President of the United Republic of Tanzania

RE: CONGRATULATORY MESSAGE ON THE OCCASION OF UNION DAY IN THE UNITED REPUBLIC OF TANZANIA
The East African Community wishes to congratulate Your Excellency, Madam Samia Suluhu Hassan, the Government and the People of the United Tanzania of Tanzania on this auspicious occasion of Union Day 2021.
Union Day marks the coming together in 1964 of mainland Tanganyika and the island of Zanzibar to form the United Republic of Tanzania. This was a critical step in the coming together of the peoples and nations of our region to form the East African Community, a bloc that we East Africans and the rest of Africa have always looked up to with pride.
I therefore, on behalf of the Community on this first day of duty, convey my best wishes to Your Excellency, the government and the people of the United Republic of Tanzania as they mark Union Day.
May the Almighty God continue to bless the United Republic of Tanzania and the East African Community at large.
Hon. Dr. Peter M. Mathuki
