East Africa: Is Kikwete the face of the region?

Is Kikwete (the President of Tanzania) the face of East Africa?,” asks African Affairs. He writes,
“Having taken to reading The East African of late,I couldn't help noticing something that has graced the front pages of the said newspaper in the past four or so issues.
If you are an ardent reader of the same, you may have noticed it too. The main picture on the front pages in these issues shows a ‘quixotic’ East African president with different people in each issue. This president is in the person of Mr. Kikwete of Tanzania.”
