‘I Have Been Vindicated’: Mutodi


By Staff Reporter

Outspoken former Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services deputy minister Energy Mutodi said he was right when he suggested measures adopted by the Tanzania’s president, John Magufuli were inferior.

Mutodi was fired from President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s Government with the then late Foreign Affairs Minister Sibusiso Moyo issuing a statement distancing government from his undiplomatic utterances.

“The Lord Almighty has vindicated His servant in the death of Tanzanian President John Pombe Magafuli,”

Mutodi tweeted sooner after the death the Tanzanian president.

“Where there was rejection and rebuke, He has provided reparation.

Before his utterances, Mutodi had tweeted, “His Excellency John Pombe Magufuli’s Tanzania now has 630 COVID-19 cases with prayers, but without a lockdown, while His Excellency President ED Mnangagwa’s Zimbabwe only got 31 cases with a lockdown and masks.”

“An insight into how managers can be gamechangers.”

Magufuli died on Wednesday night.

His vice president Samia Sululu announced his death.

Magufuli cast doubt on the global urge to develop Covid-19 vaccine claiming that little had been done to help cure other diseases like tuberculosis, HIV-Aids and malaria.
