Tanzania: Aga Khan Arrives for Two-Day Official VisitSource: Africa Report on Business

Dar es Salaam — The founder and chairman of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), His Highness the Aga Khan, is expected in the country today for a two-day official visit.

The visit follows an invitation by President John Magufuli.

The Aga Khan, who is also the Imam (spiritual leader) of Shia Ismaili Muslims, will visit Tanzania on the second leg of his East Africa tour.

The visit is part of a series of tours that coincide with the commemoration of the Aga Khan’s Diamond Jubilee commemorating 60 years as the spiritual leader of the Shia Ismaili Muslim community. Jubilees in the Shia Ismaili Muslim tradition have traditionally served as opportunities to launch or advance social, cultural and economic development projects.

“The projects include hospitals, schools, universities and financial institutions that serve people of all backgrounds and faiths,” said the statement.
