Che Guevara go to Tanzania secretly?

Picha hii yenye maelezo, "Mondlane na Che Guevara, Dar es Salaam, 1965) imepatikana itsdar.net.

The Argentinean revolutionary and hero of the Cuban revolution, Ernesto “Che” Guevara, spent over four months in Tanzania between 1965 and 1966. He entered Tanzanian soil a total of three times, once publicly and twice in secret between February and November of 1965. Che was attracted to Tanzania because it was the headquarters of most liberation movements from southern Africa; it was one of the centers of revolutionary thought in the African continent at the time. After almost three months of travelling to 6 different African countries pitching a case for a revolution, it was in Tanzania that Che would find a government ready to support his plan and a place to launch his next revolution. Tanzania would eventually become the starting point for a Cuban operation that would see Che together with more than 130 Cubans cross Lake Tanganyika and spend the next seven months fighting in the Congo.

Che landed in Dar es Salaam on Thursday, February 11, 1965 from China. He had one mission: to rally support from the liberation movements to create a united army to fight against imperialist an neocolonial forces in the Congo. Che went to Tanzania with a mission. He wanted a revolution. If there was any place in Africa with a large number of revolutionaries from different countries close to

Aua kwa kukata shingo mfanyakazi Marekani

Huko kwenye jimbo la Oklahoma katika jiji la Oklahoma anaripotiwa mtu mmoja kuwa alimkata shingo mwanamke mmoja kwa kutumia kisu na kumjeruhi mwingine kabla ya yeye kupigwa risasi na maafisa wa polisi hapo siku ya Ijumaa.

Polisi wamesema kijana huyo, Alton Nolen (30), aliyekuwa mwajiriwa wa Vaughan Foods, alifanya kiendo hicho punde tu aliposindikizwa kutoka katika eneo la kazi baada ya kufutwa kazi.

Polisi wametaja sababu za kiimani kwamba kijana huyo alikuwa akijaribu kuwataka wafanyakazi wenzie wabadili dini. PKumbukumbu zinaonesha kijana huyo alitoka jela mwezi Aprili mwaka huu akiwa na historia ya kukutwa na bangi, kutoroka kifungoni, kushambulia na kujeruhi askari na kukutwa na cocaine kwa nia ya kuifanyia biashara.

Baadhi ya vituo vya runinga vya Marekani vikizungumzia tukio hilo vimekuwa vikijadili ikiwa ujumbe wa video wa kukatwa vichwa kwa baadhi ya wanahabari na raia wa Magharibi kulikofanywa na wanachama wa kundi lililotangaza kuunda dola la Kiislam (IS) huko Irak na Syria, kunachochea vitendo hivi kwingineko duniani.
