Africa-Press – Tanzania. ZANAIBZR: PRESIDENT Hussein Mwinyi on Sunday extended appreciation to President Samia Suluhu Hassan, Tanzanians and all mourners for their support and tributes following the death of Mzee Ali Hassan Mwinyi, who was laid to rest on Saturday.

Number of mourners, within and outside the country, paid their tributes since the news about passing away of the Tanzania’s second phase president was announced.

Zanzibar President Mwinyi made the statement at the Khitma prayers, yesterday, a day after Mwinyi’s burial at Mangapwani area in Unguja.

“I may have a lot to talk about, but as I stand here, I am losing and can not control my emotions. Let me thank you all for the unwavering support during the funeral. I am grateful for each one of you during this difficult time, for the love and condolences,” Dr Mwinyi said.

The Zanzibar President particularly poured praise to Dr Samia Suluhu Hassan, President of the union government, for her support.

“Since the late Mwinyi’s health turned serious last November, Dr Samia frequently made visits to our family to comfort him, and at one time the deceased shed tears of joy after seeing Mama Samia.” Dr Mwinyi further expressed his happiness to Dr Samia, noting that even before his family could think of organising yesterday’s special prayer (Dua/Khitma) for the late Mwinyi, she quickly wanted to fund the prayer.

“We as a family accepted the dua that was held today (yesterday) at Nyamanzi area in Unguja West B District.” “I want to thank all of you for everything you have done, physically and through messages, to comfort me and family during the time of the funeral. Everything was planned and executed perfectly,” Dr Mwinyi said, extending special thanks to medical staff at Mzena Hospital for seriously working around the clock in trying to save life of his father.

“Although I am a trained medical doctor who has practiced in and outside Tanzania, I salute the medical team at Mzena for working 24 hours in trying to save the late Mwinyi’s life,” he insisted.

He also extended his thanks to people led by Muslims clerics from neighbouring countries for travelling all that far to join the funeral, as he promised to lead and unite the late Mwinyi’s family.
