President John Magufuli of Tanzania, a prominent populist and covid-19 skeptic in Africa, has died. He was 61 years old.
Magufuli’s death was announced on Wednesday by Vice President Samia Suluhu, who said the president died of heart failure
Tanzania’s president has been a thorn in the side of the COVID fanatics since early on. He has continually denied the threat and embarrassed the cult with his shenanigans.
Magufuli famously tested some random fruits and animals with the PCR tests:
They had randomly obtained several non-human samples, including from a pawpaw, a goat and a sheep, but had assigned them human names and ages.
These samples were then submitted to Tanzania’s laboratory to test for the coronavirus, with the lab technicians left deliberately unaware of their origins.
Samples from the pawpaw and the goat tested positive for COVID-19, the president said, adding this meant it was likely that some people were being tested positive when, in fact, they were not infected by the coronavirus.
“There is something happening. I said before we should not accept that every aid is meant to be good for this nation,” Magufuli said, adding the kits should be investigated. Al jazeera
He encouraged the people of his nation to go out and continue their lives as normal, and so they did. The Following video was filmed at Kendwa Rocks Hotel in Kendwa, Zanzibar, Tanzania on December 31, 2020-January 1, 2021:
Magufuli has warned his people that the COVID-19 vaccines are dangerous:
“The ministry of health should be careful, they should not hurry to try these vaccines without doing research, not every vaccine is important to us, we should be careful. We should not be used as ‘guinea pigs’,” – malawi24.com
All in in all, Magufuli has been a pain in the ass to those pushing the pandemic narrative, while in many ways he has been a beacon of hope for others.
So, does it come as any surprise that now Magufuli has died of a heart attack at the relatively young age of 61?
The president was last seen in public on 27th February, but after two weeks of no sight of the president it was announced Magufuli had died, of a heart attack.
The mainstream press here in the west has speculated that his death was COVID-19 related, though not a single thread of evidence supports such claims.
Publications such as The Guardian headed the news like this:
Tanzania’s Covid-denying president, John Magufuli, dies aged 61 – The Guardian
The New York Times had this headline:
We’ve seen this time and time again, ‘COVID-denier dies…..’, as if the two things may have some connection. And indeed a connection is exactly what these headlines and narratives are intended to make in the minds of the unsuspecting majority.
Magufuli’s death is very convenient, very timely, and very strange. At 61 and of healthy weight, his risk from a heart attack seems small. But of course he may have had underlying health conditions, we can only speculate at this point.
It will be interesting to know more surrounding the nature of his death.
