On the final leg of his four-country African tour, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday left Tanzania for Kenya on the fourth.

Tanzanian President John Magufuli personally saw Modi off at the Julius Nyerere International Airport here.

External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted:

On his arrival in Nairobi, Modi will address an Indian diaspora rally on Sunday evening.

Earlier in the day, India and Tanzania signed five agreements following delegation-level talks headed by Modi and Magufuli.

The Prime Minister also interacted with a group of 30 African ‘Solar Mamas’, rural women who have been trained in harnessing solar energy under the Indian government programmes.

He also met members of the Indian community, who number around 50,000 in Tanzania.

Modi arrived in Tanzania on Saturday night from South Africa on the third leg of his first official tour of mainland Africa.

This is the first prime ministerial visit from India to Tanzania in five years since the visit of then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in 2011.

Modi started his five-day Africa tour with a visit to Mozambique.
