It would seem that Sinclair has also been lying about the political stability of Tanzania which has a large Muslim population. Reuters just reported a bomb attack on a Catholic church in Arusha which killed one person and injured 57 more. Perhaps a sign of things to come??
Tanzania is one of the poorer countries in the world and ranks relatively high on corruption indices. What SInclair likes to allude to is that makes it a great place to do business if you want to operate without the burden of regulation. The other allustion is that because of the level of poverty, TRX's potential contribution to economic development is both welcomed and worthwhile. Sinclair has always talked up his connections as a positive in terms of naviagting the bureacracy. But the reality is that TRX is at greater risk since the perception of favoritism would likely cause a successor government to revoke any permits and licenses. The other reailty is that other forms of economic development are much more valuable to the country. To name a few, eco-tourism, mining related to energy generation and energy transmission projects. The country is not going to divert resources from energy projects that serve the people to a private foreign company in an industry that will only provide a limited number of jobs.
