Intro
Mr. Amri Obaidi seems to have been a black man who was born in Tanzania and converted to Ahmadiyya at a young age (you can read about the history of Ahmadiyya in Tanzania herein). He seems to have been born in 1924, in the early 1950’s he went to Jamia-Rabwah and allegedly qualified as a Qadiani-Ahmadi murrabi. His name is also spelled as Sheikh K. A. Amir Abedi. He was the first ever native East African mayor of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. In 1960, he served as a Minister of Justice and as Minister of Education and Culture, as well as led the Tanganyikan delegation to the Eighteenth Session of the United Nations General Assembly. He was a native Swahili speaker (See State Ideology and Language in Tanzania By Jan Blommaert p.56-57) and The Anglo-African Commonwealth: Political Friction and Cultural Fusion By Ali A. Mazrui p.127).

He died in 1964 at the young age of 40 as a result of food poisoning (see “Tanzania: Party Transformation and Economic Development”) while he was in Egypt.
