Tanzania's Finance Minister Philip Mpango has today, 23 February 2021, appeared in public for the first time since he contracted a rare disease that left him with breathing problems.

It was said that the minister had contracted the deadly COVID-19 before he was admitted at the Benjamini Mkapa Hospital in Dodoma.

At some point, word on the streets went viral saying he had succumbed to the deadly disease before President John Pombe Magufuli assured Tanzanians that he was doing well and that he had sent him a message.

Mpango has today revealed that due to limited ICU facilities at the hospital where he was admitted, he was forced to carry with him his own oxygen cylinder.

He told the media that at one point, he was advised to seek advanced medication from Dar es Salaam but he refused to be moved from Benjamini Mkapa Hospital.

He has stayed at the facility for 14 days and is currently recovering well.

However, he noted his voice is not okay yet.

"This is my 14th day of being treated at the Benjamin Mkapa Hospital in Dodoma, I came with a completely Oxygen supply, today is the third day I am out of the oxygen machine," he said.
