Kaspar Tedo

Kaspar Henrick Tedo was one of Edward Saidi Tingatinga’s many cousins. He travelled to Tanga, where he met Omary Abdallah Amonde, and came to Dar es Salaam in 1972, the year when Tingatinga was shot by the police.
Tedo became one of the five students of Edward Saidi Tingatinga. During the police car chase, which killed Edward Saidi Tingatinga, Tedo was wounded but recovered. Tedo’s only son, Anthony Kaspar Tedo was about seven years old when his father died. He later became a Tingatinga painter and today works with the Slipway group in Dar es Salaam.
