"Maintain with a three 30 or 300. I'm getting confused now. I think I may have missed. It's a three 30. Okay, three three three 200. Okay. Versus the 7 8 7. Gotcha. Okay, so they were the separation was 600 feet vertical, 2.4 nautical miles horizontal, the controller intervened. Instructed the three 30 to maintain 9 and the 7 87 two expedite climbing to ten. The ATS-V reported that Deena 7 said is being revised, as the procedure can not ensure separation, due to the criteria set for turning. They will see in their final work of interesting one. Yeah. Yeah. You can see that on the map that the PA aircraft past dinner and then decorate a long straight leg before he turned round, and continued on his climb, whereas the a three 30, hit dinner and turned straight away. So he's effectively cut the corner. So you go, well, you know, surely he's in error. Well, no, because there are two requirements. After position, Dina, which you can see on the standard instrument departure, you're not only going to pass the point before you turn, but you must reach 6000 feet. Now, because BA one 6 was heavy, he passed in, but he was climbing slower, so it took him some time to get the 6000 feet when he did. He went around the corner, but because the other aircraft had turned much sooner. And so they caught up in the subsequent merging of their tracks. So, you know, it is a full in the sound that instrument departure. I'm surprised no one ever picked it up before, but now they have. They didn't come that close to a half miles. Is more academic. A loss of separation than it is a real concern, so yes, they've come closer than they should, but I think anyone should be confused. Particularly when you got radar there and the radar system, a letter of the controller to the proximity of the aircraft and allowed him to take avoiding action with the crews. So when they say loss of separation, that's all it was. It was no there was no real risk of right. Yeah, you're right, that this wasn't this flaw in the departure procedure hadn't been noticed before. This occurred is kind of interesting. They didn't, I guess, foresee that particular circumstance occurring. But they're fixing it. Yeah, thank you. And they're going to take a look at all of the procedures. That money I feel similar in Australia, but big ones international ones were. But there will be quite a bit of work done now to make sure that nothing similar is existing anywhere else. Yeah. Well, Jim Fulton has a message here for you, Nick in the live audience. QF driver must also be an Audi driver, damn roadhogs. Cutting people off. Crazy. All right. Continuing on. Also from the aviation arrow. Preliminary report, we've talked about this shortly after it occurred November 6th, 2022. An overrun runway or 1842 overran the runway on landing and ended up in Lake Victoria. It almost sounds to me like on this report that they didn't actually even hit the runway, but I could be wrong about that. Let's read a little bit of this thing, a precision error service. ATR 42 was flying from Dar es Salaam to Bogotá Tanzania with 39 passengers and four crew. They were on approach to runway three one. The aircraft impacted the water short of buka buzz runway three one and came to a stop submerged in Lake Victoria. Yeah, I don't think they ever actually made it to the runway. It was very misleading. Headlines did not run at all. I think maybe at the time that the first occurred is what they thought had happened, but then later evidence showed that they actually never made it to the airport. So

"Shattered the entire leading edge off of it. So the airplane is just yard sale. And and upside down. Draining out of it. Yeah. The fact that he is minimally injured is amazing. If I had been that whilst lit cigarette. And then dropped it in that picture. Yeah, gubby in our live audience says, had a moth fly up my nose at 100 feet above the runway at cap bastion, landing on envy. Night vision goggles. Took a lot of sneezing to get it out. Oh my gosh. Wow. Comfortable. I mean, what airplane allows moths to come in and fly up your nose. I'm thinking maybe the C 17, I don't know, was that what kind of airplane was that? Gabby? I'm guessing. We know that he flies that airplane, but I'm sure he's flown others. Before they figure it out, his flying skills and then they moved him off to something else. Sent him to Canada. Speaking of broken airplanes, what about this next one? Oh, well, thank you, Liz. That's a great transition. Too bad, I'm the only one that heard it. Okay. What did you say again? Speaking of making a broken airplane. Speaking of broken airplanes, let's continue with the next item. And this was from the aviation Herald, our favorite news source for aviation incidents and accidents. A lot of sibilants there have. Got it. Dry up my mouth a little bit here. Okay. Let's see. A precision air service, ATR 42, 500 registration 5 hotel papa whisky foxtrot, performing flight four 94 from Dar es Salaam, to book a book called. Tanzania, with 39 passengers and four crew was on approach to bukha bas, runway one three. At about 8 53 local time, so morning flight. The aircraft overshot, runway one three came to a stop submerged in Lake Victoria, about 100 meters or 330 feet past the end of the runway, with the nose of the aircraft pointing away from the shore. The aircraft is about 80% submerged, 26 passengers were taken to the hospital. 24 passengers and 19 fatalities. Amongst them the captain and the first officer of the flight were confirmed. Local police reported the aircraft crashed into the waters of Lake Victoria. We already talked about that because of bad weather. In the afternoon, Tanzania's prime minister visiting the accident site reported that a total of 19 people had died. It's unclear whether there were two rescuers, survivors succumbed in hospital or whether it was discrepancy with the number of people on board. Let's see, survivors reported that the aircraft had been approaching a book about am I saying that right? And heavy rain, the approach was turbulent, the crew aboard the approach climb back, then announced they would try another approach. And at that failed, again, they would need to return to Dar es Salaam. The aircraft was on final approach again when they suddenly found themselves in the water. Okay. We're on final approach, and then we just suddenly found ourselves in the water. That's an interesting sentence. The cabin filled rapidly with water, a flight attendant opened the emergency exit in the back, where they were able to get out of the aircraft, and after some time were picked up by Fisher boats. According to recent charts by Tanzania's CAA, there are no instrument approaches published for this airport. There are also no ground based navigation aids. At the eardrum, the next and DB and VOR

