Tanzania’s leader Samia Suluhu has arrived in Kenya for a two-day state visit.
The Air Tanzania plane carrying Suluhu touched down at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport some minutes to 10 am on Tuesday morning.
The Tanzanian’s President was received at the JKIA by the Kenyan Foreign CS Raychelle Omamo and Sports CS Ambassador Amina Mohamed among other leaders. Also in her delegation was Kenyan Ambassador to Tanzania Dan Kazungu among other delegations.
Her Kenyan visit is her second outside Tanzania since she took over the office in March this year, following the demise of her predecessor the late John Magufuli.
She will be in the country for two days and is expected to address a joint sitting of the National Assembly and the Senate on Wednesday.
Suluhu will be received by her host, President Uhuru Kenyatta at the State House, Nairobi.
The government plans to give Tanzanian President Suluhu Hassan elaborate State honors, including an opportunity to address a joint sitting of Parliament and a 21-gun salute.
House Speakers Justin Muturi (National Assembly) and Kenneth Lusaka (Senate) on Monday gazetted the joint special sitting.
“Notice is given to all members of the National Assembly that the Speaker of the National Assembly, in consultation with the Speaker of the Senate, has arranged for a joint sitting of Parliament to be held on Wednesday, May 2021 at 2.30 pm at the National Assembly Chamber, Main Parliament Buildings,” the notice by Muturi reads.
She will thereafter proceed for bilateral meetings and consultations as she kicks off the two-day visit
