President Emmerson Mnangagwa Describes Death Of Tanzanian President
President Emmerson Mnangagwa has depicted the demise of the late Tanzanian President, John Pombe Magufuli as a great loss to the African continent.
President Mnangagwa was tending to grievers at a memorial service attended by 10 heads of State and government just as different delegates of African pioneers in the Tanzanian authority capital of Dodoma this Monday.
In his message, the President said Zimbabwe and Tanzania will proceed to extend and upgrade two-sided participation that existed between the two nations during the hour of President John Magufuli, who passed on of a heart infirmity a week ago.
“I want to assure you Your Excellency President Samia Suluhu Hassan and the people of the United Republic of Tanzania, of the continued support, solidarity and cooperation of Zimbabwe as you pursue the dream and vision you shared with the late departed President John Pombe Magufuli,” said President Mnangagwa.
He said President Magufuli was a man of the people who was also ‘action orientated’ and determined to improve the quality of lives for Tanzanians and all Africans alike.
President Mnangagwa said Zimbabwe will remember the late President for his part in advocating the evacuation of financial sanctions forced on Zimbabwe by Western nations.
Nine Heads of State and Government were in Tanzania yesterday to offer their final respects to Dr. Magufuli.
Those were Presidents Cyril Ramaphosa (South Africa), Dr. Mokgweetsi Masisi (Botswana), Felex Tshisekedi (Democratic Republic of Congo and African Union Chairperson), Filipe Nyusi (Mozambique), Uhuru Kenyatta (Kenya), Dr. Lazarus Chakwera (Malawi), and Edgar Lungu (Zambia), among others.
In the interim, President Mnangagwa is back home in the wake of going to the burial service of the late Tanzanian President in Tanzania.
He was met at the Robert Mugabe International Airport last evening by the Vice President, General (Rtd) Dr. Constantino Chiwenga, Government priests, and administration bosses.
