Suluhu 'A Rising Star' In East Africa

At last the East African region has achieved a leader who has a regional vision. The more than sixty year old East African countries have been having troubled relationship despite efforts to strengthen ties through the East Africa Federation. Apart from the establishment of the East Africa Legislative Assembly at Arusha and the East African anthem, the three main government leaders have been at logger heads many times.

Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania are the main countries that lays the foundation of the East Africa Federation. However the past and present leaders have not been able to cement cordial relationship between the states. Though Yoweri Museveni has never been involved in serious diplomatic row with Tanzania, the relationship between the two countries has been lukewarm.

Serious diplomatic confrontation has been between Kenya and the two countries. Migingo island has remained a bone of contention between Kenya and Uganda. But it's Kenyas' diplomatic row with Tanzania that becomes intense to the point of severing ties with Tanzania.

The future of East Africa looks promising with the coming of President Samia Suluhu. Within a few weeks of her presidency she has launched a serious diplomatic relationship with Uganda and Kenya by signing major infrastructural projects and opening new frontier for business. If she continues with this momentum , Tanzania is poised to rival Kenyas' socioeconomic development and become the regional economic hub.
