Mkapa Praises M7 for Peace making

Tanzania’s Mkapa Praises Museveni for Peace Making in Africa.

Former Tanzanian President, Benjamin William Mkapa, has commended President Yoweri Museveni for being a peacemaker in Africa.

Mr. Mkapa was speaking in a meeting with President Museveni at State House, Nakasero when he called on the Ugandan leader this morning.

President Museveni and his guest discussed a variety of issues ranging from socio-economic and political matters within the East African Region in particular and the African continent in general.

President Museveni is mediator of the Burundi peace process while Mr. Mkapa is the East African Community Facilitator of the Inter-Burundi Dialogue, a regional-led process that aims to bring peace to Burundi through dialogue between the Government in Bujumbura and opposition groups in that country.

Mr. Mkapa was appointed to the Inter-Burundi Dialogue position by a Summit of leaders of the East African Community in Arusha in March 2016.
