It is with deep emotion to learn of the death of President John Pombe Magufuli that was officially announced today 17th March 2021.
This is an unprecedented moment for our United Republic of Tanzania, and one that will undoubtedly move us all in very personal ways.
My immediate thoughts are with Mama Janeth and the whole family of our deceased President. On behalf of ACT Wazalendo I extend our heartfelt condolences and support during this time. I further extend our condolences to incoming President Samia Suluhu Hassan for this most difficult loss, and to the deputy chair of CCM for the loss of their National chairperson.
Importantly, I join fellow Tanzanians in this most importune moment for our country, and are one with others in remembering the Presidents life and leadership.
During this difficult time, we look on the incoming President to provide the leadership and unity that we need. We wish her blessings, courage and patience.
My fellow Tanzanians, let us continue to pray for patience and understanding. This is moment to show our maturity and integrity as a nation. We pray for the departed soul of President Magufuli.
