Finally I am in Morogoro. Further away from the hustle and bustle of the Tanzanian economic engine, Dar Es Salaam. Before I left Dar I attended the E-Learning Conference at Mlimani city. A very nice set-up for people interested in e-learning. Most of the discussions were centered around the theme “how e learning is going to shape education delivery in the Africa of tomorrow?.”
Participants represented the entire African continent and beyond. The place was packed and there was a lot of enthusiasm from the different stake-holders.
As usual, many of the African conference participants were absent. They took this paid opportunity to come to Dar Es salaam to indulge themselves and buying gifts and touring the city. I saw many of them spending at Mlimani City Mall and not attending the sessions. Another, donor’s money wasted.

Yeah man. These people had the opportunity to learn and engage themselves with some very knowledgeable people in the e learning environment, but choose to hang-out “magomeni kwa kangamoja” other than attending the all expenses paid seminar. We are in a very sorry state of mind.
oooh yeah, Morogoro is those very special places man. Not too hot and not too cold….just right. The views of the mountains are incredible!!!!
I miss Morogoro!:-(
There is just such a special feeling I get from viewing Uluguru mountains while approaching Morogoro from Dar-es-Salaam.
