According to the former president, he had to do it as he had no one to play with back at home as all of his sisters had joined school.

”I first went to school in around 1956 in Lushoto. But, you know had started school when I was very young and I could play a lot.” Kikwete said.

The former president said he was ”expelled” by the teacher on the first day due to his stubbornness.

”I was very cheeky, I would jump up and down and it was then when the teacher called me and told me that I should not come back again to school the next day. When the teacher told me that, I was happy, I was not really into school, was just going because my sisters had gone too. I really hated being confined in a class for the whole days,” he added.
