    projects for poverty reduction, to emphasize on curbing multinational financial illicit and drug smugglers in Tanzania. Baker, et al. (2014) indicates Tanzania is one of the leading African countries in the illicit flows through trade misinvoicing. This again is a call for the meaningful action to address the problem as part of curbing poverty. Nyerere bitterly, warned and criticized the reliance on foreign aid the noting “…it is stupid for us to imagine [we can free ourselves from] poverty through foreign financial assistance resources.” His argument realistically, grounded on the fact that the independence denotes safe-reliance (Nyerere, 1967, p. 239). Perhaps, Nyerere knew the implication of aid early after liberation insisting free education as one of the drivers for social and economic development. With the same ideas, Liam Kane made an argument that “society is a fundamentally unjust and education should have an open, political commitment to work with the victims of social, political, and economic injustice in their struggle to bring about progressive social change” (Kane, 2006. p. 201).

    In The Tragedy of Julius Caesar written by William Shakespeare, there are two speeches regarding the same topic that are presented to the public. Both Mark Antony and Brutus delivered speeches after the death of Julius Caesar, consisting of their opinion and explanation of what has happened and why, for the needs of the Roman people.

    Throughout history there have been many great leaders that did great things for there people. Not many of these great leaders are well represented in today’s society.

    The Death of Caesar was a turning point in Roman history. It started a civil war that resulted in the eventual creation of the Roman Empire, and the end of the Roman Republic. Three accounts that portray the murder of Caesar: Suetonius’ Life of Caesar, Plutarch’s Life of Caesar, and Nicolaus’ Life of Augustus all tell separate stories, even though they were all derived from the same event. All of the stories are technically the same story; Caesar was warned by omen, dreams, and soothsayers…
