Hon Samia Suluhu Hassan to be sworn in as Tanzania’s President

A first in Tanzania and East Africa, Vice President Hon. Samia Suluhu Hassan will become Tanzania’s First Female President (under Tanzania’s constitution)  following the sudden death of President John Pombe Magufuli who died on Wednesday 17th March 2021.

 She will be the first woman to be president of Tanzania and the first to hail from Zanzibar, a semi-autonomous region that has had rounds of contested elections in recent years. Whether the ruling party (CCM) that has the great following from the Catholic church will rally behind her remains to be seen. According to analyst, she is not to be estimated and is well capable of uniting the country. She will be a different leader from what Magufuli was our contacts tell us.
