Samia Hassan Suluhu (born 27 January 1960) is a Tanzanian CCM politician and incumbent President of Tanzania. She became Tanzania’s first female Vice-President after she was announced Vice-President of Tanzania in the 2015 General Elections, alongside John Magufuli the President.

Following Magufuli’s death in office she ascended to the Presidency, and became Tanzania’s first female President as well. Before being a vice-president she served as the Member of Parliament for Makunduchi constituency from 2010 to 2015 and has been Minister of State in the Vice-President’s Office for Union Affairs since 2010.

Prior to this, she served as a minister in the semi-autonomous region of Zanzibar in the administration of President Amani Karume. In 2014, she was elected as the Vice Chairperson of the Constituent Assembly tasked with drafting the country’s new constitution.

Suluhu was born in the Sultanate of Zanzibar. After completing her secondary education in 1977, she was employed by the Ministry of Planning and Development as a clerk. She pursued a number of short-courses on a part-time basis. In 1986, she graduated from the Institute of Development Management (present-day Mzumbe University) with an advanced diploma in public administration.

Upon graduation, she was employed on a project funded by the World Food Programme. Between 1992 and 1994, she attended the University of Manchester and graduated with a postgraduate diploma in economics.

In 2015, she obtained her MSc in Community Economic Development via a joint-programme between the Open University of Tanzania and the Southern New Hampshire University.

In 2000, she decided to join politics. She was elected as a special seat member to the Zanzibar House of Representatives and was appointed a minister by President Amani Karume. She was the only high-ranking woman minister in the cabinet and was “looked down on” by her male colleagues because of her gender. She was re-elected in 2005 and was re-appointed as a minister in another portfolio.

In 2010, she sought election to the National Assembly, standing in the parliamentary constituency of Makunduchi and winning by more than 80%. President Jakaya Kikwete appointed her as the Minister of State for Union Affairs. In 2014, she was elected as the Vice Chairperson of the Constituent Assembly tasked with drafting the country’s new constitution.

In July 2015, CCM’s presidential nominee John Magufuli chose her as his running mate for the 2015 election,[7] making her the first female running mate in the party’s history. She subsequently became the first female vice-president in the history of the country upon Magufuli’s victory in the election.

After Magulfi’s death on 17 March 2021, Hassan became the 6th President of Tanzania, and the country’s first female president.

Tanzania—At least 10 people are reported to have been hospitalized in public hospitals upon hearing the death of their favorite leader, John Pombe Magufuli, who died on Wednesday while receiving treatment at Mzena hospital in Dar es Salaam.

The sudden death of the Tanzanian President, John Magufuli, announced in a televised address on Wednesday, sent shock waves across the world and left millions in disbelief.

“Dear Tanzanians, it is sad to announce that today 17 March 2021 around 6 p.m. we lost our brave leader, President John Magufuli who died from heart illness at Mzena hospital in Dar es Salaam where he was getting treatment,” said the incumbent vice president, Samia Suluhu Hassan on state broadcaster TBC.

Since last week, Magufuli had disappeared from the office, sparking rumors that also led to arrest of some bloggers accused by the government of spreading fake news against the president on social media.

Since the World Health Organization declared the Covid-19 virus a global pandemic in 2020, Magufuli had been skeptical about the existence of the disease, and fired some officials for exaggerating Covid-19 figures.

Several African countries, including Kenya, have ordered flags flown at half-mast to honor the late Magufuli.

Magufuli questions Chinese test kits after goat, fruits tested positive

May 4, 2020 (Thessherald)–Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli casts doubt on the effectiveness of the COVID-19 test kits manufactured by China and other developed countries after samples extracted from jackfruit and goats tested positive for the Coronavirus pandemic.

Proving medical experts and researchers wrong, Magufuli secretly sent samples for testing to the National Influenza Laboratory (NIL) in Dar es Salaam. However, the sent samples included those from birds, goats, pawpaw, jackfruit were all positive.

The Tanzanian leader believes that the spikes in the number of cases might have been exaggerated to attract funding from donor countries.

Tanzania officially has 480 confirmed coronavirus infections – the most in East Africa.

And dubiously, Magufuli said, the fruit and bird samples too tested positive for COVID-19. Magufuli said with such a discovery, he now highly doubts the 480 confirmed cases in Tanzania. Magufuli said either the test kits sent to Africa are ‘faulty’ or the officials have deliberately recorded even negative cases as positive.

Faulty COVID-19 testing kits are not a new issue in the coronavirus pandemic after Spain twice sent back defective testing kits back to China after they were found to have very low sensibility.

There are videos circulating on social media showing Tanzanian officials allegedly burying coronavirus victims in the dead of the night in an apparent government coverup. Tanzanian nationals on social media have too questioned the official figures, saying they are way lower than the actual cases and deaths.

The Tanzanian government has been criticised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) for its lax approach to the coronavirus pandemic still allows markets and public transport to operate normally.

Recent confirmed cases in Rwanda and Uganda have been reported mostly from Tanzanian truck drivers plying the East African trade routes. Truck drivers mostly from Tanzania account for 29 of Uganda’s 88 confirmed cases.

Among Uganda’s latest three COVID-19 cases recorded on Saturday, one is of a Tanzanian truck driver while the other was of a Ugandan returnee who sneaked into the country from Tanzania via Bukoba porous border point.

Uganda like Kenya, Rwanda are currently under lockdown and allow no travelling in and out of their countries except for United Nations, emergency and cargo crew.

Magufuli said he’s even considering reopening the national football league that was suspended some weeks back because he has realised that people who engage in sports may not easily be affected by the coronavirus. Magufuli said in any case, he has realised that COVID-19 may have to live with humanity for a long time just like HIV/Aids.

He also announced that he will soon send a plane to Madagascar to fetch the herbal medicine there that is being touted as a ‘cure’ for coronavirus.

Madagascar President Andry Rajoelina asked researchers to come up with a locally made cure for coronavirus. Rajoelina launched the ’cure’ after being tested on about 20 people for three weeks claiming that two people had been completely cured by the COVID-Organics (CVO) treatment.
