Why we will always call John Pombe Magufuli the greatest African leader

After writing on the errors and the bans president John Pombe Magufuli effected on Tanzanians, many pleaded I should also do his good part for he was definitely one of the best leaders.

Looking at his time as a minister John Pombe Magufuli always pushed for completed developments which saw Tanzania grow in the Infrastructure sector .

But as president Jakaya Kikwete handed power over to Pombe Magufuli , many claimed it was another show for an Authoritarian just as Kikwete to carry in power

As of my research his strict authority ensured Tanzanians got the best, as he stood on the front line of fighting off corruption , first by firing over 9000 civil servants.

To add on was his signing off the construction of the Rufiji dam , something he had worked on from his times as a minister and which was not to be built through donations and grants but by taxpayers money.

The most memorable moment was when he called in a contractor who had won a tender of water supply to a local village , had received 800 million for the project and nothing was done

Many are the good things he did as a leader not for personal gain but for the best welfare of the Tanzanians.
