President Samia Suluhu arrives in Kenya for two-day state visit

President Samia Suluhu

Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu has arrived in Nairobi, Kenya for a two-day state visit.

This is her first visit to the country since she was sworn in after the death of John Pombe Magufuli in March.

This is the first time a Tanzanian President is making a state visit to Kenya since October 2016.

It is her second visit outside Tanzania. She visited Uganda last month when the two countries signed an oil pipeline deal worth $3.5 billion with oil giants Total and CNOOC.

She is expected to address a joint sitting of the National Assembly and the Senate on Wednesday.

Suluhu was received by her host, President Uhuru Kenyatta at the State House, Nairobi.

At State House in Kenya, she will receive a 21-gun salute, a privilege and tradition given to visiting heads of state.

Her trip comes at a time when both countries are seeking to renew ties and resolve their perennial tiffs on cross-border trade, including non-tarrif barriers.

An immediate concern will be cooperation around Covid-19 management.
