Tanzania’s President John Magufuli is reportedly in India for further treatment for Covid-19, the country’s main opposition leader has said.

John Magufuli this week was said to be on admission at a Kenyan hospital undergoing medical treatment for Covid-19.

Opposition leader Tundu Lissu who said Magufuli had coronavirus and a cardiac arrest has also revealed that the Tanzanian leader has now been flown from Kenya to India.

He insisted that Mr. Magufuli is in a serious condition due to the Covid-19, a disease the president has denied existed.

Tundu Lissu lost last year’s presidential election to President Magufuli and has been on a campaign for the government to come public on the whereabouts of the President.

Without giving any evidence, Lissu wrote on Twitter that “Latest update from Nairobi: The Man Who Declared Victory Over Corona “was transferred to India this afternoon.”

Kenyans don’t want the embarrassment “if the worst happens in Kenya.” His COVID denialism in tatters, his prayer-over-science folly has turned into a deadly boomerang!”

Covid-19 denial

The 61-year-old president of Tanzania has refused to accept the fact that Covid-19 is real and deadly, in order to protect his citizens.

Instead of following science, he didn’t encourage the adherence to safety protocols, urging people to pray and consider the virus devilish.

A top presidential aide of Mr Magufuli died hours after the vice-president of the country’s semi-autonomous islands of Zanzibar died from Covid-19.

Last year, President Magufuli declared his country “coronavirus-free” saying the success was due to prayers by citizens.

He told worshippers in a church that “The corona disease has been eliminated thanks to God.”

President John Magufuli warned health officials in his country against acquiring coronavirus vaccines.

Magufuli had said that the vaccines could harm the population, but he didn’t provide any evidence to back that claim.
