Edward Lowassa Biography, Family & Net Worth (Wealth).


Edward Lowassa served as Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office during President Ali Hassan Mwinyi’s second term. He sought the nomination of Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) as its presidential candidate in 1995 but was eliminated in the early stages single-handedly by the charismatic former President Julius Nyerere, who strongly believed that Lowassa was not then a correct material for the Presidency.

Edward Lowassa retained his parliamentary seat and became a strong backbencher in Parliament until 1997 when he was appointed Minister for State— Environment & Poverty,in the Vice President’s Office. Following the 2000 general elections in Tanzania, he was appointed Minister of Water and Livestock Development and made his mark as a hardworking minister.

In 2005 Lowassa decided not to seek the CCM presidential nomination but became a key campaigner for his long-time friend, President Jakaya Kikwete, in his bid for the presidential seat. Kikwete, running on a CCM ticket, won the elections comfortably by beating other contestants by a large margin. He polled 82% of the votes. In return, President Kikwete nominated Lowassa as Prime Minister on 29th December 2005. Parliament overwhelmingly confirmed the nomination, with 312 votes in his favour and only two opposed. Lowassa was sworn on 30 December.

Edward Lowassa received his undergraduate degree in Theatre Arts from the University of Dar es Salaam and a Masters Degree in Development Studies from The University of Bath in the United Kingdom. Lowassa did his secondary education at Ilboru Secondary School and concluded his high school studies at Milambo Secondary School in Tabora in 1973.
