Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli is Dead

61-year-old leader John Pombe Mgufuli has died of heart failure, after weeks of speculation he was infected with COVID-19.

In a televised address to the nation late on Wednesday evening, Vice President Samia Suluhu Hassan said the 61-year-old president had died of a “heart condition”, which he had suffered for a decade, at a hospital in Dar-Es-Salaam.

Magufuli had first been briefly admitted to the Jakaya Kikwete Cardiac Institute on March 6, but was subsequently discharged, Hassan said on state television. But he was rushed to hospital again on March 14 after feeling unwell.
