Speaking to the media, President Samia who became the first lady President to rule Tanzania gave out the burial programme revealing that Magufuli will be laid to rest on Thursday next week, 25th March.
His body will be ferried from Lugalo hospital to the St. Pieters Oysterbay church for the funeral service before then being transferred to Uhuru stadium where leaders will bid the body farewell.
“Mipango ya mazishi ni kwamba March 20,2021, mwili wa Hayati Dkt. Magufuli utatolewa Hospitali ya Jeshi Lugalo na kupelekwa Kanisa la ST.Peter’s Oysterbay kwa Ibada na baadaye utapelekwa Uwanja wa Uhuru kwa kuagwa na Viongozi” said President Samia.
It is not yet clear if the masses will be allowed to the burial considering that now the country has to be alert more on dealing with the Coronavirus which has now proved to be a real threat all over the world.
