Kenya Donates to Tanzania After Ferry Disaster

Kenya has donated Sh5.5 million to neighbouring Tanzania for the victims of the ferry disaster that claimed over 200 lives.

The donation was presented to President John Magufuli by Kenya's High Commissioner Dan Kazungu.

"I was honoured to lead the team at the Kenya High Commission, Dar-es-Salaam to visit His Excellency President Dr John Pombe Joseph Magufuli, President of the United Republic of Tanzania to present the Government of Kenya support for the victims of the recent MV Nyerere Ferry disaster on Lake Victoria where over 200 Tanzanians lost their lives in the horrific tragedy," Kazungu said.

The pledge is equivalent to Tsh125 million, which will go towards support of the survivors of the tragedy, upgrading the local Health Centre and construction of a memorial centre in remembrance of the victims of this tragedy.

"Kenyans are standing with their Tanzanian brothers and sisters," Kazungu said.
