Earlier this week, the Nation media platform had spread some news that the president of the republic of Tanzania had some health problems. John Pombe Maghufuli went missing on social media for quite sometime, where even Tundu Lisu had to make some remarks about his health. Now one of the citizens of Tanzania, through a facebook live stream channel known as " The Kenya We Want" warned some people who had published some news about Maghufuli having contracted covid-19.
"Kwa Sababu Wakati Mwingine nchi hutakiwa kuendeshwa na udikteta mwingi Sana. Wewe usipoamka asubuhi, unaleta taharuki tu. Mimi naongea kama mtu binafsi sijatumwa na mtu yeyote, lakini kinacho nisikitisha Sana ni hizi vyombo bus habari hasa Nation. Nation ni kampuni kubwa Sana inayomilikiwa na Aghakhan na ni mtu mwenye heshima zake kote ulimwemguni. Hao nation ndo wanamiliki magazet ya Nation na Wana Tv yao pale Kenya. Kenya ni kampuni ya pili katika uwekezaji Tanzania kuna makampuni makubwa Sana. Hivi sasa tukiandamana zote Tanzania na tuseme hatutaki kampuni yoyote ya mkenya watakua salama kweli. Watanzania kama mnavyojua wanaendelea na shughuli zao za kawaida. Hicho kinawauma baadhi ya wakenya sio wote. Wameweka lockdown rais wetu hajaeka lockdown," Said one of the residents.
The government of Tanzania has not yet responded, but people had many reactions towards the ongoing scandle. Many claimed that they love president Maghufuli here in Kenya, and they were praying for him as they didn't know where he was. His vice president assured citizens that their president is still in the hospital working, and his health status is still good. He had just undergone chest test which was termed as normal to every other human being.
