  2. You have to admire bwana rais for surviving/ruling for so long with the instruments of power compared to his predecessors through a combination of luck and brutal force. His sixth term hotuba- speech was summed up by East African News-‘ The pan-African ideals and historical anecdotes that occupied a significant portion of his inauguration speech have little relevance to a population that is grappling with immediate existential challenges’.