"Durban in South Africa, which is the port that the mining companies rely on more than any other in the region to export their copper, the port of bourbon was hit by floods not seen in decades. The floods not only killed more than 400 people, but they caused severe damage to the port, the damage that these floods caused has only made matters worse. When I visited the port earlier this year it was still recovering from the floods. They washed away roads and damaged warehouses, it's very difficult to explain how bad the damage was. So if these drivers are waiting as long as two weeks, just to get out of Congo and into Zambia. And then they have to go on this very dangerous and long trek down to port. How long does it on average take to get a load of copper from the mine to the port? From the companies that I spoke to this year, they considered about a month a fairly average time. Matt is the world's demand increases for this copper. It seems like this is not a process that can go on forever. They're going to have to do something about this to make it more efficient. Is there anything actually being done to ease the supply line from the mine to the port so that it is not this just like a Mad Max like story that you've described here? This is the $1 billion question. So far, what companies have been doing to try to solve the problem of congestion is to throw more trucks at it. Which of course only makes more congestion. Ultimately, the most sustainable solution is to improve rail connectivity. That's what a lot of the mining companies have been saying. They need to be able to move more of the logistics onto rail. But building rail is expensive and it takes a long time, is there actually plans to do that now? I mean, the Congolese government a few months ago unveiled an investment plan of about $58 billion to upgrade their countries infrastructure. A lot of that is required for both road and rail. The zamyn government already has a railway line connecting the copper belt to the port of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, but that's fallen into complete disrepair. So that's going to take a lot of investment to get into upper end and running again. There is also a railway connectivity from the Zambian copper built to the port of durban. But once again, that's going to need a lot of investment. It's not that there will be one solution, but probably a number of different solutions, which were required investment from both the governments involved, as well as private companies to make sure that there is a sustainable way to get the copper out of this resource that the world desperately needs over the next couple of decades to the places that need it. Matt hill, thanks for coming on the show. Thank you very much for having me. I've really enjoyed talking about this.

"With pop music that you want to listen to with the wider world, you might end up preferring English or some kind of English to whatever that tiny language is that your parents speak, especially if your father speaks one thing and your mother speaks another. So languages die and they die a lot more now than they used to because let's say that you're in Tanzania, you're from a small village you speak a language nobody's ever heard of. You marry somebody from another small village who speaks another language. Nobody's ever heard of. You moved to Dar es Salaam. You're in the city. The language that you two communicate in is Swahili, which is one of the big dude African languages that happens to have wound up in the shop window. That's what you speak to each other. When you have kids, what are you going to speak to the kids? The kids, you're going to speak to when Swahili because that's what you speak to speak in with each other. And if you were going to use those two tiny languages in the home and you might, really, how much is it going to happen when only one of you speaks that language? And is your child really going to embrace that language when they're going to grow up in the city where Swahili is the language that's everywhere and is the language that they use in school. And then of course, on top of Swahili, English is all over the place. So what that means is that the kids aren't going to speak those tiny African language. Now suppose it gets to the point that a great many young people from those two villages are going to Dar es Salaam. And there are only a few people left behind. And even there, people are beginning to embrace Swahili instead of the local languages because they associate the village with being backwards or there's some environmental problem and nobody wants to be in the village anyway. That's happening to languages all over the world.

