Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa says his Tanzanian counterpart, John Magufuli, was “unwavering on principle and a man of action”.

At a memorial service here on Monday, he said President Magufuli worked diligently for the development of his country, Sadc and the rest of Africa.

“He was a leader who led from the front,” said President Mnangagwa.

The Tanzania leader died last week from heart-related complications after two weeks away from public duties.

His deputy, Samia Suluhu Hassan, assumed the Presidency in keeping with the country’s constitution.  

Several Heads of State and Government, among them Edgar Lungu (Zambia) and Uhuru Kenyatta (Kenya), are here to pay their last respects.
