A friend’s son, who lived in Tanzania for a year, gave me this lovely cloth which hangs in my office.  The centerpiece is a picture of Julius Kambrage Nyerere who is considered the father of modern Tanzania.  Mwalimu is the Swahili term for teacher which was President Nyerere’s first profession before he entered politics.