"Dedicated to rally, where we put all of our content there, and occasionally we crop up here as well in the auto sport channel. When there's a big thing to talk about, which there is today because we've sent our man Tom Howard to rally safari. It's going to be a wonderful event in Kenny around 6 of this season. The world rally championship sees a return to an event that was a regular from 1972 to 2002 back after a 19 year hiatus, though, and Tom welcome along to the podcast. If you can just tell us, you know, about your journey. Oh, we keep hearing about his travel chaos in the newspapers. And what it's like where you are and where you're working from, just set the scene for us. Firstly, we've got to say thanks for this opportunity to be able to actually go to cover an event like this. So a lot of strings have been pulled for us to be here in the first place. So those people that know who they are should receive some thanks. But firstly, yeah, it's quite a long journey. I haven't had any sleep for 24 hours. So I'm very tired, but yeah, so flew out from Heathrow to Cairo last night. And then got a plane from Cairo through the night to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. And then got another flight from Tanzania this morning to Nairobi in Kenya. So I landed in Nairobi about 8 a.m. Kenya time. So then we had a two and a half hour road trip to naivasha, which is where the rally is based. So I've seen quite a lot today. Some things I quite confronting, some things quite spectacular. But yeah, it's been a bit of a long journey, but we are here and we are here to cover safari rally. I can see you're working from some sort of, it looks like an office. I mean, you're on your own in some sort of room. What facility do they build in the middle of the desert? So we've got like we're actually in a wildlife resort near Lake naivasha, which is a holiday destination, so we say it's quite a touristy area. Lots of hotels, lots of safari trips that you can go on. So we're in a sort of a wildlife resort where they've constructed all these temporary buildings to house all the rally cars this weekend. Near the town of nova. So it's a small town, not two hours north of Nairobi. But we're in quite a extensive metal structure with a tarpaulin roof and I've cheekily nabbed the FIA office, which is a little bit quieter than the media center to be able to do this podcast. So thanks to Vera, if I media delegate. So let me borrow her office. So we should be doing this in vision because your Wi-Fi connection is rock solid. It looks great. It's nice and crisp. It's better than when you have 5 minutes down the road is who sets all this up before we actually get into talking about the rally just for our listeners who might be interested in like the infrastructure of a rally event in safari rally Kenya. Is this the FIA that build all this or WRC and the promoters? And the safari rally organizers. I think a point that we should make here is this is a really serious event here. This is the biggest sport and event they have in Kenya. It's bigger than any football event or marathon or anything else. So everything is pulled into this to make it a spectacular as possible. And I have to say, being a hugely impressed with the Internet connectivity and the service park and everything so far. I've had my own personal driver, take me around everywhere today. So called Nelson, who should get a shout out. He was a very, very nice fella. So yeah, this is a serious event. The president will be here tomorrow of Kenya to oversee it. And this is a key part of his sort of manifesto, I guess. He was a very key part of his plan to bring this event back to Kenya as it has been a way for a while, obviously came back last year. But this was all a very key part of their sort of political strategy because this is not only a sporting event. It's all about tourism. And it has such a long tradition, as you said, at the beginning there. So it's a very, very special event for Kenya. Colin McRae's last win was there. It's been won by Richard burns and Tommy McKinnon. It did come back last year, but a kind of a legendary event for those people who might not be super into their rally. What's it like for speed and the location and the kind of surfaces they'll be on. So this will be one of the toughest on the calendar and this will be even tougher than it was last year as the crews have been saying today in the press conference. But these are high speed gravel stages, very open stages. So you're out in the middle of now where really lots of wildlife so they'll be giraffes, buffalo, elephants, zebra, so the crews will come across all sorts of different animals on there and their ways through the stages, obviously they try to clear the stages before they run through to make sure it's as clear as possible, but you can't really legislate for any zebras running around at the erratic. But yes, they're very fast, open stages. And the graph is quite soft and sandy in places. So the car is actually sort of dig in quite a lot. And if you're not careful, you can actually get stuck as calorie roughen Perry did last year. So you get stuck in this sort of quicksand like gravel, which is called fresh fish. Is the local term. And so it's quite an interesting combination of you can not go flat out on this event. There are too many areas where you need to be careful and preserve the cars. It's so rough in places. So it's really going to be a case of who measures it the best in terms of going flat out when they know they can, but also making sure the car is safe and healthy. So you reach the finish. It's going to be a real rally of attrition. Yeah, organizers know what they're doing in terms of clearing the way. But how do they clear the way of the animals and to try and keep them clear of the cars? In the old days, every crew used to have its own helicopter run ahead, but they don't have like these days. So there is a helicopter that goes through and a double zero car, which goes through to make sure the stage is clear before anyone comes in. But one of the tools that some of the teams run to sort of help scare wildlife away so they don't have any trouble with they run a special flashing light system on their headlights. So they're constantly flashing, which is hopefully which hopes to catch the eye of any animal and sort of warn them that there's a car coming. So there's some little clever little tools I have, but largely speaking, there isn't a great deal you can do, but the organizers do the best I can to make sure that there is no dramas. The last rally out was a warm one, but what are the conditions going to be like for the drivers and inside the cars, these new hybrid cars? Yes, so in Sardinia, they ran some tweaked modifications to the cars to combat this increased temperatures in the cockpit. Sardinia was incredibly hard, 40°. We're not looking like we're going to exceed 25 here in Kenya. So it's going to be a lot easier, shall we say on the cruise, not no less tough, but the temperatures won't be as high. There is also a threat of rain on every day. So which could also throw a spanner in the works. So yeah, the conditions are very mixed. It's going to be a real challenge for all of them. Kelly Robin perra arrives there with a 50 point lead over Thierry Neville. Tell us about the form going into this event. So yeah, Kelly obviously had a quiet event last time in Sardinia, which was going to be a tough one for him to open the road, always going to be very difficult for him there. With the way that the roads are, so dusty and tight and compact..

Just a little under 20 minutes. Okay. Let's just knock out one or two more and then call it a day. What do you think? Okay. This next one is from Jacob from Norway. He says, dear captain Jeff and the rest of the team, I just wanted to say, thank you so much for your fantastic show and the effort you have to make. Captain Jeff, I've been listening to your podcast since episode 65. I'm also a Catholic. I'm also Catholic and an airline pilot. Wow. That's cool. During the last 7 years of the show, just for you. Yeah, what the Catholic pilot? I think, well, pilot shows. It's not anymore. Obsolete. Thankfully. Let's see. During the last 7 years, I've been based in Norway with the same company. Hopefully I'll be able to meet all of you one day over a beer. Once again, thank you. Best regards Jacob jabmi. Something like that. Thank you, Jacob, from Norway, for sending in that feedback. That's awesome. 65 that you've been here for a very, very long time. We do appreciate that. Yeah. Congratulations. And thanks for your support. Yes. Oh, Gordy. Sent us this high captain Jeff. I've been listening to the podcasts in cruise. It makes the top of descent come sooner. I'm asleep. The time flies when you're sleeping. I'm actually a 7 37 FO out of Dubai. I've started a YouTube channel by the name Gordy in color. Oh, you misspelled color. It's an perfect well done gaudy. It's an automotive channel, but when on layovers, I produce some content from wherever I may be. I would really appreciate a shout out for the channel for any fellow fans of YouTube and wanting to see where I am going. Now we don't do that here. I'll wait, we just did. So far I've covered Belgrade Belgrade. Bucharest Dar es Salaam is that the way you'd say that. Salzburg and Tirana? Many more to come, including Budapest. This mid month. Of course I expect this may not be possible, but in such a fan of the show. I just wanted to write and tell you about it anyway. Well, it is possible. How much did you charge him? I only charged him only 20 pounds, Liz. She was asking how much I charged for. I didn't charge him anything. So he says, I love the show and always nice to hear from captain Nick and doctor Steph. Sorry, Miami wreck, sorry. It's not a fan, apparently. Or Nick C yeah, I guess they were just as well. Anyway, again, I did watch found his channel and watch some of his videos and he's definitely heavily into automotive stuff and he has a must make a lot of money as a first officer for this airline out of Dubai because he has a lot of cars. Lots of Mercedes and BMWs and most of them are like there are a few years old, aren't they? They may be classic cars in the future, but I suspect in somewhere like that. They probably change their cars quite frequently. And the old ones probably I would have thought not too expensive. You probably pick up a bargain out there. Yeah, true that. I think that I think he lives in at least at least in the videos that I was looking at. Somewhere in England and not in Dubai. I think he flies out. But I don't think he could be wrong. But I need to watch more of his videos apparently. I love the ones when he's down. Yeah. Seeing his getting his opinion of where he is, what he's doing, what it's like is good and particularly if there is something interesting, driving around. Great. So you should check it out. Gordy in color. And actually, on a couple of his videos, he has some what do you call it? Captions.

