Doctors explain President's health

From The Citizen, Dar es Salaam
By Samuel Kamndaya

The State House yesterday allayed fears on President Jakaya Kikwete's health status, saying a thorough medical examination on him has proved beyond any doubt that he does not have any serious ailment.

"He is in an excellent condition... Dr Mohamed Janabi and I are in no way worried about his health... we're happy with his health status," President Kikwete's personal physician, Dr Peter Mfisi, told the press at the State House yesterday.

The press conference came just a few days after the President was forced to temporarily suspend his speech when addressing thousands of African Inland Church of Tanzania (AICT) believers in Kirumba Stadium in Mwanza during celebrations to mark 100 years of the church in Tanzania.
