In Conversation with H.E. Dr. Jakaya M. Kikwete, Former President of the United Republic of Tanzania (2005-2015)

September 20, 2018

On September 20, 2018, I moderated a conversation and book reading with the Former President of the United Republic of Tanzania, H.E. Dr. Jakaya M. Kikwete. President Kikwete spoke openly and inspiringly about his humble beginnings as well as his unexpected rise to presidency. Attendees had the opportunity to engage in a Q&A session with President Kikwete briefly after his lecture. The event brought together distinguished NYU faculty members, students, the diplomatic community, and members of the African diaspora. This event was in anticipation of the launch of President Kikwete’s book, “The Journey of My Life: From a Barefoot Schoolboy to President.”
