President Yoweri Museveni left for Tanzania this morning
President Yoweri Museveni has Thursday morning departed for Dodoma to attend the swearing in ceremony of his Tanzanian counterpart John Pombe Magufuli
Magufuli is taking oath to serve Tanzania for another five years, and his second term, which will run from 2021-2025.
A number foreign leaders are also expected at the event including Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Burundi’s Prime Minister Alaine Bunyoni, Botswana’s Vice President Slumber Tsogwane and Mozambique Prime Minister Carlos Agostinho do Rosário.
Magufuli was re-elected for a second term last week securing a huge victory against his main opponent Tundu Lissu, whose party dismissed the election results alleging widespread irregularities.
Magufuli garnered 12.5 million votes-84 per cent of the votes cast against 13 per cent for Opposition Leader Tundu Lissu, who got 1.9 million votes.
