Born John Pombe Magufuli, on 29th October 1959 in Geita Tanzania, dies at 61.
He served as Minister for works, Transport and Communications from 2000 to 2005 and 2010 to 2015 before vying for presidency in 2015 and winning the race on a CCM ticket.
He was known to be a no-nonsense kind of leader, hated wastefulness and after winning the presidency he saved the country $ 429.5 Billion on the ban on public servant’s foreign travel between November 2015 and November 2016.
His work at the Ministry of Works earned him the name Bulldozer, sadly he succumbs to a heart condition that he has battled for over 10 years, as reported by TBC.
Death is about leaving a legacy that outlives you, it’s about the Immortality of your actions
God gave and God has taken, Fare thee well
