South Africa President Cyril Ramaphosa arrives at Dodoma Airport, the United Republic of Tanzania for the official State Funeral of the late President of Tanzania Dr John Pombe Joseph Magufuli taking place at Jamhuri Stadium in Dodoma.
The Tanzanian president Magfuli died last week following heart-related complications in a hospital in Dar es Salam at the age of 61.
He took over the office of the presidency in 2015 on a ticket of anti-corruption after his years of service in the various cabinet of the government.
Magafuli was nicknamed “The Bulldozer” for his fondness for massive public works and a reputation for pushing through policies despite opposition; a hard-charging leadership style that won support from many Tanzanians.
But he also attracted criticism at home and abroad for what opponents saw as his eccentric handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
He decried lockdowns, was sceptical of COVID-19 drugs and suggested vaccines may be part of a foreign plot to steal Africa’s wealth.
“Vaccines are not good. If they were, then the white man would have brought vaccines for HIV/AIDS,” he said.
