Tanzania’s President John Magufuli has termed the Covid-19 pandemic as a “test from God” and called for three days of prayers and fasting to overcome it.

He said we won against the virus last year and we will against it this year.

President Magufuli made the comments on Friday at the funeral of his chief secretary, John Kijazi, who died of an undisclosed illness while undergoing treatment.


The vice-president of Tanzania’s semi-autonomous islands of Zanzibar, Seif Sharif Hamad, died on Wednesday – nearly three weeks after his party said he had contracted Covid-19.

He was the most prominent political figure in Tanzania to have openly declared that he had Covid-19.

The government has not published data on coronavirus for months.
