Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta arrived in Dar es Salaam on Thursday to begin a two-day official visit of Tanzania, which he started by joining President Samia Suluhu and other Tanzanians in commemorating the country's 60th Independence Day.

This is the first time President Suluhu is leading her country's Independence Day celebrations since she took office in March following the death of former President John Pombe Magufuli.

During his stay in Tanzania, Kenyatta is also expected to hold bilateral talks with his host on various issues, culminating in the signing of a raft of agreements.

The Kenyan president has been accompanied in the trip by various ministers; Raychelle Omamo (Foreign Affairs), Betty Maina (Trade and Industry), James Macharia (Transport), Joe Mucheru (Communications) and Adan Mohamed (East African Affairs).

This is the second time in seven months that Kenyatta and Suluhu have met, having also met in Nairobi in May.

During that visit, the two leaders sought to thaw tensions that had been brewing under President Magufuli, following disagreements on travel restrictions between the two countries.

Rwanda's President Paul Kagame also joined Kenyatta and Suluhu for Thursday's Independence Day celebration. - CGTN
