Tanzania is in deep mourning. The East African nation is mourning after the passing on of president John Pombe Magufuli who died at the Mzena hospital in the economic capital of Dar es Salaam while undergoing treatment for a heart situation.
As the dust continues to settle following the unexpected demise of president John Pombe Magufuli, details are now slowly emerging on how the east african nation has been hit by tragedies, one after the other especially in the last one month or so.
Few days ago, Tanzanian opposition leader Tundu Lissu shared the photo below saying that all the four men in the photo had died except one who is president Magufuli. And now that Magufuli has passed on, all the four men in the above photo are reportedly dead now.
This brings forth a very awkward situation, president John Pombe Magufuli died yesterday on 17th March 2021 after a relatively short illness.
Tanzanian vice president for its island of Zanzibar Mr Maalim Seif also passed on from COVID-19 related complications on 17th February, 2021.
As if that is not enough, Senior minister Ambassador Kijazi who was serving in Magufuli's adminstration also passed on ironically on 17th February 2021.
This is a great coincidence!
