President Obama is coming to TZ! So far, we do not know his exact itinerary (so I can't genuinely confirm any dinner plans with him as yet), but we can guess Dar will be one confirmed stop and probably Arusha as well. Hopefully, he will make an appearance in Kilimanjaro at some point, but Moshi is often overlooked. I don't believe either Bill Clinton nor George W stopped here on their presidential visits....would be amazeballs if this POTUS could roll through and sort out some of the legalities of my expat status....
Check out below the "Statement by the Press Secretary on the President's Travel to Africa" as issued by the Embassy:
The President will meet with a wide array of leaders from government, business, and civil society, including youth, to discuss our strategic partnerships on bilateral and global issues. The trip will underscore the President's commitment to broadening and deepening cooperation between the United States and the people of sub-Saharan Africa to advance regional and global peace and prosperity.
I also peeped this pic of the Ambassador, Alfonso E. Lenhardt, and find him to be a silver fox!! Maybe a return trip to Dar is in order? To introduce The Toa Nafasi Project, of course!
(More on the assessment and our future plans next week....)