A push on Kampala to restore a boat to power is now becoming a very real possibility. Tanzania's president, Julius nirari, does not recognize the means regime. Nor do Uganda's north as Japan and Mary, the president of Sudan. The arari coza min, a traitor to the cause of African freedom and progress. Throughout East Africa, there are whispers that an attack is imminent. Of a two pronged invasion of Uganda, mounted from Tanzania to do away with a mean once and for all. Such a move would have international legitimacy. For amid the rise intentions, Amin has been making claims to a strip of land within Tanzania's borders, a region known as kagura. This is a direct threat to Tanzanian territorial integrity. Sure enough, the rumored invasion happens. On September 17th, 1972, a self styled People's Army of Ugandan exiles rumbles north across the border into Uganda. In advance, they've been busy. They've been organizing guerrilla cells within Uganda. There is faith that their invasion will set up a popular uprising. Momentum will build. Even those who don't see eye to eye with a boat at politically, have agreed to set differences aside and get on with the business of removing amine. One of the People's Army soldiers, a young rebel commander named Yuri Museveni, will go on to become president of Uganda himself in 1986. In a prelude to the invasion proper, People's Army activists with Tanzanian government help have hatched a plan. They are to hijack an East African airways airliner in Dar es Salaam. From there, they will pick up a contingent of guerrilla commandos at their base near Mount Kilimanjaro and proceed to Uganda, landing at entebbe airport. The men will spring out onto the runway as if from a Trojan horse. Entebbe airport is set on a Peninsula jutting into Lake Victoria, 20 miles south of Kampala. It's a key strategic objective. Securing it will act as a launch pad to taking the capital, easing the way for the troops jumping up from Tanzania on foot. Unfortunately for those involved, the operation is a calamity. The airplane is commandeered in Dar es Salaam according to plan, but The Rookie pilot charged with flying the mission succeeds only in crash landing it at the airstrip, where the guerrilla commanders are meant to board. Meanwhile, in the ground campaign, the disaster is compounded. Trucks run out of fuel, map reading skills proved to be poor. Rendezvous missed. The rebel army it turns out is woefully small. Just 1500 troops. The Tanzanian military support is only limited. Without a clear command structure and poor logistical support. The invasion is soon aborted. Amine, it turns out, had even been tipped off as to its plans. After pushing back the invaders, the Ugandan air force goes on to bomb some installations in Tanzania itself. The organization of African unity condemns Tanzania's involvement in the People's Army misadventure. This gives extra credibility to really a mean. He suddenly the good guy. Amin may have burned his bridges with the British and the Israelis, but his new pals rushed to supply reinforcements. There's this a convent of troops from Libya courtesy of colonel Gaddafi. Their immersion is acting on behalf of the Palestine liberation organization. Who even whip around to buy Uganda a new MiG fighter jet. In his deal with Gaddafi, in return for Libyan financial aid, I mean, promises to convert Uganda to Islam, or at least 70% of the population. He nails his colors firmly to the mast. Let's say month September 1972. The world recoils at the Munich Olympic massacre. With its murder of Israeli athletes by Palestinian gunmen. A telegram arrives on the desk of Kurt waldheim, the secretary general of the United Nations. Hitler and all German people knew that Israelis are not people who are working in the interest of the world. And that is why they burned over 6 million Jews alive with gas on the soil of Germany. It says the world should remember that the Palestinians with the assistance of Germany made the operation possible in the Olympic village. The telegram is.

