President Kenyatta calls Magufuli over earthquake

12 September 2016, 20:47

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has called his Tanzanian counterpart John Pombe Magufuli and consoled over the loss of lives following an earthquake. 

The Kenyan Head of State Monday spoke to Magufuli on phone, expressing solidarity and sympathy to the government and people of Tanzania after the calamity. 

At least 16 people lost their lives in the devastating earthquake which also resulted in injuries and loss of property in the incident that hit the East African country on Saturday. 

“I have learnt with deep sorrow and regret the loss of sixteen precious lives, injury to hundreds of our Tanzanian brothers and sisters, as well massive destruction of property and livelihoods following the devastating earthquake in Bukoba District, in North Western Tanzania,” President Kenyatta said.

He added: “On behalf of the Government and the people of Kenya, and on my own behalf, I extend heartfelt condolences and sympathies to Your Excellency, the Government and people of Tanzania, and particularly to the grieving families.”

According to a statement sent to newsrooms by Manoah Esipisu, the State House Spokesperson, President Kenyatta wished those injured quick recovery and prayed to God to comfort the bereaved families.

The head of state promised that Kenya will send a donation of 4000 iron sheets, 400 blankets and 100 mattresses that will be airlifted by the Kenya Defence Forces on Tuesday to assist those affected by the disaster in Tanzania.
