Dr. Kikwete popularly known as JK said this in his home suburb, Chalinze in Bagamoyo district, Coast Region during the 45 years celebrations for the leading party, Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) where the climax is on 5th February.
He said that, despite taking power in a difficult period after the death of Fifth Phase President Dr. John Magufuli, Samia has shown that she has the courage to lead the nation even in her short period of time in power.
In addition, he said that President Samia has shown Tanzania and the world that she has the ability and efforts to bring development to its citizens.
“I urged Tanzanians to continue supporting President Samia Suluhu Hassan so that she can achieve the vision of bringing development to the country,” he said.
