Translator sends mourners into laughter at late Tanzanian president's funeral after misinterpreting speech
Those who grew up in the area knew Alhaji Agyaa to be very rich, popular and the only millionaire who could acquire this Mercedes in the area.
See the post below:
Alhaji Agyaa is said to have hidden the car from the ruler at the time, Ft Lt Jerry John Rawlings who had an eagle eye on anyone who was excessively rich to ensure that they were not using the state's money.
A special man-made metal garage was built by Alhaji Agyaa to hide the car and it has been kept untouched since that time until now.
The car was reportedly popularly called Alhaji Agyaa Benz at the time as it used to be a moving monument that townfolk always talked about in those days.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that a translator at the state funeral service of late Tanzanian president, John Pombe Magufuli, which took place on Monday, March 22, had a moment to remember.
The light moment occurred during South Africa's President Cyril Ramaphosa's speech at the Jamhuri Stadium in Dodoma. His words were wrongly translated, leading to laughter from those who understood the difference.
At some point in his tribute to the late, Ramaphosa noted Magufuli was not a great traveller and did not like flying as much and preferred staying at home.
