Bobi Wine in an entourage of other NUP members, signed in the condolence book expressing his grief for the fallen Tanzania President.
In his speech, Bobi Wine said that President Magufuli loved his country and people whilst being imperfect.
He also noted that President Magufuli’s works were phenomenal within a small period in power.
Read Bobi Wine’s statement in full;
We went to the High Commission of the United Republic of Tanzania in Uganda where we signed the condolence book for the late President John Pombe Magufuli. President Magufuli was not perfect, but he loved his country and his people. In only six years, he turned the fortunes of his people around and proved that one does not need to be in power for 30 or 40 years to develop a nation.
We celebrate the fact that in the face of this incredible tragedy, Tanzania has kept to its tradition of peaceful transfer of power from one leader to another.
We hope that the new leadership of Tanzania will continue where President Magufuli stopped in terms of the development agenda, but also work hard to improve the enjoyment of rights and freedoms, especially for the opposition.
May his soul rest in peace.
