PM to grace global peace day  

PRIME Minister Kassim Majaliwa will this week grace International Day of Peace which will be marked in Kilimanjaro Region.

The Kilimanjaro Regional Commissioner Nurdin Babu disclosed here at the weekend that the Premier is scheduled to be the guest of honour during the United Nations-sanctioned day which is observed annually on September 21.

“We’ve been privileged to host such a great day, I therefore appeal to all of you to come in numbers as we commemorate this auspicious event in our region,” explained Mr Babu at a press conference.

According to Mr Babu, Tanzania was a beacon of peace and harmony in east and southern Africa and the world at large, and thus it was fitting to host the day in Kilimanjaro.

“Without peace, all other goals—from focusing on youth and women’s needs, to addressing climate change and water, energy and food security—will be impossible, it worth noting that Tanzania has achieved such a feat thanks to peace and security that we’ve enjoyed over the years,” said Mr Babu.

The regional boss called on the youth to complement government’s efforts of upholding peace and harmony in the country.

Tanzania is revered for vibrant national consultative process that cements national unity and social cohesiveness, which ultimately contributes to promoting peace.

Tribal diversity in Tanzania is conspicuously embraced, celebrated, and inter-weaved in both modern and rural lifestyles. The sense of cohesion and nationalism exercised for decades by its leadership has propelled the country to be admired regionally as a peace haven.

Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on September 21.

The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire.
