Dar-es-Salaam: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday arrived in Kenya on the final leg of his four-nation Africa tour aimed at enhancing ties with the continent after wrapping up his visit.

Namaste Nairobi! PM @narendramodi arrives in Kenya for the fourth and final leg of his Africa tour, tweeted Vikas Swarup on his official Twitter handle.

Earlier in the day, Modi held talks with Tanzanian President John Pombe Joseph Magufuli on a wide range of issues.

During his visit to Tanzania, he extended India's full support to Tanzania to meet its development needs and signed five agreements, including one for providing a Line of Credit of USD 92 million in the water resources sector.

He also met 'Solar Mamas', a group of rural women solar engineers from Africa who have been trained under Government of India-supported programmes to fabricate, install, use, repair and maintain solar lanterns and household solar lighting systems in their villages.

Modi is on five-day four-nation tour. He also visited Mozambique and South Africa before arriving. The focus of the African tour is on deepening cooperation in areas of hydrocarbons, maritime security, trade and investment, agriculture and food.
