I received a visitor from Mwanza, Kezia Aaron Nkanda, second from left, with her friends Jan and Tony Kemper from Wollongong, Australia. On one of those rare occasions, I, first on the left, stood in front of the camera.
The visitors later toured Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere's personal library which contains more than 8,000 books.

The library is an interesting stop for most visitors. This time it was Dick Nyongo, on the extreme right of the photo, below, who brought visitors to Butiama from
The next group of visitors were journalists including Mkinga Mkinga from the Citizen/Mwananchi, Orton Kiishweko from the Daily News, George Marato of ITV/Radio One (in dark suit in the picture, above), Mcharo Mrutu of Channel Ten, and Hamad Kitumbo of ITV.

I learnt a long time ago that in Zambia one of the greetings said in one of the local languages, Nyanja, is: Uli bwanji? Meaning: How are you? And so when I was told today's visitors were nuns from Zambia working at Kiabakari, near Butiama, I practiced hard and I think I managed to give a convincing greeting in Nyanja.
Occasionally, I meet the nuns at Musoma and I greet them with: Uli bwanji, sista? And it is always a huge surprise for them to hear that because they don't remember me from our meeting at Butiama.