"Might happen in his absence. We're in Singapore. It's January 25th, 1971. The Commonwealth summit is winding down. It's been a tense few days with fervent discussion, especially amongst African leaders. Ian Smith and his supporters have unilaterally declared independence for Rhodesia. Britain has begun supplying arms to the apartheid state of South Africa. For once, a majesty the Queen as head of the Commonwealth is not in attendance. It has been deemed prudent for her to keep away. At a swanky 5 star hotel Uganda goes about his business in his new role as world leader. Discussing policy, giving interviews, smiling, looking relaxed, and why not? Yesterday, he issued a secret order directly to the Uganda army barracks in Ginger. They are to arrest, general Idi Amin. Touching back down in Uganda, a boat he assumes he'll be accompanied by the news that Amin is now in jail. He will have avoided the sordid spectacle of having to get involved personally. But then a phone call. In his absence, general Amin, the staged a military coup. Roberte went off to Singapore in January 1971. We know that he wasn't particularly keen ongoing. He left instructions when he left, apparently, that his defense minister, Idi Amin none of that happened in the end, as we know EDM got the jump on the situation and pulled off the coup before the obote government could affect his arrest. A boat is ordered to arrest Amin is received at the Ginger barracks by a man called sergeant Musa. Like a mean, Musa is a northerner. And like I mean, of the kakwa tribe. Sergeant Musa feels he owes loyalty to a fellow tribesman over the president. So he simply hops into an armored car and drives straight over to the home of his commanding officer to inform him of the plot. General amines spent the day Doc shooting at Lake kyoga, 100 miles away. He returns home to find the excited sergeant waiting for him. Many of the soldiers at Ginger come from the same tribal region. The sergeant tells a mean that they have no intention of following a buddy's orders to arrest their beloved general. Indeed, they've been proactive. They have surrounded the armory and seized the capital's main radio station. They broadcast a message. I've decided to take over power from a button and a headache to our fellow soldier, make a general data. It's less of a coup, more of a confirmation. If there is resistance, a rearguard by a few a bottle loyalists, it doesn't last long. In the confusion radio Uganda forgoes its usual programming to play a pop song on a loop for the rest of the day. My boy lollipop by Jamaican singer really small. A few hours later, boy lollipop himself is riding into town at the wheel of his Jeep, tanks rolling in behind him, soldiers crammed on top, smiling, waving. The streets are lined with cheering crowds. The air is one of relief. The hated of bote has been deposed. Amin takes the radio Uganda himself, assuring with great humility that he is just a soldier. There to hold the fort until there are new, free and fair elections. At 30,000 feet over the Pacific, for Milton a boat, there is a stark realization. He can't go home. Amin's troops have also seized antibe airport. His plane is diverted to Tanzania. The 1971 coup is both preemptive and reactive. It's not planned over a long period of time. It is an attempt by his supporters to prevent the disaster that would occur if I mean was arrested and then subsequently presumably the other officers around him are seeing trouble for themselves in their future as well. You have this little constellation of west Nile in nubian officers who essentially seize power overnight and take over the army. It's worth noting because this is not a bunch of senior soldiers. This is our mean and essentially low ranking soldiers. He doesn't command the support of any of the other senior officers in the Uganda army. Some of whom come from different groups and some of them are southerners. And so when they see his power, this tiny little constellation of officers now find themselves in this incredibly precarious position. Well, they've got they've got to decide what's going to happen. I mean, it's going to be the figurehead. They managed to get some other senior and respected civilian administrators to form a cabinet with our means they kind of again improvising. They have this outward appearance to the world of successful military queue but actually what's happened is a tiny handful of officers have said they've taken over. And within the army itself, there are still thousands of soldiers who don't agree with it and aren't on board. So actually, that signals basically another year of conflict within the Ugandan army itself, which is where the sort of patterns of violence and repression really, really escalate and really kick off. Outside the parliament building, the decorations are still up. It's the tail end of the Christmas season. Someone waves a placard, Amin, our Christ. Idi Amin is Uganda's new savior. There is a general sigh of relief on the part of the public. Making all the right noises as leader Amin throws in some early treats. Freedom of religion, lower taxes, prosperity for all, or not alike. I remember, I remember that people cut down the a banana trees and decorated the military trucks and a soldier as we are friendly in those days. We used to have one radio station and one TV station and the TV was in black and white. On my village, the indigenous people may be two or three people had television. But because the other person who had TV had a daughter whom I had gone to boarding school with, I could go and see. So we saw paretti I saw in me. I saw all these soldiers. I saw the love. I saw the embrace, everything. He assumed sworn in at an outdoor ceremony. I will exercise the function of the head of government of the republic of Uganda, so help me God. He declares, with great solemnity. He seems true to his word. His first move is to release all political prisoners, including the head of the Democratic Party, benediction. The man falsely accused of an attempt on a boat his life. I mean, makes him chief justice. Then, a leading army officer, bigger opera lot, an old rival of amines is released. Alongside a sorted began in dignitaries. A mean dismantled the hated GSU, a bot is security service. He reassures his adoring public. Doctor Abbott will come back to Uganda as a citizen of Uganda, but not as a president of the republic of Uganda, he says the over exit a little. He claims that a raid on a boat his house is uncovered a cache of munitions, rocket launches, the works. From his exile in the Tanzanian city of Dar es Salaam, abuti retorts that all I mean will have turned up is 700 books and my underpants. But a bote is old news..

"The world's attention is on nairobi. Kenya and dar-es-salaam tanzania where the day before august seventh that they were actually talking about here august seventh a coordinated truck bomb explosions had rocked the us embassies in those two east african countries. Two hundred twenty four people died in the blast including twelve americans. More than four thousand. Five hundred. people were wounded fairly quickly. These bombings were linked to al qaeda and most notably osama bin laden al-qaeda and bin laden were certainly on the intelligence communities radar. But i think it's safe to say less on the public's radar and this a notable moment in the rise of al qaeda which of course culminated in many ways in the attacks on the world trade center on nine eleven three years later so here to discuss all that context and the nineteen ninety eight east.

