She is a very brilliant woman. Since she took over as the President of Tanzania, after the death of her predecessor, Samia Suhulu has been inviting one by one African business leaders to her country. Her compatriots would have gone to China and other nations without remembering that people like Aliko Dangote have invested close to $800 million in Tanzania.
As they say in business, it is easier to sell more to an existing customer than a new one. And these business leaders are responding: more investment money to Tanzania.
“I congratulate her for the shift changes that she is doing here in Tanzania and also to assure her that we will continue to invest in Tanzania to help create jobs, wealth and prosperity for the people of Tanzania. I think she needs that support and we have reassured her that we will continue to establish here in Tanzania to support what she is doing…she can only do policies, it is not the job of government to create jobs. We will help her to invest and create jobs in Tanzania. We are looking at other areas, maybe fertilizer and other investment opportunities here in Tanzania but you can be rest assured that, with the discussion that we had with her, we will look for other opportunities to help her to make sure that this her vision and dream will come through.” Dangote
