Samia Suluhu Hassan Sworn In As Sixth President Of Tanzania

The United Republic of Tanzania has just handed East Africa its first female president after Samia Suluhu Hassan took oath as the sixth president of the nation.

Wearing a red hijab, Samia Suluhu Hassan made history in an event that was witnessed by two former presidents.

She will now lead 58 million Tanzanians beaten by a pandemic that has left havoc in its wake killing thousands and wearing out the nation's healthcare system.

The 61 year old inspected a military parade and received a cannon salute from men in uniform she will command for the next five years, and possibly beyond.

Samia Suluhu Hassan takes over after the death of John Pombe Magufuli, a bulldozer who sought to end corruption in government and put his people first before being clipped by a virus he handled in a different way from other heads of state.

Many are eager to see what path the president from Zanzibar will take in her tackling of corona virus. Her predecessor had vowed not to procure vaccines until local experts had deemed the vaccines safe for Tanzanians.
