Another year, another Uhuru celebration, same script, different venue. When the last Uhuru celebrations were held in Dar, President John Magufuli announced that from then on Dodoma, as the country’s political capital will host the events. While much of the rest of the country has rainfall and even floods in some parts, Dodoma is characteristically dry with temperature levels being unbearably high this time of the year coupled with dusty winds. This unfriendly weather is opposite of the character of the people here.
