Tanzania’s  President of ruling party Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) John Magufuli

Tanzania’s fifth elected president H.E John Pombe Magufuli was announced dead after several days of speculations about his whereabouts and medical condition.

In a statement released by the Vice-president, Magufuli died on Wednesday evening following a cardiac arrest. Magufuli will be remembered for his contribution towards uniting the bongo music industry.

Following his untimely demise, several stars took to their socials to remember the leader.
