Tanzania’s President Samia Suluhu Hassan arrived in Kenya to meet her counterpart Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday for a two-day trip.
It is the first state visit by a Tanzanian leader Kenya since 2016.
Hassan, who became president following the death of her predecessor Magufuli in March, was greeted with a 21 gun salute.
But besides the pleasantries, her trip comes at a time when both countries are seeking to renew ties.
Under Magufuli’s rule, Kenya and Tanzania had soured relations with each country accusing the other of unfair trade practices.
Tanzania and Kenya now seek to resolve their tiffs on cross-border trade, including non-tariff barriers.
Another concern will be Covid-19 management.
Tanzania hasn’t released data on infections since May last year.
