According to reports, Alhaji Agyaa hid the car from the ruler at the time, Ft Lt Jerry John Rawlings, who kept a close watch on anyone who was overly wealthy to ensure they were not using state funds.
Alhaji Agyaa constructed a special man-made metal garage to conceal the motorcycle, which has remained unchanged since that time. The car was allegedly known as Alhaji Agyaa Benz at the time because it was a traveling monument that townfolk were still talking about. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng announced that an interpreter at the state funeral service for late Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli, which took place on March 22, had a special moment.
The light moment happened during a speech by South African President Cyril Ramaphosa at Dodoma’s Jamhuri Stadium. His remarks were mistranslated, causing those who knew the distinction to chuckle.
In his homage to Magufuli, Ramaphosa said that Magufuli was not a great traveller who disliked traveling and preferred to stay at home.
