Tanzania’s President Samia Suluhu Hassan will on Tuesday arrive in Kenya for a two-day State visit.
A statement from State House spokesperson Kanze Dena Mararo on Sunday said that President Uhuru Kenyatta will receive his Tanzania counterpart at State House, Nairobi.
“President Uhuru Kenyatta will receive his Tanzania counterpart at State House, Nairobi on the same day,” said Kanze Dena.
It will her first visit to Kenya after she was sworn in as Tanzania President after the death of John Pombe Magufuli.
Last month, President Kenyatta sent Sports CS Amina Mohamed to Tanzania for talks in efforts to amend relationships between the two countries.
During the meeting, the Head of State also invited President Samia to Nairobi.
Amina’s visit to Tanzania was also aimed at delivering Uhuru’s Kenyatta’s message to Suluhu amid a strained relationship between Tanzania and Kenya.
President Samia Suluhu reaffirmed her administration’s readiness and willingness to collaborate closely with Kenya in order to strengthen both countries’ trade ties and mutual interests.
“President Suluhu has committed to continue with what the late President John Magufuli started that of ensuring that both nations relate harmoniously,” Tanzania’s Chief Spokesperson Gerson Msigwa said in a statement.
