When our Beloved Mawlana Hazar Imam ascended to the Throne of Imamat as the 49th Imam of Shia Ismaili Muslims, enthronement ceremonies were held in the three East African Cities of Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), Nairobi (Kenya) and Kampala (Uganda) in the month of October 1957 followed by ceremonies in Karachi (Pakistan) Dacca (Bangladesh) and Mumbai (India) in the months of January, February and March 1958 respectively.
