Tanzania’s President John Magufuli declares Tanzania ‘coronavirus free’
Tanzania’s President John Pombe Magufuli has declared Tanzania a ‘coronavirus’ free country.
He said during the swearing in of new Tanzania officials.
“We decided to pray to God to save us from the coronavirus (Covid-19). God has answered our prayers,” he said at the State House in Dodoma during the swearing in of Regional Commissioners, District Commissioners DCs and officials he appointed a few days ago.
The newly appointed officials have since been tasked with marketing Tanzania as a tourism destination while making the world realise that Tanzania is indeed safe for travel.
“Tanzania is safe and this is evident by the many airlines that are bringing tourists,” said President Magufuli.
He said for Tanzania to keep attracting more tourists, every leader at his or her capacity should be an ambassador for the rest of the world to understand that the country is safe.
“The good thing is that, people have started to understand the reality that Tanzania is a safe place,” he said.
