In the country, 14 days of national mourning have been declared for Magufuli

Tanzanian Vice President Samia Suluhu Hassan announced that President John Magufuli has passed away. In his speech on state television, Hassan said, “We lost our brave leader.”

Hassan said that Magufuli had been treated at a hospital in Dar es Salaam since March 6 for a heart condition.

The 61-year-old leader won the elections held in October 2020 and took the presidency seat for the second time.

Covid-19 captured forward

The opposition in Tanzania yesterday called for an immediate announcement about the health status of Magufuli, who has not been seen for about 2 weeks and is allegedly caught in the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19).

The Tanzanian leader, who did not take measures by underestimating Kovid-19, was also claimed to have received virus treatment in Kenya on March 10.

Magufuli, who recommended steam treatment and eating fruit against Kovid-19, did not wear a mask at the events he attended.

In Tanzania, in February, Presidency Chief Secretary John Kijazi died for an undisclosed reason, Zanzibar Vice President Seif Sharif Hamad also died from Kovid-19.
