The nation of Tanzania recently lost its dear President John Pombe Magufuli who succumbed to heart issues shortly after winning the second term in office. During his time, Tanzanians discarded any information that purported to be of Covid-19.

Instead, they opted for prayers and developing strong faith as their leader encouraged them that was the only way to defeat the pandemic. However, after his burial, the new President Mama Samia Suluhu Hassan appears to be taking a twist on this matter.

The first female leader of the country has acknowledged the presence of the deadly virus that has been ravaging the world. In a first-time move, the leader has released official figures of the disease since May 202.

Suluhu has revealed that the country has 100 cases of Covid-19 virus, TV 47 media has reported. She has encouraged Tanzanians to observe protocols such as sanitizing and wearing masks - something which was not seen before.

Meanwhile, what do you think about this?
