Tanzania Lays Magufuli To Rest

The state burial of Tanzania’s former President John Magufuli is underway in his north-western home village of Chato.

Mr Magufuli died last Wednesday after a mysterious absence of almost three weeks.

The Tanzanian authorities say Mr Magufuli – one of Africa’s most prominent coronavirus sceptics – died from heart failure.

His state funeral was held in the capital, Dodoma, on Tuesday.
