 Apart from the fact that he came to power with alot of strictness, many have seen the wrath of Pombe. Here are the most unbelievable things the Tanzanian president has shocked many with;

He Warned Socialites

You must be wondering why a whole President would concern himself with socialites, right? Well, Magufuli’s government put a warning to socialites who sell their bodies on social media. I mean those that post nudes on the gram. It seems the warning has since fell to deaf ears!

Banned Mini-Skirts

With all the drama that came with this new President, of course people had to fake some things. Well, Magufuli was rumoured to have banned mini skirts in Tanzania. According to the ministry of affairs, he had only banned it in a certain region to curb HIV/AIDS. The people in that place must have been notorious for a prezzo to take such a step. Well, Zari Hassan and many must have rejoiced to continue rocking their dressing when this rumour was debunked.


Arresting A Rapper

Magufuli’s government recently arrested rapper Nay Wa Mitego also known as Nay Trueboy saying that he released a song that was insulting the president. After days behind bars, Pombe ordered his release and claimed that he loved the song. That’s quite confusing, right? The rapper who is set to release a video for the song might be reconsidering removing what he said about Magufuli in the song wapo.

Kwa sababu madhara ya dawa za kulevya kwa taifa letu yamefikia mahali pabaya. Haiwezekani kuwa watu wanauza kama njugu”
