We are shocked to announce that Tanzania president John Magafuli has died at the age of 61.
His death was made known by his Vice Samia Suluhu Hassan who on Wednesday revealed that after he died after staying more than two-week from public life.
His sudden absence from the public had created fears and rumours that he had contracted COVID-19.
“Dear Tanzanians, it is sad to announce that today 17 March 2021 around 6 p.m. we lost our brave leader, President John Magufuli who died from heart illness at Mzena hospital in Dar es Salaam where he was getting treatment,” the vice president said on state broadcaster TBC.
She said burial arrangements were underway and announced 14 days of mourning and the flying of flags at half staff.
Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa said on Friday that he had spoken to Magufuli, and blamed the narrative of the president’s ailment on some “hateful” Tanzanians living abroad.
Henceforth, Vice President Hassan, 61, will take over the leadership of the country for the remaining five-year term that Magufuli began serving last year after winning a second term. She would be the East African nation’s first female president.
Samia was in the semi-autonomous archipelago of Zanzibar.
She studied economics in Britain worked for the U.N.’s World Food Programme and then held various government posts prior to becoming Tanzania’s first female vice president in 2015
