I am very proud of what sc state university have done to invite Abeid Karume to visit state of south carolina. I moved to SC from Tanzania and went to school here. I am working on my PhD program right now. I would like to shake hand with President Karume because SC we dont have chance to meet foreign leaders.

I am assuming your "PhD" is not in English.

What a choice for a speaker. He can no doubt enlighten the graduating class about life in Zanzibar.

He’s the head of a “ Revolutionary Government” there. And all commercial businesses were nationalized a long time ago. The country has been a battle ground between Africans and Arabs (Sunni Muslim). Following the last presidential election, there were protests in the streets and 14 protestors where machine gunned down by the police. He’s no fan of democracy and will no doubt enlighten his listeners to the joys of socialism.

The average life expectancy is 50. Same as in Haiti.. In a country that makes it’s revenue from agriculture, but has only about 4% land space that can be farmed his fellow countrymen have it rough.. He is probably on his way to Washington D.C. to see that the annual $1.5 Billion Dollars in foreign aid received from the U.S. is coming.

There are enough problems is his country that he should be run out on a rail. Now he is being treated as if he is someone special. A 99% Islamic area, very high rate of AIDS and a transhipment area for drugs to the US and other areas.

The faculties and staffs at South Carolina State University has demonstrate committed to reduce shortages of mathematics and sciences textbooks in the country of Zanzibar. I would like to take this opportunity to thanks the faculties and staffs at SCU for inviting the President of Zanzibar to visit our State of South Carolina.
I have been lived in the State of South Carolina since 1993. I am first generation immigrant from the country of Tanzania. However, I am an American. Thus, I would like to say this for those who think English is the only language people need to know on this hemisphere I will prove you wrong. Americans, you need to wake up and learn from India, China, and Africa. You people can’t speak and write in Swahili and you are trying to correct me. I will conclude by saying this, you need to think outside the box……
