Tanzania’s President John Magufuli Dies Aged 61


DODOMA (Somaliguardian) – Tanzania’s president John Magufuli, Africa’s most prominent coronavirus skeptic, has died at the age of 61, the country’s vice president Samia Suluhu Hassan said on Wednesday.

His death has been confirmed after a more than two-week absence from public life that triggered speculations about his health.

Tanzanian Vice President said he died from the heart disease that had plagued him for a decade and announced 14 days of national mourning and the flying of flags at half staff as burial arrangements were also underway.
