Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli has now laughed off countries on lockdown and revealed the origin of COVID-19.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic was reported in his country, President Magufuli adopted a strange tactic in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic
As reported by the Star today, Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli has today during a rally in Tanzania made fun of countries that had introduced containment measures such as lockdown to defeat COVID-19.
He revealed that it was unfortunate that some countries had resorted to killing their own citizens who violate the COVID-19 containment measures.
“You have seen elsewhere people have been killed for walking beyond recommended hours. Others walk and work throughout the day with nose and mouth covered, this is really unfortunate,” Magufuli said.
Magufuli also revealed that it was the Devil who had brought COVID-19 to the world and Tanzania was able to defeat him.
He further asserted that he will never introduce a lockdown in Tanzania because God was bigger than the disease.
While other countries had introduced COVID-19 containment measures such as lockdown and curfew, Magufuli ruled out introducing such measures which he felt would hurt his economy.
Many months after his country was declared COVID-19 free, no crucial information on the real situation in the country is being reported an indication that the country is not overwhelmed with COVID-19 as people had speculated.
