EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Red Dust of Singida (long) [20]

In this audio conversation, author Mo Tejani discusses the parallels between the actions of Juma, the demagogue bus conductor in “Red Dust of Singida,” and the actions of various dictators in Africa’s post colonial history. He also talks about the intensity of emotions he had while traveling on a bus through East Africa after 25 years of exile in anticipation of reaching Singida—his birth place in central Tanzania—and laments on the country’s socio-political history and the consequent suffering of the Tanzanians. Mo also elaborates on the actual events that occurred after arriving in Singida, which are not part of the story.

This audio conversation serves as a companion piece to the story “Red Dust of Singida” in Mo’s book Global Crossroads: Memoirs of a Travel Junkie (February 2012).

This is one of a number of conversations between award-winning author Mohezin (Mo) Tejani www.motejani.com” and digital nomad, educator, and edtech consultant Chris Smith shamblesguru.com hosted at globalcrossroads.podomatic.com
