BBC News Reports:


Tanzanians pack George Bush bar

Mr Mgina (l) shares his first name with the former US leader
Tanzanian beer drinkers are flocking to the George Bush Social Club, south-east of Dar es Salaam.

Owner George Charles Mgina was nicknamed George Bush by his friends because of his strong support for the first Gulf War in 1991.

Inside, patrons drink beer, play pool and eat roast meat.

The BBC's Vicky Ntetema says that most Tanzanians oppose Mr Bush's son, the current US president, and his war in Iraq but business remains strong.

With the new President Bush, Mr Mgina changed the name of his company to George W Bush Investments Ltd and says he is also planning to venture into new areas, so there could soon be a George W Bush farm or mine.
