We expect he will use his rich experience in the aviation business to propel the business and achieve our corporate goals. We are also excited that we have given a homegrown young Tanzanian to run our company, we believe this will inspire youth to believe in themselves that they can achieve anything if they work hard and show commitment, as it was shown by Mr. Mwanri. This also is to support the government efforts to promote youth and local talents by giving them the opportunity to take up top management posts.”
