    In Tanzania, President Ruto cut off Samia Suluhu’s translator.

    Published on

    During a joint news conference with President Samia Suluhu, President William Ruto cut off a translator from State House, Tanzania.

    While in the middle of his speech, Ruto was interrupted by a member of Suluhu’s communication team, prompting him to halt and ask what was going on. The individual said it was for the benefit of public information dissemination through the media.

    “I’m not sure if it’s essential to translate; is there anybody who isn’t fluent in English? Allow it to be, I’ll repeat it later since you’ll confuse me “The President remarked.

    Ruto has previously confessed that he had difficulty communicating in Swahili, the national language of Tanzania.

    The president said that he plans to continue visiting Tanzania so that he may become fluent in the local Kiswahili language.

    The new President of Kenya has told his Tanzanian colleague that he would keep up the good diplomatic ties that were established under his predecessor, Uhuru Kenyatta.

    Moreover, Ruto promised to speed up a number of projects, including the building of a gas pipeline from Mtwara to Dar Es Salaam through Mombasa and finally to Nairobi.

    Cordial bilateral connections have existed between the two nations for decades, and President Suluhu has urged for further reductions in economic restrictions.
