Tanzania’s President Jakaya Murisho Kikwete was accorded a stunning ovation in his tribute to the late Nelson Mandela.
President Kikwete’s speech made shame of Jomo Kenyatta regime that failed to help ANC set base in Kenya. Kikwete highlighted the support given by Mwalimu Julius Nyerere to the struggle against apartheid in South Africa.
Kikwete named TANU, ANC, ZANU PF, FRELIMO and SWAPO as comrades, KANU was left OUT!
“Tanzania under Julius Nyerere helped Black people struggle for emancipation in SA. Kenya under Jomo Kenyatta helped Boers/Whites to oppress and subjugate Black people in SA. Today, Jakaya Kiwete was global platform to pay tribute to global icon” George Nyongesa posted in his Facebook Page.
Here is president Kikwete’s full speech.
