Modi arrives in Tanzania

Dar-es-Salaam, July 10 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday arrived in Tanzania from South Africa on the third leg of his four-nation tour of Africa.

“From Durban to Dar es Salaam! PM @narendramodi arrives late night in Tanzania on the 3rd leg of his African sojourn,” External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swaroop tweeted.

Modi waved as Tanzanian artists put up a lively show at the Julius Nyerere Airport on the tarmac.

This is the first prime ministerial visit from India to Tanzania in five years since the visit of then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in 2011.

On Sunday, Modi will hold bilateral discussions with Tanzanian President John Magufuli in Dar-es-Salaam which will be followed by the signing of agreements.

A major highlight of Modi’s visit to Tanzania will be a meeting with a group of “solar mamas”.

“Solar mamas” are women from developing nations who have been trained in harnessing solar energy at the Barefoot College at Tilonia village in Ajmer, Rajasthan.

Modi will also interact with members of the Indian community, which numbers around 50,000 in Tanzania.

Thereafter he will leave for Nairobi, Kenya, where he will address an Indian diaspora rally on Sunday evening.
