Thank you Aga Khan

Editor,

The world does not only operate via commercial enterprises and this has been amply proved by the Aga Khan University Hospital Nairobi.

Their gesture, offering free radiotherapy treatment to over 400 Ugandan cancer patients, even if it were though an MOU with Uganda’s cancer institute, is very commendable and I would wish to suggest that other companies and organizations follow suit.

Not only does this give hope to patients, it also shows that there is a lot of positives in regional cooperation.

Thank you Aga Khan Hospital.

THE recent visit by His Highness the Aga Khan has opened up Tanzania to greater investments in the economic and social development of the country.

The current Aga Khan, who has been a friend of Tanzania since before independence is a keen follower and partner in the socio-economic development of mostly underdeveloped or developing nations, especially in Africa and Asia. Shah Karim's love for Tanzania has amply been proved by his frequent visits to the country having also attended the Independence celebrations of Tanganyika in 1961.
