Tanzania: Samia Extols NMB Community Support Pace

Namibia: Peugeot Will Export 'Once Issues Are Resolved'

PRESIDENT Samia Suluhu Hassan has been impressed by NMB Bank’s pace of increasing social assistance in celebrating Kizimkazi cultural celebrations in Zanzibar.

Speaking during the culmination of the Kizimkazi festival which was formerly known as Kizimkazi Day, President Samia said the bank has been a good partner since the inception of the festival in 2016, adding that it has been active and shoulder to shoulder working with the government to address challenges in the community in its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

“I thank NMB for the great contribution they make to these celebrations, every year we have various projects in the health and education sector being implemented as our partner in development,” she pointed out.

Elaborating, President Samia said that when the festival started she did not know it would be that big, because historically it was for residents of Makunduchi Constituency to celebrate a farewell after their party-Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) candidate was approved as a running mate of the president in the general elections of 2015.

“Maybe I should tell you four goals of this festival; the first is to bring the Kizimkazi children together, to get to know each other and love each other.

The second is to protect and maintain our traditions and customs, the third is to encourage development activities through the implementation of various projects and the fourth is to promote the economic opportunities available in the area including historical, beaches and cultural tourism.
