His Excellency Peter Kallaghe, the Tanzanian High Commissioner in London, had been recalled to take up a position in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs relating to cooperation with the East African Community and Africa more widely. He had been with us for 5 years, very supportive all that time, and we will miss him.
A reception to say goodbye to him and Joyce his wife was held on the evening of Thursday 18 Feb in the George Thomas Room, Central Hall Westminster. Some sixty people attended from BTS, the Tanzania High Commission and other organisations which work in Tanzania.
Andrew Coulson, Chair of BTS, Dan Cook, Vice Chair of TDT and Aseri Katanga of Computers4Africa paid tribute to the the work of the High Commissioner in building up relations between our two countries and to the work of Mrs Kallaghe in raising funds for support work in Tanzania. The opportunity to meet with other people who have contact with Tanzania was well used and plans to work together were started.
