Arusha Clock Tower

lunch in Arusha, Oct 2003

David said that the Clock Tower was built by a wealthy Greek man just after WWII.

Recalled his name as Galanos, the same man that contributed the building in Dar es Salaam.

He had a relation who was shot in the Safari House Hotel (newly built by another Greek) after a dispute thought to be involving money.

Arusha Clock Tower

Think that the Arusha Clock Tower was built by a man called Galanos.

She also mentioned a man called Anatogolou, who donated the Parliament Hall in Dar es Salaam.

One of them had a daughter called Alma, and MK went to school with her. The father (either Galanos or Anatogolou) also owned sisal estates in Morogoro, Lindi and possibly Dar. Maybe also lived in the Usumbara Mountains.