We will maybe see if that ties into this conversation as we go as we go along here but congrats on on the new book so care on why these embassies in east africa targeted by al-qaeda at this time you know i think the significance of the east africa bombings at our manifold as you've described it but it really is the emergence of bin laden onto the scene onto the international scene in a way that the public noticed him. Not just as you said the intelligence community and they've been looking for a target for a while to understand how to make their their case. No not just against the united states but to to do it bin laden and tried to do with al qaeda which was to make it an international presence and to make it clear that it had international aims not just tied to the region itself and so there were efforts throughout a number of places including sudan to try to figure out where to ground al qaeda where to make their presence central and we can talk about the what happened after the bombings..

"Welcome to the traveler. I'm your host chris christensen. Let's talk about tanzania. i'd like to welcome the show. Jen current from globe and tribe dot com. Who's come to talk to us about western tanzania. Jen welcome to the show chris. Happy to be here so first off. What is your relationship to liam. Probably my first contact with pannonia was when i was at university of wisconsin. For my bachelor's degree actually studied african languages. Swahili was my first language. That i studied there so i'd always wanted to spend time in east africa. And so. I got to know tanzania even before i went through the language after getting my graduate degree in public health in new orleans. I had a chance to travel there and through my career in public health before travel agency. I spent about sixteen seventeen years working in various development projects all throughout africa but a lot in tanzania and kenya as well as southern africa. So i've had a luxury. At least africa for many many analysts going on two decades now excellent and therefore we should also say two things. One is the globe dot com. That i mentioned is a site where you can book tours and two. I should wish you caribou or welcome. Thank you so much. Nina semakieh swahili kadogo. I said i speak a little swahili or something. I i speak a little. You actually said it in like it's usually nina sama He's healy but you said no out. Which is like the short version which is almost a little bit like with the cool kids. Say so you're ahead of the game. Excellent gardener and why. Should someone go to tanzania but particularly western tanzania. Tanzania is just a. I mean there's so many amazing things about hanania. The people are great culture. It's great not just the swahili coast culture watching up quantity. They call themselves in the people of the water. People have the beach. But just in general i think are really kind warn people i know everyone says that every place that got all the people were so great but gonna do a lotta places where the country is amazing and people were fine but they weren't super hospitable so i feel like that's what everyone says but i just yeah really warm. Welcome mean tanzania just has a breath of natural wonders. It also has a lot of history particularly on the coast. Zanzibar is has a lot of culture museum of our past hands around for a while. It has great omani culture. So there's just a lot in tanzania in a western tanzania. I often say like a lot of places that i go kind of places. I specialize in mainly because for work. I was going to paris for work. That was going to chad and it was going to pretty remote areas western tanzania. I would say one reason to go. There is because not everyone's going there so for me. That's kind of my dick. that's something. that's his appeal to me. And it's just a place where a thoughtful of but it just has amazing natural wonders that i think get lost in the big sarah. Getting beauregard. tarring era area. The nature of the wildlife is incredible. They're it's not full of other tourists and really and some of the places that i've been particularly qatabi national park which i can talk more about is just it feels wild like it feels like what it was like a century ago granted. You're staying in fancy tench which might not have been there years ago. Whatever but you do feel when you're out there it's vast wilderness and you're kind of to loan which is pretty incredible and it's just feel so wild to me. It was one of the places that i've been there. So few places. I think in the world where you can really feel like. Wow this is wild. And that. I think that's one of the reasons. I love it so much. Excellent and you mentioned going to other countries like chad and things like that. And i don't remember whether you've said already but you were in epidemiology so if jen was going place you probably didn't want to. Yes yes a places where we were like. Why would you go there like well. I had to go there. And i found i was determined in almost everything place. I want you to find what was incredible about it and i'm not necessarily known for being an optimist but that is something that i strive to do. Wherever i go is i will find incredible thing here so i would think. Epidemiology and optimism might be a poor combination thin. You end up saying things like it'll go away magically which not to get into politics but may not end well so yeah that's a whole that's another podcast holds. Everybody does that. We're not doing on this show. What kind of itinerary are you going to recommend i. I know that usually like the one or two week thing is ideal but i think i heard you mentioned another papa. Sometimes when you go floor away a week just gonna cut it. But i do think that especially for western sandia if you are going to add it onto a large right january you can do it in a week ten days. That just doesn't really count the days getting there. But what i did and i thought it was an incredible itinerary was spent. You could spend three to four days in taba national park which is southern western pennsylvania and then another three or four days depending on how you split your week in holly national park. There's a couple of charter flight companies Flights that go and they operate mondays and thursdays. Just because it's pretty remote. And it's not chock full of people you can go monday to tubby and then thursday. Go the hallway. And then fly back on monday to arusha which is where you would fly in and out of. You can't drive from doors. Probably about twenty hours if you're lucky and you're on good roads. The haven't seen a lot of rain or about fifteen from one but it's been a hike and clearly couldn't do that week and just to put a couple of those places on the map when you say dr you're saying dar-es-salaam and that's the way the cool kids sit and then Ones is up on lake. Victoria and so. That's sort of central northern tanzania and arusha is the central entry point four a lot of the safaris into those game parks. That you mentioned into both kilimanjaro talked about a recent episode as well as tearing giri a girl gore crater lake. Manara the sir getty right correct. You can fly in or out of jaro. Which is kilimanjaro. And it's about an hour drive to arusha with the domestic airport that yes you would fly out of to go to any number of parks and then yeah to get way over to where you're talking about. A flight is going to be a lot quicker than dry. Because you're all the way across the country and africa's a big place. Yes and the very long in probably strenuous drive. You're doing that but the flights are also it's not just a direct flight even qatabi you have. You have to at least even if you're going directly there without pigging dropping off any other passenger at any other spots you at least need to refuel once in a place called to laura so you stop too old airport action of a vip lounge couple chairs in it but it is a three hour flight with in there with a refueling. You're looking at maybe three and a half hour with different stops and stuff from a cool so you started us in qatabi. What are we going to see and copy retirement. National park is actually one of my favorite hidden. Gems is actually the third largest park in terms of sheer size in tanzania but it is the least visited. I've read statistics Around thousand visitors a year. But i've actually looked at tanaka. Which is the tanzanian parks. And i want to say. Most years is probably in the low. Hundreds be fair. When i was there which is in september so midseason for three of my four days. I was the only tourist in the park so had the entire park on myself. The other time there for the other day there was one other. She's actually another american girl who had driven there from russia and there were just two of us in the park. So is pretty incredible. We had the whole place to ourselves. And.

