This mission among many things ,take s care of the different proffessional needs of different Tanzania delegations that are frequently visiting the UN or the AU or even passing through the country.
Did you also know that the Tanzania mission in addis ababa has a special hall that has a secret history of the liberation of Africa. Apparently , its this Hall that was used by mwalimu nyerere, nkurumah , Jomo kinyatta , His Majesty Haille silas and other liberators to plan the liberation and and independence of africa during those difficult years?. This Hall is now used and run by the Tanzania community(UDUGU) in Ethiopia as a meeting point and it holds a Bar and an eatery providind East Africa food like nyama choma and Ugali.It also has a dancing Hall.During my visit here i found lots of expatriates working with the UN and AU having a nice time. The Hall offers a pool table and table tennis. I would strongly recommend any visitor to Addis Ababa to visit this facility as it is home away from home
