Some Books  I read in 2013
These are some of the books I read last year. Reduced by almost half from 2012 due to the fact that 2013 was a challenging year for me. I have started a column on Raia Tanzania newspaper every Monday that analyses some of the books I have read. I encourage people to read it and even write on it as guest columnists. So I have done three; One man’s view of the world of Lee, Chimamanda’s Americanah and Nyoka’s A Hill of Fools. Below is my 2013 list.
I start 2014 with In It Together: The inside story of the Coalition Government, M D’ancona and Ghana must go, Taiye Selasi.
Arrow of God, Chinua Achebe
Messi: The inside story of the boy who became a legend,Luca Caioli
Fragile Empire: How Russia fell in and out of love with Vladimir Putin, Ben Judah
The Flame of Freedom, Raila Odinga
The New Digital Age, Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen
Conversations with Lee Kuan Yew, Tom Plate
Conversations with Mahathir Mohammad
Ataturk: The rebirth of a nation, Patrick Kinkross
One Man’s View of the World, Lee Kuan Yew
Angela Merkel: A Chancellorship forged in crisis, Crawford Czuczka
Bolivar, Marie Arana
A Hill of Fools, Mtutuzeli Nyoka
Curbing Corruption in Asian Countries: An Impossible Dream, Jon S. T. Quah
Americanah, Chimamanda Adichie

  9. What a great politician Allah has made through Chadema(the youth’s choice)i wish to read the book”the fools hill”,i will make efforts to find it.Anyway i know this might not sound very good here but ok!let me give out my utmost feelings.Chadema is a great part and we all know that,a lot has been said and more will be said,you have spent most of your time and resouces building the part,this is well appreciated and encouraged the rage going on in the part is never health even if this is the so said normal happenings in grown ups and well matured Institutions like Chadema.I believe you can still make it up with the part and give the Tanzanians the great pleasure and assurance to the part since they have giant positive image of the chadema and you Zitto.You have spent much time with the leadership team building chadema why come to an end like this?you all belong to chadema for the good of Tanzanians, why your mission should be shaken this much?Make peace and not grudges.
