DODOMA-(MaraviPost)-A high-ranking government official in Tanzania has claimed that Dr. John Pombe Magufuli was killed by the Chinese in collaboration with the Western Countries.
Tanzanian President John Maguful stood strong and denied them entry into Tanzania and blocked them from accessing the rich mineral resources in the Country.
The official who spoke to KDRTV News correspondent in Tanzania requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the information who also revealed that they are investigating all the leads and will come with a conclusive report on how their beloved President Dr. John Pombe Magufuli died a man who was very energetic and healthy.
The Government official disclosed very scanty details of the events that led to the President’s condition which deteriorated so fast and worsened day by day until his demise which is still a mystery because the Vice-president who announced the death said that he died on Tuesday evening East African time while online rumors indicated that he died in a Kenyan Hospital in Nairobi.
Former Tanzania Presidential candidate, Mr. Tindu Lissu who run against Dr. Pombe Magufuli, claimed on his social media accounts and on BBC TV show that the President was critically ill and had been flown out of the country for specialized treatment.
President Dr. John Pombe Magufuli directed that all minerals that are extracted in Tanzania must be manufactured in the Country and no raw materials should be exported without prior approval from his officials which made it very difficult for companies from the east or western Countries to access the raw materials and export them to their countries.
In a recent event that shocked many people, he impounded raw materials at the Port of Dar es Salam which were destined for China, and demanded that the firm should manufacture the materials in Tanzania.
This action angered many international firms who threatened to pull out of Tanzania in protest but this did not deter President Magufuli from standing his ground and told them off and if they don’t play along they should keep off Tanzania.
The President blocked some manufactured products from the neighboring countries and directed the Tanzanian Revenue Authority to charge high levies on the products in order to protect the local manufacturers.
President Magufuli barred his Ministers from unnecessary international travels and expenditures. He was also considered an enemy to his neighbors whom he claimed were exploiting Tanzanians and expelled thousands of them from Tanzania claiming that they were occupying jobs the locals can comfortably do.
The Opposition leaders claim that Dr. Magufuli died of Corona Virus (Covid-19) while the Tanzanian Government denies those rumors and have told the Media that he died of a heart complication which he was suffering from for the last 10 years though KDRTV News could not verify this information by the time his demise was announced by the Vice-President on National TV.
President Dr.John Pombe Magufuli has been advocating for Pan-Africanism ideals just like the late Ghanian President Mr. Jerry Rawlings, Thomas Sankara of Burkina Faso, and Patrice Lumumba of the Democratic Republic of Congo formerly renamed Zaire by former Strong man Mobutu Sese Seko who ruled the country for over three decades before he was overthrown by Laurent Kabila in the late 90s.
Dr. Magufuli sacked any Government official accused of corruption on site and become a darling to many Tanzanians who revered him for his open court system and justice. During his short stint at the Presidency, Tanzania has seen tremendous infrastructural development throughout the Country and they nicknamed him the BullDozzer.
He believed that African problems must be solved by the Africans and became a laughing stock from the Western Countries because of how he viewed what he called exploitation as he made very drastic changes to governance structures and his zeal to curb corruption.
Many Tanzanian elites viewed him as a threat to their existence and accused him of high-handedness and extra Judicial killings, some fled the Country and sought refugee status in different countries.
The former Presidential Contender Mr. Tindu Lissu accused him of rigging the 2020 Presidential election in his favor and almost 90 percent of Parliamentarians were elected on Chama Cha Mapinduzi tickets while the Opposition cried foul and called the elections an exercise in futility because of malpractices.
President Magufuli has always accused the West of making the African population poorer and also claimed that the vaccines produced in the west might harm the African population, in the long run, claiming that their intentions were not genuine.
He cautioned Tanzanians against taking the Vaccines a thing which caused him to be at loggerheads with the WHO who accused him of misleading Tanzanians.
WHO accused his government of not releasing Covid-19 data in his Country.
