Integration will boost Africa’s potential, says President Magufuli
Posted on Tuesday, November 01, 2016 @ 23:44:00 CDT by kwpnews


NAIROBI (PSCU) Africa has the potential of being a donor continent if it unites and exploits its vast natural resources, visiting Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli has said.

 Speaking during a state banquet hosted in his honour by President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House, Nairobi, the Tanzanian leader expressed the need for African countries to partner in development for the benefit of their citizens.

 President Magufuli, who is the current chairman of the East African Community, assured Kenya of his support in accelerating the agenda of the community and enhancing regional development.

 “With EAC’s population of 165 million people, add the regional economic blocs of COMESA and SADC with a combined population of over 400 million people and other African economic blocs including ECOWAS, the continent is posed to become a donor community,” said President Magufuli.

 He underscored the need for the vast natural resources in the five East African community member states to be harnessed for the economic development of the residents of the region.

 President Magufuli also urged the African nations to guard against outside forces, with selfish motives, which could be fuelling turmoil within the continent.

 “For instance, there is no reason why the Democratic Republic of Congo with its vast natural resources would be wallowing in poverty,” President Magufuli said.

 President Kenyatta said the presence of a significant number of Kenyan investors in Tanzania was a clear testimony that the citizens of the two neighbouring countries were brothers and sisters.

 The President emphasized that EAC member states are not in competition with each other but complement one another for the mutual benefit of their citizens.

 “The success of the Kenyan economy is beneficial to Tanzanians and the success of Tanzanian economy is equally good to Kenyans,” said the President Kenyatta said.

 President Kenyatta said the visit by the Tanzanian leader has opened a new chapter in strengthening of the bilateral and brotherly relations between the two countries.

He welcomed the Tanzanian Government’s assurance of support to Kenyan investors keen on doing business in Tanzania, adding that Kenya is also open to the Tanzanian business community.

 President Kenyatta said the current crop of leaders in the East African region need to emulate the region’s founding fathers by working together to liberate their citizens economically.

 Deputy President William Ruto commended the Tanzanian leader for honouring the invitation by President Kenyatta, saying Kenya valued its fraternal relations with Tanzania.

 He said Kenya regards the leadership of President Magufuli highly, especially in steering the East Africa Community to greater heights. The Deputy President assured the Tanzanian leader of the Kenya’s support in the realization of a fully integrated East African Community.

 Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed said President Magufuli chairmanship of the EAC has seen the region witness major strides, especially in the accreditation process of South Sudan as a new member.

 Others who attended the state banquet were the First Lady Margaret Kenyatta, Cabinet Secretaries, Chief of Defence Forces General Samson Mwathethe, diplomats and other senior Government officials.
