    The man died, and everyone will die one day. But they should not tagg it to Covid 19. Before the so call Covid19 came people are dying. Why is Any death is now Covid 19, I hate this type of manipulation.

      Please stop being so listening to Trump, i know he lives in your head constantly. Patients that go back to their residency are treated as covid patients,( away from general population) but once they come back negative 2xs they are. Taken off the list as covid.

    • Check Dr Ian Ndlovu on You Tube about this man..
      He has a before prophecy (last year), and a recent after death word about Magufuly.

    • The man got killed Him Marley style killing.

    Is that the only the CNN knew Magufuli, very deficit viewpoint. Everyone is destined to death.
    Magufuli achieved alot for TZ

    • It would be interesting to see what they will say and write about Israel’s medical apartheid and gross human rights violations when Benjamin Natanieu dies.

    why u ask kenyans

    • @AdriaFuraha Matemu I understand why the question of why ask kenyans comes in. Coz its the president of tanzania who passed away and so they should talk to Tanzanians. But saying kenyans know nothing of Tanzanians is bull crap! There are so many tanzanians living and working in kenya. Plus every day there are thousands coming in and out of kenya.

      @Ra sorry if you are pissed off, being in and out of a certain country does nt mean you can be aware of evrything going on in tht country. People knw their history and other stuffs are sensitive my dear…umesahau kua siri ya mtungi aijuaye kata na kitanda usicholalia haujui kunguni wake eeehhh…..

    • @AdriaFuraha Matemu The fact that Kenyans and Tanzanians intermingle so much means they know a lot about each other. Not everything. But a lot. You said Kenyans don’t know anything about Tanzanians. Which is wrong. In fact is there any other group that mingles with Tanzanians more than Kenyans? If you say Kenyans don’t know you then no one will ever know you.

    • I wonder too

  6. The African hero and the man of our proud mother land(mama Africa)
    You were just a great person on this earth we loved you.

      Kaikai! You seem to know too much about TANZANIA. But avoid being ethnocentric! Don’t speak for TANZANIANS. I was expecting the CNN reporter contact someone who could provide reliable nformation, not KAIKAI whose information is full of speculations.

    • @Richard Kasuga Am speaking on the behalf of the Africans who loved him. Look at him now sleeping forever who are the people now suffering “The ordinary Mwananchi”
      We can without white people we don’t have to borrow money from white people you get my point?

      Being a big media organisation,you should have come to the country and get pure and genuine information unlikely this half baked news that you’re giving the world..people who are keen followers of this organization believe and don’t know much about Tanzania,actually believe these lies that kaikai and the white guy whose in Joberg, both of whom are outsiders,why didn’t you come for yourselves on ground to witness how people are fainting and tearing profusely at the reality of his death,and then report to the world

    • He said the right.
      No covid 19
      He was killed by poison.
      What he said was right.
      Stop lying the people

  7. For those who talks about how prayer doesn’t work, the better question is “when has prayer ever hurt”?

    • He said used African medicine and help people’s
      He did what is supposed to do protect he’s people
      Those local medicine works for them
      We don’t want the Western told us he was this and that all crap and lied and propaganda
      Look in back day about Mandela, Malcolm x , Martini Luther King and other
      Magufuli he’s in our modern life who said NO for western country including USA and CHINA
      He’s true Nationalist And PanAfricanist
      He’s true leader and he’s true African King
      Rest In Peace ✌️ Rest in power my Hero my king my president “Legacy live forever never die “
      We will remember forever

      @C. Dima I don’t really understand why would other people,, “Strangers” from other countries who are not Tanzanians, have never been in Tanzania and they just hear about Tanzania and Magufuli only on social medias try to say that Our president didn’t care about us, while we, the Tanzanians are still admitting that he cared and valued about us.

      If it’s about Corona, we were fine with his decisions,,if it’s about gay thing we are fine,,we have never complained about getting or wanting either of them. We and our president have agreed to all these things. So, stop talking the facts that you know nothing about.

      @t I am Tanzanian. Only Tanzanians can understand him. The media is brainwashing.

    • @t there are tina of latest video about Tanzania on YouTube.
      To mention few, he fired 20k corrupted public servant and many ministries. He took control of the port where the former president gave it to China gor 100 years, he rejected the evil Western agenda LBGT, he exposed the pandemic by stopping the Covid infected testing kits…….

    • @DAN GMT china still has the port for 30 yrs and also the train . I still don’t see what poor people benefit from. Maybe you loved his ideology, but don’t say he helped poor. Providing decent healthcare and education would be helpful.

  9. Magufuli will remain to be one of the most loved and greatly respected leaders of Africa. No matter what you say, Magufuli was a great man of faith, a hero.

    • @Marry Gicho that god of yours doesn’t exist, you will go to hell like everybody else.

    • @neil nelson my GOD exists I believe in him as he wants us to. I also believe he sent his only son JESUS to die for our sins including you dear. Believe in him and you will never regret it. Good day.

    • Tunawajua nyie wazungu hamjawahi kuwawazia mema Waafrika , hivi mnatuonaje kwanza? Yaani nyie mabaya yote mnayotenda kwa Afrika mtalipwa hapa hapa duniani, hata kwa vitukuu vyenu.Kama hauelewi nilichoandika katafute dictionary.

    Dr. Magufuli had a heart condition from way back. And prayer did work for us, visit 🇹🇿 Tanzania and see how safe it is. He also urged us to take precautions.
