After our lunch with President Kikwete on June 30, we were taken to a State House garden and invited to have our photo taken with him and then we each formally said goodbye to him and another photo was taken. I’d like to express a special thank you to Muhidin Michuzi, the President’s Assistant Press Secretary, for sending me the photos. Before the following photo was taken he referred to me as “Mama Karatu” and complimented me on the work of Powering Potential and I invited him to come and visit one of our schools.

In the photo below, he’s telling me in Swahili that when he comes to Karatu he will come and visit a Powering Potential school.