It's race for me to get to nakada beim allowing before my birthday birthdays tober seventh and it was tober. I now so as a long way to cover big traveled from zanzibar down to malawi. And now it's time for thames. Talk tenths tip. Number one is yes. You need the train from mashi dar-es-salaam and it's about four hundred thirty five kilometers so it takes ten to twelve hours and tickets are between seven and twenty dollars depending on which class you get accent closely per was an tip. Number two is the ferries from dar-es-salaam zanzibar. Were basically they leave from slama seven. Am nine thirty. Twelve in four pm and apparently not only takes two hours three and a half catamaran ferries and they have all sorts of different classes so the cheapest economy is three five dollars which is fine because you just want to be on the decorate. So guy would be enough in my opinion. You know me. I'm all about the budget or you know business. Which is forty dollars. Vip fifty and royal royal treatment is sixty dollars inside the ferry. It's air conditioned as well and there's kiosks food kiosks Drinks but if anything above business you get a free snack in a free drink. But i mean thirty five dollars to sixty for royal. Trust me drink in the circus hours. Twenty five dollars but you know whatever. Do what you wanna do. I would suggest getting your tickets at least a day before the lineup supreme big usually but you can also book them online. But you can't pay them online. You have shut three hours before your ferries leaving to pay for and is still a five dollar departure tax and then you pay normal no more than five dollars for taxi to get from the term of stone town at. I just walked smart. And they're looking for a taxi to posh our johnny on the east coast. It's probably around thirty dollars or you get local buses for two bucks and they leave from the darshana market to three. I guess i was tracking. You're going to need tanzanian visa. Which you comply online or on arrival of tichy dollars for tanzania three-day visa unless you're merican. It's one hundred bucks when i say. The best time to go is between june and october. Because that's the season and it's a little bit cooler or you can go December in february. I was there in. September and i would say daily. Budget depends on Me backpacker budget or luxury so your daily budget police anywhere between fifty to two hundred dollars links. It just depends on what he was saying. Hotels like supplement right. Now the tasmanian schilling is about two thousand three hundred to one dollars. I mean i had the mark. It's absolutely beautiful.

It is now day two hundred and fifty three finish the six day trek up kelly which was just amazing when my favorite experiences in my life to this day if you oughta listen to those three episodes than i recommend you insolent hard core yard. It was fun after my party night the night before. I really just wanted to sleep all day to be harder. Because i still pretty exhausted from kili. I mean i think. I covered like ninety kilometers in those six days. And you know you're going to lose the highest mountain in africa. Almost five thousand nine hundred meters in thirty thousand feet so you're not really easy but of course sleeping all day in africa is basically impossible. I was looking up at six in the morning. So i had some breakfast and then went to the train station because i really wanted to get going to dar-es-salaam so let's it got to the train station. There was just this massive q. And i was like you know what time to work a little town. Magic and go find the stationmaster I've used this tactic before. Network found the stationmaster and basically charmed him so he got a second class sleeper ticket in about two minutes waiting hours. So gotta do what you gotta do. Some time so yes. I was on the train for four o'clock that day but has time to come back to my little hotel packed up check. Oh this is nothing you can still do to this day is he can often leave your bag in storage. 'cause checkup usually you're not ten eleven. Am and you can use you do that for free. So that's what i did. And then i went to the y. 'cause i've met lots of people in marshy trying to book this bloody track as well as on the mountain. Lorrimore stink the why so whenever to the why. Because they had a pool is really fancy. Why actually yes just chilled out there for a few hours by the pool and then went winless meal at my favorite restaurant. That coffee house go pick up my bag. And that booed it to the trade sage. Got there with five minutes to spare and my carriage was much much nicer than my train. Journey from tacoma to arusha. I was a nightmare episode. I think about five episodes ago or so and there's only two of the ladies in my carriage the carriage asleep six day really lovely and they were a little bit later on. They were having dinner so they brought out all this food that they brought and shared some of their fried fish with me which is very sweet. And i just just sat by the window and this is really beautiful. It's it's quite green. And kind of watch kelly disappear in the background so semi final goodbye to that beautiful justic mountain and then just got to my little like about eight o'clock. There's still an hour or so later. Three other ladies came in which is fine you. They were pretty quiet. Although pretty impossible sleep because i actually felt like i was on a truck on a really really bad road full of potholes. The train was that jerky that i'm surprised. They fall out of my bloody bunk parks. So wait a bit a bit of a falls so as more like holding on for dear life didn't really getting much sleep to be sucked into dar-es-salaam about eight. Thirty in the morning was getting off the train. I met destroying girl called karen and we decided to very terminal together to get our tickets to go zanzibar. We've managed to get turned tickets which were time sixteen dollars.

