Angolan minister to attend Kikwete's presidential inauguration

Luanda- Angola (PANA) -- Angolan Foreign Minister Joao Bernardo de Miranda on Tuesday arrived in Dar-Es-Salaam to attend President-elect Jakaya Kikwete's inauguration on Wednesday in the Tanzanian capital.
De Miranda is also expected to deliver to the new Tanzanian leader a message from President Jose Eduardo dos Santos of Angola.
Kikwete was a candidate of the Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM, or Revolutionary Party), which has been ruling Tanzania since 1961.
He won the poll held last Wednesday with 80% of the votes, according to the official results.
Kikwete succeeds outgoing Benjamin Mkapa who has served for two terms.
