The U.S. Embassy in Tanzania has announced a temporary shutdown on the 14 and 15 of May due to widespread network issues within the nation 

The embassy’s official communication indicated that operations would cease on these dates because of deteriorating network conditions stemming from a severed undersea cable that has impacted Tanzania, Kenya, and other countries in the East and Southern African region

"Due to nationwide network degradation, the embassy will be closed to the public on 14 and 15 May. Consular appointments scheduled for these days will be cancelled and rescheduled. However, the consular section will remain open for visa pickups and emergency cases involving American citizens," the embassy conveyed.

The incident of the submarine cable being cut has resulted in internet connectivity challenges for several African nations, including Kenya.

Consequently, internet speeds have diminished, leading companies such as Safaricom to alert their clientele about the ongoing service interruptions.
