Friday, August 2, 2019 - Tanzanian President John Magufuli has fulfilled a promise he made to President Uhuru last month.
Magufuli had promised to gift Uhuru four peacocks when he visited him in Tanzania as a sign of deep respect and appreciation for the Kenyan President.
The birds were delivered at State House, Nairobi, on Friday morning by Tanzania High Commissioner to Kenya, Dr Pindi Hazara Chana, who also delivered a goodwill message from President Magufuli.
Speaking while receiving the four birds, the President said the birds signify the values of love, unity and brotherhood that exist between the people of the two countries.
“On my own behalf and on behalf of the people of Kenya, I receive this special gift.”
“This is in the spirit of brotherhood and friendship of the East African residents,” the President said.
“It’s a great honour not only between us as Presidents but as the people of East Africa.”
“This deep relationship and brotherhood should continue so as to benefit our current and future generations,” he added.
He assured the Tanzanian delegation that Kenya will ensure the four peacocks will be given great care to ensure that the pride grows.
