Social media is rocked with woes after the Tanzanian vice president announced the death of the Africa’s Charismatic leader John Pombe Magufuli on 17th of March 2021.

“President John Magufuli died of a heart ailment that he has battled for over 10 years,” Samia Suluhu Hassan said.

She added that the president had been receiving treatment at Mzena hospital since Sunday, and announced 14 days of national mourning.

Magufuli died in his capital Dar es Salaam.

His death has shocked many across Africa and left intellectuals with questions. There has not been a man who boldly opposed the western foreign policy on Africa as him. Due to this, a gap in the leadership of Africa is already seen and especially in his country Tanzania.

As of Today, Tanzanians flooded the streets of major cities and towns, mourning his death.

The Embassy of the Republic of South Sudan has conveyed its condolences to the country through a written letter below.
