Magufuli Takes His Wife to Public Hospital,Shames Kenyan leaders
The Tanzanian State House on Thursday posted photos of the country’s President John Magufuli visiting his wife who is admitted at a public hospital sparking, an online debate that has even made its way to international media.
The Kenyan online fraternity could not be left behind and as usual, they took their time to add a voice into the juicy conversation where they compared Magufuli’s action to our own leaders.
Kenyans were particularly surprised that a Head of State could take his wife to a public hospital, given the behaviour by local leaders who always rush to foreign countries to seek medication.
The Tanzanian First Lady, Janet Magufuli, was receiving treatment at Muhimbili National Hospital – an equivalent of Kenyatta National Hospital in Kenya.
In the photos which have since gone viral, Magufuli is seen visiting his wife and other patients at the medical facility.
Many could not even picture a Kenyan politician seeking treatment from a public hospital.
Others complained how local leaders are experts in having medical facilities named after them, yet they cannot even trust the same facilities when they fall sick but will always resort to flying abroad for ‘specialised’ treatment.
