The wedding of Nkamba and Duttu For more photos (click here)
Report from Jesca Nkamba's wedding went really well yesterday and it was a busy day. As usual, time was often an issue as you know Tanzanian's can't stick to a plan but other than that I think Duttu and Nkamba enjoyed their day. They loved the videos and the various messages everyone sent, I think it is something they'll treasure during their married life as they seek to grow together in faith and in the service of their Saviour Christ Jesus.
We believe we should be exempt from paying VAT on top of this and are doing our very best to persuade the Revenue authorities that this is the case.  However other NGO’s working in the same field inform us that they have not been able to achieve VAT exempt status.  We are not very optomistic about succeeding in this endeavour.
