Dar Es Salaam: President Emmerson Mnangagwa is in Tanzania on a two day working visit and he was received by his counterpart Tanzania President John Magufuli yesterday morning at Julius Nyerere International Airport.

A statement released on Wednesday, June 27, 2018, by the host government says Mnangagwa will be visiting the country for the first time since he took power through a military takeover in November 2017.

“President Mnangagwa has so far visited Namibia, Zambia, Mozambique, Angola, Botswana, South Africa and the Democratic Republic of Congo,” reads part of the statement.

“He will visit the Kaole Arts College after holding talks with President John Magufuli before concluding his visit on Friday.”

During the colonial era, Kaole Arts College, which is located at Bagamoyo in Coast Region was a training centre of liberation fighters from the southern part of Africa with President Mnangagwa being one of the beneficiaries.

The visit may be a break from pressure for the 75-year-old who was nearly killed when unknown assailants detonated a bomb in Zimbabwe’s second largest city, Bulawayo, last Saturday on June 23.
