We Should Tame Tanzania Before She Tames Us With COVID-19

Tanzania President John Pombe Magufuli

Coronavirus has continued to sweep across the African continent. Although some have continued to argue that the continent has “been spared”, the truth is, it is just getting started.

The total number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Africa stands at 41,446 with South Africa leading with 5,951 cases followed by Egypt with 5,895 cases.

South Africa is among the few African countries that has rolled out mass testing of her citizens hence the high number of confirmed cases compared to her peers.

The numbers are also rising daily in the East African region. Currently, Somalia is leading with 601 confirmed cases followed by Tanzania with 480 cases. Sudan and Kenya have 442 and 411 confirmed cases respectively.

Although Somalia seems to be ahead of others in East Africa in terms of infections, what East Africa should worry more is not Somalia but Tanzania (John Pombe Magufuli to be specific).

Videos have emerged of Tanzanians dropping dead on the streets and in their houses as a result of Coronavirus with the handling of their bodies done in total disregard of the surrounding families (communities).

To make matters worse, President John Pombe Magufuli of Tanzania is busy brainwashing Tanzanians (who are following him en masse and blindly) that Covid-19 is only infecting those with “little faith.”

As other countries move to contain the virus, including enforcing lockdowns and curfews, as well as suspending social gatherings such as churches, Magufuli has remained adamant, calling on Tanzanians to move on as usual with churches still operational.

According to Magufuli, only prayers wi defeat Covid-19 because it is “from the devil” and that the “devil cannot survive in the body of Christ.” Magufuli (who by the way carries the title Dr.) has become a religiously notorious individual who is not only endangering Tanzanians but the region as a whole.

Magufuli is playing a popularity contest with Covid-19 and we all should not who is going to win. Not Magufuli. It is time for Tanzanians to stock thinking like a mob and reflect on their lives as individuals. It is time for Tanzanians to stop depending on Magufuli for reasoning because it is obvious that he is leading to to the graveyard.

Other East African countries should isolate Tanzania and force Magufuli to put his house in order. If he refuses to see sense and handle Covid-19 as it is, the Covid-19 will force him to.

If God wanted to protect the world against Covid-19, he wouldn’t have allowed it to come in the first place. He allowed it to come so that we can use our brain to fight it. Allowing churches to pray and shouting on top of their voices is not going to help. That is the truth.

We should take Tanzania before she takes us with Covid-19.
