Fatigue 'to blame over JK collapse'

From The Citizen, Dar es Salaam
By Patty Magubira, Mwanza

President Jakaya Kikwete collapsed yesterday after delivering a speech during the African Inland Church of Tanzania (AICT) centenary anniversary at CCM Kirumba Stadium in Mwanza.

He, however, recovered swiftly and continued to preside at the well-attended function. Both President Kikwete and State House later attributed the collapse to fatigue.

Midway through his speech, President Kikwete asked thousands of AICT followers converged at the stadium to allow him to speak while seated, saying he felt exhausted.
