WaTanzania 200 Wafungwa Hong Kong!



Below is one drug mule story, the story of mules from Tanzania entering Hong Kong. Because of its location on the East coast of Africa, Tanzania is the favorite launching place for drug lords to mission their mules. The drugs they carry are mainly from Pakistan and Afghanistan....taken by boat to Tanzania ....meeting small boats along Tanzania's long coastline

In Hong Kong there are currently about 200 inmates from Tanzania. About 130 convicted and about 70 on remand (...unofficial figures..). In May-June 2013, some 50 Tanzanians were arrested in Hong Kong and China

Those convicted serve a minimum time of about 9 years if they plead guilty. They serve 21 years if they don't plead guilty (but drugs are found in their possession)

The story of these Tanzanian mules entering Hong Kong is typical of what happens around the world. Hopefully this story will be seen by many people in Africa, especially in Tanzania, and will discourage others from becoming mules. If this article stops even one person from being a mule, it is worthwhile

Here is the story, written in Swahili by a Hong Kong Tanzanian inmate, translated into English by another inmate. The story names and shames some very important people in Tanzania, including:

Iddi Azan, a leading politician who has his own blogspot, a Facebook account, and many other items when you put "iddi azzan" into

Sasa umemtaja Iddi Azan, tena ukamwita mweshimiwa. Ukawataja na "wazungu wengine". Baadaye unasema kuna vigogo wengine wa serikali ambao kuwataja itakuwa aibu. Ebo!!!? aibu maana yake nini.
Wazungu wanasema "put up or shut up".

Kwani unaogopa nini kuwataja?
