Mkapa Represents JPM At FRELIMO Celebrations.


Former President Benjamin Mkapa will tomorrow represent President John Magufuli to the 50th anniversary celebrations of Mozambique Liberation Front’s (FRELIMO) Second Congress at Niassa in Mozambique.
The Mozambican President, Filipe Nyusi had invited his Tanzanian counterpart, Dr Magufuli to attend the celebrations.
However, President Magufuli asked the former President to represent him along with Chama Cha Mapinduzi’s (CCM) Deputy Chairman (Mainland) Philip Mangula.
According to a statement by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and East African Cooperation in Dar es Salaam yesterday, President Magufuli will be attending to other duties but in recognition of the two countries strong relations, he decided to send high powered representation. Mr Mkapa and his entourage are expected to leave for Mozambique today and return on this Thursday.
