The African National Congress (ANC) has send its condolences to the government of Tanzania following last week’s ferry disaster in which more than 200 people were killed.
Tanzanian President John Magufuli on Friday ordered the arrest of the management of a ferry that capsized in Lake Victoria, as the death toll climbed to 131 and rescue workers pressed on with the search to find scores more people feared drowned.
At least 44 people died and scores were feared missing after a ferry capsized in Victoria, Africa’s largest lake, with a desperate search for survivors set to resume in Tanzania on Friday.
Fifteen people died and 13 were injured when a truck carrying potatoes crashed into five vehicles in the southern Tanzanian town of Mbeya, a hospital official said Saturday.
Tanzania wants to build a pipeline to pump natural gas to neighbouring Uganda, another step in the two countries’ bid to expand energy cooperation.
