Tanzania President Samia Suluhu was joined by a cross-section of Kenyan Muslim women for Iftar at State House, Nairobi on Tuesday evening.  

Iftar is a meal taken by Muslims at sundown to break the daily fast during Ramadan.

"President @SuluhuSami was on Tuesday evening joined by a cross-section of Kenyan Muslim women for Iftar at State House, Nairobi ahead of a State Banquet hosted in her honour by President Uhuru Kenyatta and First Lady Margaret Kenyatta," a tweet by State House read in part. 

The Tanzanian President arrived in Kenya on Tuesday for a two-day state visit.

During the discussions between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Tanzanian counterpart, the two countries agreed to eliminate barriers hindering the smooth flow of trade and people between the two East African nations.

“Just as His Excellency the President has said, we have agreed that our Health Ministers need to sit down and come up with a structured system of testing our people at the border points to allow easy movement of our people so as to do their businesses,” President Samia Suluhu told the media at State House, Nairobi.

The two leaders noted that Kenya and Tanzania need to develop modalities for mutual recognition of COVID-19 test results, noting that the lack of harmonized protocols has hampered free flow of goods and people.

“First, we noted that trade between Kenya and Tanzania is facing some administrative challenges. They include non-tariff barriers and other restrictions which are frustrating trade and investment between our two countries,” President Kenyatta said.
