The New President of Tanzania Wins Hearts of Tanzanians and Africans
The 11th of February marked 100 days since John Pombe Magufuli was sworn in as the 5th President of Tanzania. So far, most Tanzanians feel satisfied with his performance. A survey commissioned by Mwananchi Communications Ltd (MCL) shows that an overwhelming majority of Tanzanians have given the thumbs up to their President. About 90% of the respondents said they were satisfied with how President Magufuli is managing the government. Whichever way one looks at it, Tanzania’s new President is currently the man of the moment. His words and actions, from the day he was sworn in to succeed the former President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, have impressed many people. He has taken into office with gusto, and has lived the spirit of his campaign in a true fashion. Having emerged victorious from the bruising battle with a bolstered opposition, the President has demonstrated that he is keen to deliver on his promises. Since being sworn in as Tanzania’s president on November 5, John Magufuli has been cracking down on corruption and wasteful spending, which are problems that continue to plague many African nations.
