The world woke up to the news this morning that Tanzanian president John Pombe Magufuli has passed on. The man whose political approach could best be described as, “Take no prisoners” was arguably Tanzania’s most controversial president ever.
Other than that, the late president has behind a beautiful wife called Janeth Magufuli with whom they had three kids.
Very little was known about Magufuli’s marriage life although it is clear that his wife, Janeth was a teacher at Mbuyuni Primary School located in Dar es Salaam. Former First Lady Salma Kikwete also used to teach at the same Primary school.
Janeth had been serving as the country’s First Lady since November 2015. Most of the information known about Janeth is based on her extensive teaching career.
Some of those facts are below;
