Citizen Tv’s Lulu Hassan shares her special moment with President Suluhu at State House [PHOTOS]

Citizen Tv News anchor Lulu Hassan has expressed her gratitude to the Tanzanian president as well as to her former colleague Kanze Dena for the special Iftar evening that they shared.

The Citizen Media personality was among few Muslim women who joined Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu for Iftar (a special evening meal with which Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast at sunset) at State House on Tuesday, May 4, 2021.

In her statement, Hassan said that there is need for us to embrace the spirit of unity and togetherness.

“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much,” she observed.

Other prominent Muslim women who attended the special dinner include; Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed, former Principal Secretary Fatuma Hirsi, Kwale Woman Representative Zulekha Hassan, among other prominent personalities. 

While addressing the media, Tanzania’s President Suluhu and his Kenya’s counterpart Uhuru had announced a Ksh.100 billion gas pipeline deal which will run from Dar es Salaam to Mombasa which is intended to reduce the cost of energy. 

The 600-kilometre pipeline will transport natural gas from Songo Songo Island and Mnazi Bay gas fields in Southern Tanzania Mombasa in Kenya.

Suluhu is expected to address a joint sitting of the Kenyan Parliament – to be attended by both members of the Senate and the National Assembly. 

Announcing plans for her address, speaker Justin Muturi stated that only 112 of the 416 MPs would be allowed to sit in the National Assembly chamber for the address by visiting the president.

He revealed that the seats had been reserved for 24 Senators and 88 members of the National Assembly on a first-come-first-served basis.

MPs were further directed to remove their vehicles from the parking yard near the Senate entrance to pave way for Suluhu’s reception.

“You shall be informed of the seating arrangements. Since Wednesday is not a scheduled day for a sitting, the House will adjourn as soon as the visiting president finishes her speech,” Muturi stated.
