    1. Huh?

      Sure sounds like it! How weird that someone who refused to do anything to address a deadly pandemic seems to have died from the disease he did nothing to avoid.

  1. Huh?

    He knows Ghana’s former president, Jerry John Rawlings, has died from the virus. So too has former Congo-Brazzaville president Jacques Joaquim Yhombi-Opango. Last month four Zimbabwe cabinet ministers, including Sibusiso Moyo, the army general turned foreign minister who helped oust Robert Mugabe, died of Covid. In Malawi, four government officials, including two cabinet ministers, succumbed.

    In Eswatini (formerly Swaziland), the prime minister, Ambrose Dlamini, fell to the virus. Sudan’s last democratically elected prime minister, Sadiq al-Mahdi, has died, as has Libya’s former prime minister, Mahmoud Jibril, and Somalia’s former prime minister, Nur Hassan Hussein. In Burundi, Tanzania’s neighbour, two former presidents – Pierre Nkurunziza and Pierre Buyoya – have died from Covid-19.

    Dying from Covid is preventing Magufuli from criticising the official narrative and curtailing his ability to ‘just ask questions’

    are they going to insist he’s still alive, leading to a hilarious “Weekend at Bernie’s” style adventure?
