UHURU donates millions to MAGUFULI for families of those who perished in ferry tragedy even as we have our own tragedy

Friday October 12, 2018-The Government of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, has moved in to support Tanzania with KSh5.5 million donation for the families of the MV Nyerere ferry disaster.

Handing the cheque to President John Pombe Magufuli, Kenyan Ambassador to Tanzania Dan Kazungu said the money could help support the survivors and upgrading local health centres.

"The Government of Kenya led by President Uhuru Kenyatta has pledged Kshs5.5 Million (Tshs125 Million) to go towards support of the survivors of the tragedy, upgrading the local Health Centre & construction of a Memorial Centre in remembrance of the victims," said Kazungu.

Over 130 people lost their lives after the ferry carrying over 200 passengers sank into Lake Victoria on, September 20.

The gesture comes even as we have our own tragedy where a bus crashed in Fort Ternan killing 56 people and one wonders if Magufuli will reciprocate.
