Magufuli's Grave Given Awesome New Look After a 'Mabati' Structure Caused Public Uproar -PHOTOS

A few days ago, Tanzanians took to social media to attack President Samia Suluhu Hassan's government after the late John Pombe Magufuli's gravesite appeared on social media.

Pictures of the grave emerged on social media after Vice President Dr Philip Mpango had visited the site to say a word of prayer for the late President.

Magufuli's grave had been surrounded by a semi-permanent structure, that had been made from iron sheets.

Tanzanians were angered by the 'mabati' structure that housed Magufuli's grave, a leader they considered a hero or simply 'baba was taifa'.

However, it has emerged that the mabati structure was only being used to cover Magufuli's grave from destructions because of the construction that was going around the place.

Outside the semi-permanent structure, there was construction going on of a big and permanent structure that will house Magufuli's grave.

When the pictures of the newly constructed structure surfaced on social media this Tuesday, Tanzanians expressed their satisfaction with its awesome look.

Others said the government had just constructed it in record time after a public uproar on social media Tanzanians had raised.
