Barely a week after former Tanzanian president John Pombe Magufuli was burried in his village of Chato, Tanzanian authorities seem keen to ensure that citizens are still mourning and commiserating from Magufuli's demise.
According to a twitter post by celebrated Tanzanian based journalist Millard Ayo, the police department has issued a warning to those prepared to celebrate the easter holidays.
The police department was categorical clearly stating that they don't expect to come across anyone endulging in any easter related celebrations as has been the norm in previous years.
The police further explained that the reason for curbing the celebrations was because the country was still mourning the sudden death of former president the late John Joseph Pombe Magufuli.
Tanzanians however were less impressed with the order giving different opinions on the latest development
Easy-take22- Nchi ni kubwa kuliko aliyetangulia.. Nchi ina Dini na madhehebu kibao, Serikal haina Dini sasa wa waache watz Wa watu washerehekee pasaka yao kwa Amani. This can loosely be translated as (The country is bigger than anyone who has left us. A county has different religions and denominations. The government is secular therefore the people of Tanzanian should be left alone to celebrate easter with peace)
