Key Tanzanian opposition leaders are willing to bank on President Samia Suluhu Hassan to deliver political and constitutional reforms, heralding ... a new democratic dispensation. However, the powerful intelligence services, which had been a 'private army' for former president John Magufuli, stand in her way, as well as her own political party.
Unconfirmed reports continue to circulate in Tanzania that the President – known for his fierce denial of Covid – was receiving treatment in Kenya at Nairobi Hospital and has now been transferred to a facility in India after suffering cardiac arrest and testing positive for Covid-19.
This confirms our earlier report yesterday!Now it is settled candidly that Pres Magufuli is;
👉🏻transfered to India for more treatment
👉🏻flown out of Kenya while in comatose and in ventilator
👉🏻admitted under secret code OB1- obstacle number1https://t.co/AI5mw1JC3d

Accountable to the public
The president is a public servant, and he is accountable to the public. They must tell us if he is on holiday. And if he is sick, they should tell us. All information about the president’s health should be public.
