Ninayo furaha kubwa kuwa nanyi siku hii ya leo. Asanteni sana kwa kutualika.
It is truly a pleasure to be in Mwanza, on the shores of a lake that is as large as a sea. I did not realise that Mwanza is also the second largest city of Tanzania. I hope I will have the time to see the impressive Bismarck Rocks.
It is also a pleasure for the European Union to be present again at celebrations for the World Press Freedom Day in Tanzania. Last year the event in Morogoro was as vibrant and received a lot of coverage.
The United Nations Resident Coordinator, Mr Alvaro Rodriguez, and the European Union Head of Political, Press and Information, Ms. Luana Reale, have been on a two day joint visit in Mwanza Region. While in the region, the two delegates visited EU and UN supported development projects. They have also taken part in the national commemorations of the World Press Freedom Day held on Tuesday May 3rd, and organized by the Media Institute of Southern Africa – Tanzania Chapter (MISA-Tan) in collaboration with other media stakeholders.