Lot of casualty and loss of Soldiers but they've been continued to present. A one is not for the past twenty years and now they decided to sort of At least they're saying that they're going to withdraw. So what if. I don't think that providing have gone people with with What you call it. independence or that was Poking active but what what do you think what they re real objectives now not sorta short just because of the hour you get to the stage where we're here because we're here because we're here We cannot leave without achieving anything. We can achieve anything our go. We cannot leave but the comes a point where even us after twenty years of enormous cost in blood and treasure can no longer justify continuing with war. And i'm angry as you heard earlier because the basis on which we are leaving which is that. The taliban will be back in control before you can say.

They're looking for some bin laden in a kite. Am i right. Yeah although it was actually living right next door to america's close ally pakistan's main military base all along.

He's a car chase through the streets of Dar es Salaam to catch her seemed to be plucked from a movie. The scene was entirely unexpected Ted from a kind elderly bespectacled woman on paper. Yang certainly didn't fit the profile for an ivory tycoon but her or status as a gracious transplant looking to build.

UN strongly condemns witchcraft-linked killings of ten children in Tanzania
"This is of Lenin from UN news, we need to ensure a stronger protection environments and raise awareness over the killings of girls and boys in Tanzania believed to be linked to witchcraft rituals said the United Nations resident coordinator in the country on Wednesday strongly condemning the recent killing of ten children in the south of Giambi district of our dreamers said the UN was lending its full support to national and local authorities to investigate and prosecute the perpetrators. The bodies of the children were found abandoned with missing body parts, which are believed to be used in rituals practices, which are deep rooted among some communities Tanzania and nation of fifty seven million people where some persons with Albany have also been targeted for ritual, killing and dismemberment stove ouzo from the UN information office in the capital Dar-es-Salaam spoke with Mr. Rodriguez who started by highlighting the importance of protecting children on. The way to school where deeply concerned about the situation. It appears to be rather unusual situation in which about ten kids as far as we know three. From one family alone were killed over the last few weeks, and it would appear that their bodies were also dismembered either their limbs were missing, but it would also appear that their genitals and their lungs can been ripped out. We don't have all of the facts yet. But we've issued a statement that we've opened a dialogue with government to express concern over this to in cans any support that can be provided by the government to regional authorities in Joan bid to investigate and prosecute this. But also to ensure a stronger protection environment for kids coming to school because it would appear that going to school on going to the market accompanying their parents is where the children have gone missing. You have any idea as to why this. Feelings are occurring at this particular point in time. Not at all, frankly, appears rather on some people have speculated that is related to some form of witchcraft in quotes, it suppose ability we have had ritual killings in the past in the form of attacks against people living with Albany. Som. But those have greatly reduced almost to nothing in the last two or three years. So we're very surprised by by this occurrence, you'll looking clues Lee with government you mentioned before and dislike to find out from you. They mentioning any giving information as to who is behind this killings. Or is there any form of reports in updates that is coming up. No, we've heard informally that there's been an effort to track down what a call witch doctors. But in some cases, they could be people that are simply herb lists. And would not be involved in anything to do with bodily arm against others and other case. It could be something worse so reviews taking place of them. We hear that. They may have been a couple of people are prohibited. But this may be due to neighbor simply highlighting possible stranger that may have been in the community. And may be linked to the cases in another case, we hear of somebody that is referred to as a novel having been involved, but further than that, we don't have anymore and for this particular killings that are happening that have have have occurred in in jomie. What is the union doing specifically to provide support me to the families to the schools and to the community around that area? What we've done if that we've reached out to the ministry of home affairs, who's taken a lead on this issue given its role in internal administration of police services. But we are support comes in the org. Just this issue is the promotion of gender children's desks. Where we are very active in ensuring and this happens to also be the case job in ensuring that the police is more in tune with the challenges that the communities facing, for example in a situation such as this one and also very importantly, supporting the implementation of the plan of the national plan of action on violence against women and children where two months ago the government had dictated that village committees village security committee should be established. And in fact, last week, we were discussing this issue with government. So we hope that John they will be one of the early adopters of these new measures, and we will hopefully prevent any more incidents from happening clears Bhakta. Nielsen record for notorious I've been killings. What did the U N do in that particular time since we see this? Reduced reporting of these incidents now where we did a number of things, I think one swoop in a dialogue with government to see how we support the police the courts and very importantly communities in terms of awareness raising and we also carried out a lot of. Could call when media campaigns social media printed media on recognizing that just because people look different that doesn't mean that they should be treated at a discriminatory way. I think it made a difference. The government was very clear that he wanted to take action on this issue at the time. And they have continued they set up a task force to address the killing and maiming of people living with albinism, and it would appears by all accounts that has worked quite well. And what is your call with regards to these killings? What is your call to resign in community beyond this killings? But specifically on this killing sister recognize that everybody has a live has the right to life to live a life of dignity and safety. And of course, the children are particularly vulnerable in boys and girls in Tanzania are often like in many other countries, they often subjected to all sorts of discriminations girls are not allowed to school there. Early pregnancies. There's GM there's early child marriage. So we continue to work with government and communities to address some of these harmful traditional practices, which could include potentially this ritual killings. And we, of course, are continue to work with all nations to promote a rights based approach to development where human rights is integral to all of the work. We do.
