Baraka Elias, the tallest Tanzanian, just visited Butiama

The tallest Tanzanian (until someone proves differently), Baraka Elias, paid a visit to the Butiama Cultural Tourism Enterprise (BCTE) on Friday 18 May 2012.

He works with mobile operator, Tigo, and the last time I communicated with him he was 7' 4" tall. He is 22 years old. The photo, below, of a secondary school student standing in the same spot provides a perspective of how tall he is.

The tallest living person is Sultan K√∂sen from Turkey. He stands at 2.51m or 8 feet 3 inches.
