Tanzania: Diamond Platnumz Fails to Make It to Mount Kilimanjaro Peak


He has conquered many in his area of expertise with many trophies in his cabinet to prove that, but not the mighty Kilimanjaro

Bongo Flava star Diamond Platnumz was yesterday among artistes who failed to make it to the peak of Africa’s highest mountain at an expedition themed the Kili Challenge.

Apart from diamond threw in the towel at the very first stop at Mandara Camp are actors Steve Mengele aka Steve Nyerere, and Jacob Steven.

This was despite early boasts that they would conquer the World’s tallest free standing mountain in record time but this was not to be.

The singer cited several reasons for his withdrawal including his tight performance schedule; he was supposed to perform in Arusha over the weekend.

The challenge which was organized by the minister of tourism Hamisi Kigwangala features some 130 climbers most of them celebrities with the aim of promoting local tourism. Paul Makonda keeps pace with President Magufuli’s aspirations

Latest reports show that Tanzania is now ranked 10 among African countries that have registered fastest growth in the tourism sector.

Tanzania despite its massive tourist resources trails Kenya, Ethiopia, South Africa, Mauritius, Seychelles, Namibia and Botswana in no particular order.

The report attributes the growth due to positive policy changes coupled with increased investment in the sector.
