May 6, 2013

Following the bomb attack on a Catholic church in the Tanzanian town of Arusha, President James Michel has expressed his condolences, on behalf of the People and Government of Seychelles, for what he described as a shocking attack:

“We join you in strongly condemning these acts of violence which are cruel and… only serve to undermine all efforts made to promote religious tolerance and build peace, stability, and prosperity in our sub-region and in Africa.”

In a letter sent to President Jakaya Kikwete, President Michel expressed solidarity with the victims and their families, as well as the Government and People of Tanzania.
