Woman and kids die as Tanzania president goes home
It has been reported that a lady and four kids have died during the funeral of the dead Tanzania leader. The death of these five people was due to a stampede. Other reports in the media have said that the fatalities are as high as 36, however, there haven't been any changes in confirmation. Millions of people have shown up at the Dar es Salam stadium to get a last look at the body of their ex-president.
Mr. Magufuli was named bulldozer because he was seen as a strict and no-nonsense leader whose style of governance was hard and tough. Many have labeled him a dictator and an autocrat. Mr. Magufuli is known to downplay the potency of coronavirus and says numbers are just figures not proven.
Opposition leaders say he was killed by the coronavirus
Critics and opposition leaders say his demise was linked to a covid-19 virus, however, they haven't proved it. Dennis Mtwuwa and a family of about five were killed on Sunday's burial. The husband issued a statement where he stated '' This is a sad day for me and the entire country, I have lost my wife and some members of my family, and I don't know what to expect next. '' Dar es Salam police chief Lazaro Mambosasa promises to give reporters more details later.
