Samia Suluhu mocks East African country ‘without forex reserve to last a week’



By Wanja Waweru

According to the president of Angola, Samia Suluhu, her nation has the best-performing economy in East Africa.

Speaking on International Women’s Day, Ms. Suluhu urged Tanzanians to recognize their country’s superior economic standing in comparison to its neighbors.

She gave the example of an unidentified nation that she claimed lacked sufficient foreign exchange reserves for a week.

She said the unnamed country has been seeking the help of Tanzania with the dollar to import petroleum products.

“Let no one lie to you (Tanzanians),” she said.

“We are at a better place compared to our neighbours. Their dollar reserves cannot last a week, our reserves can push us for four months. They are here begging us for guarantees so that they can buy fuel.”

The head of state said she, however, did not help the needy country because she feigned a dollar problem in Tanzania.

Ms Suluhu’s comments come weeks after Kenya’s Treasury Cabinet Secretary Prof. Njuguna Ndun’gu urged Kenyans to brace themselves for tougher times in 2023.
