Profile Of this Website Owner

Mr. Makwaia wa Kuhenga, a well known Tanzanian Columnist, TV Host and Author was admitted to the Degree of Master of Arts in Journalism at the University of Wales In Cardiff In 1991.

In the picture right- Makwaia (seated right) is seen here interviewing Founding Father of the Tanzanian Nation. Dr. Julius Nyerere.

Makwaia counts over three decades in the Journalism profession, having served in a number of media organizations during the reign of Tanzanian Founder President, Dr. Julius Nyerere in the seventies and eighties. At that time in the heat of the liberation struggle in Southern Africa, he distinguished himself as a militant journalist against minority rule and apartheid.

His columns today are focused towards the genuine independence of the Third World countries – rejecting the globalization cliche as euphemism for imperialism.

His TV Talk Show: ‘Shall We Make it’/ ‘Je, Tutafika’? in English and Swahili editions broadcast weekly on Tanzanian CHANNEL TEN has captured the imagination of thousands of watchers across the board for its grasp of real issues on the local and global social- economic and political agenda.

In this picture (right) website owner, Makwaia (second right) is photographed in 1985 with the late Chairman Yasser Arafat, leader of the Palestinian people when he saw him past midnight in Amman, Jordan.

(i)The Evolution of the Tanzanian Media
