Tanzania’s President John Pombe Magufuli has declared the country ‘Corona virus-free”’.
While addressing teachers, Magufuli said it is the prayers by its citizens that made the country win the fight against the virus that has taken the world by storm killing hundreds of thousands. He said no more masks, no more social distancing but trust in God.
He took to those leaders including the speaker of wearing face mask even when he seats alone in his chambers. He said people will talk but life must continue.
This has elicited mixed reactions in social media. Joshua Njenga in his twitter account said Magufuli has launched mass suicide.
Kajiado County has since recorded rise in Covid-19 infections mainly at the border of Kenya-Tanzania and now the challenge is on the County Government to secure its residents.
