President Uhuru Kenyatta, other presidents in Tanzania for Magufuli’s State funeral

-

President Uhuru Kenyatta arrived in Dodoma on Monday morning for the State funeral of his Tanzanian counterpart John Pombe Magufuli.

President Kenyatta, who chairs the East African Community, of which Tanzania is a member, praised the late leader for the work he did for that country.

“Africa and the world has lost a lustrous leader whose vision, passion and immense leadership propelled the nation of Tanzania forward and also steered the East African Community to closer integration. On the continental stage, the late President Magufuli was a champion of pan-Africanism and the passing on President Magufuli — I have lost a friend, a colleague and a visionary ally,” he said.
