Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation minister Bernard Membe is expecting to attend a meeting scheduled for November 20 in Nairobi, Kenya, to discuss how to help Kenyans and Somalis in the war against the Al-Shaabab group. Membe will be among other foreign ministers from the East and Central African countries who will attend the meeting. Membe said this in Dar es Salaam yesterday when responding to questions by journalists who had wanted to know whether Tanzania had plans to help Kenya in fighting against Al-Shaabab. The minister said the meeting will also discuss how both countries will resolve the problem of hunger in Somalia where many people have died due to famine caused by the war. According to him, the piracy problem had affected the countries, thus the ministers will get a chance to discuss the issue and will be provided with reports which will help them to decide on how best to intervene to help Kenya. "I can not say here the position of Tanzania until the meeting ends. We know Al-Shaabab is fuelling piracy," he said. He said also that Tanzania will train Somali soldiers on how to protect themselves and build their nation. Speaking about the health condition of ministers admitted to Indian hospitals, he said Tanzanians should not stop praying for them, adding that both of them were doing well and were expected to be discharged this month. He said the health situation of Water minister Prof. Mark Mwandosya, Works deputy minister Dr. Harisson Mwakyembe, Industry and Trade minister Dr. Cyril Chami and Kigoma North member of parliament Zitto Kabwe was stable and improving. The three ministers and member of parliament have been referred to Apollo hospital in India for treatment.
