A video has surfaced showing the body of the late President John Pombe Magufuli transported for State custody.
As usual in Tanzania, bodies of very Important State officials must be kept under the custody of the State surrounded by the military; anytime a VIP loses life.
In the video now received on our News Desk, hundreds of Tanzanian nationals can be seen some sobbing while others wailing as the president’s convoy speeds off with the body.
Magufuli, who was confirmed dead by his Vice President Samia Suluhu on Wednesday, was hospitalized a few weeks ago when he developed breathing complications. His VP however, linked his death to Heart failure. The jury is still out!
He died while undergoing special treatment at the Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete Cardiac Hospital in Dar Es Salaam.
