Mr Lembris was giving his speech during the passing of a financial bill for the year 2021 /2022 today in parliament situated in Dodoma.

“I want to caution those who think they will live forever, that all souls shall taste death. You will not betray Magufuli's legacy that he left behind but it will remain forever,” he said as quoted by Mwananchi, a Tanzanian publication.

He added that the current Head of State, President Samia Suluhu Hassan, was honest and competent in her dealings and that's why God rewarded her with the top post in the country.

The vocal politician also cautioned social media users who have been defaming Magufuli saying the same fate will befall them.
