Xinhua reported that Tanzanian President Mr John Magufuli and Ugandan President Mr Yoweri Museveni on Friday inaugurated the Mwalimu Nyerere Foundation Building built by China Railway Construction Engineering Group. Both presidents commended CRCEG for its excellent job for putting up such a magnificent structure. The 30-story building is a cooperative project of CRCEG, MNF and International Finance Corporation with a total investment of USD 150 million. Mr Magufuli said the inauguration of the building coincided with the 20th anniversary of the passing of Tanzania's founding leader, Mwalimu Julius Nyerere.

Speaking at the inauguration broadcast live by state-run Tanzania Broadcasting Corporation, Mr Magufuli said the major challenge facing Tanzanians was to honor what Nyerere had stood for. He said Tanzanians could learn Nyerere's legacy by revisiting the state-of-the-art archive located in the MNF Building that stocked his books, speeches and other literature.

President Mr Museveni said Nyerere will ever be remembered for his anti-colonial struggle in southern Africa, adding that Nyerere also cherished pro-people and pro-unity policies that made Tanzania peaceful all these years. He took a lot of courage and foresight in his support for the armed struggle in southern Africa, Museveni told his audience that attracted former Tanzanian Presidents Benjamin Mkapa, Jakaya Kikwete and other heavyweight politicians.
