How Tanzania President John Magufuli Died || Tanzania President John Magufuli has died. He was 61.
The sad news of his untimely passing was announced this evening by the country’s Vice President Samia Suluhu. According to the Vice President, Magufuli succumbed to heart disease in a Dar Es Salaam Hospital this evening.
Magufuli served as the fifth President of Tanzania after taking office in 2015. Nicknamed ‘The Bulldozer’ Magufuli imposed a raft of measures during his presidency that reduced corruption and government spending in Tanzania.
Most notable was barring unnecessary foreign travel by government officials, using cheaper vehicles and suspending national events in favour of using the funds in more critical areas. In 2015 the late President called off the nation’s Independence celebrations instead channelling the funds to a cleanup campaign to curb the spread of cholera.
