  2. Let Him Be An Example To All Leaders In Africa I Like The Man He Is A Real Humble Man Through His Works

    • Useless report – what are the details of his leadership impact on the lives of the people and overall national economic impact? Just flying economy, riding bicycles to work or cancelling national events is not enough to move a national economy.

      • Why are you so angry? The man has a vision for his country, he knows what he wants and he is trying to correct things. We can not compare him to our president.

  3. He leads by example. But on the contrary can Edgar cancel independence day celebrations like Magufuli did? Can Edgar scrap siting allowances for all meetings, can Edgar scrap the importation of luxury 4X4 land cruisers for his ministers and tell them to use Toyota corolla’s? Sure Magufuli is the best of them all

  8. Mungu Akubariki Papa Magufuli. You have really shown the how leadership should be. Not aba benangu fwayizo but kanizo. Mu church balila but kumbali at I will make sure that I punish them because abena Zambia nabadelela sana. Malabishi ya President.

  9. Dr. Magufuli, I commend you for the feat age mate and fellow catholic but be more tolerant of criticism and media.not You can learn more from your critics than your friends. Be wary of the praise singers around you,they are the worst enemies and do not surround yourself with yes men.You should not let your success so far get to your head. Please continue to use Mwalimu’s selfless leadership and loathe for materialism. We have thieves, corrupt leaders and some who pretend to be christians in Africa and you are a shining light. You are a proper Catholic Christian and you practice your faith. Also, do not overstay, please as Museveni has done and thereby lost credibility . Nobody is indispensable.

  10. A great leader looks at de interests of his citizens economically en politically – not the one who danced wen intoxicated in NEW York.

  11. He is also part of the team inspired by the leadership of Mwalimu Julius Nyerere. Let Tanzania continue to prosper under his wise leadership. It is a pity that those that took over from Kaunda have set a bad example of plundering the economy. I pray the they sit at the hottest spot in hell. What is wrong with the set up of the country called Zambia because for sure ECL should be one of worst heads of state.

  12. Even in Zambia we have a Magufuli type of personalities, but people opt to vote for their own tunkunkubiti on tribal lines at the expense of National development. HH is just that kind of a world class president who can equally make a world economical name in leadership. As those who worked with him, they will tell you the man is even more tough than magufuli.Anyway congrats Tanzanians for your wise decisions in voting otherwise, magufuli would not have won an election in Zambia and if he could, then they would have rigged to block him.

  22. Yes indeed we have the Magufulis in our midst right here in Zambia but because of greed and selfishness we decide to continue going the wrong way.The trouble is that even the messages being preached in Churches within zambia today have no spiritual gravity to transform and radiate the sinful and corrupt masses.Money focus and immorality has become the order of the day. Our prayer is that please God give us our own MAGUFULI in this very troubled and harsh times!

  23. JOHN MAGUFULI – “This is a public service not a gravy train. Anybody who came here to make riches should quit and join the private sector. All ministers and senior state house officials are here to work not to seek obscene opulence. I don’t want to see them drive those big cars (4X4s), if anyone insists, please let them go buy their own cars, we (the government) shall fuel for them,” he said. And Magufuli added: “To build this country like I promised during campaigns, we must make sacrifices and that includes sacrificing those unnecessary comforts for the small cars. I have ordered the police to impound any such big cars driven by state officials on the road and those officials be prosecuted. We are not here to rob the average Tanzanian but to make his life better. This is the reason I skipped the AU heads of state meeting in Addis and sent Mama Suluhu (Deputy President).” Whereas other presidents travelled to the AU summit, Tanzania was represented by the deputy president.

  27. We (in Tanzania) thank God to have a President in Magufuli. Yesterday was a full year since he became President and what he has accomplished is amazing and this is only one year, we cant comprehend what he will do in the remaining 4 years of his first term. Revenue collection has increased, government spending reduced, economic growth at 7% is the second in Africa after Cote d’voire, people are no longer being asked bribes in government offices, free primary and secondary education and the list is long. We pray for him and give him the utmost of our support. I am fortunate to be Tanzanian
