When John Oliver takes his secondary school class on a field trip to court in Mwanza, Tanzania, he is startled to hear the case Republic of Tanzania vs. Bill Kinsey announced. Kinsey, a fellow Peace Corps volunteer, is accused of murdering his wife, also a volunteer. The court considers an application for bail, but Bill is never released from prison prior to trial. President John Kennedy is one of the most publicly admired presidents of the past fifty years, and the Peace Corps is his most successful, surviving legacy. This book examines the formation of the Peace Corps, the path to independence for the young country of Tanzania, and how the two entities dealt with what had the potential to be a major international incident threatening the survival of the Peace Corps and severely damaging the reputation of Tanzania.

Keywords:   Tanzania, President John Kennedy, Peace Corps, bail in Tanzania
