John Magufuli was one of a few leaders at the beginning of this so called pandemic that was out spoken and critical of the pandemic and had his office submit five unlabelled samples for testing – goat, motor oil, papaya, quail and jackfruit – and when four came back positive and one “inconclusive”, he banned the testing kits and called for an investigation into their origin and manufacture. The former professor of chemistry alerted the world to the inaccuracy of the RT-PCR test.
Last week Kit Knightly/ OffGuardian ran a story called “Tanzania – The second Covid coup?” were by they detail his possible demise and the reasons why?
Below is a section of there story. You can read the full article in the link above.
Just last month, The Guardian, always the tip of the spear when it comes to “progressive” regime change ran an article headlined:
It’s time for Africa to rein in Tanzania’s anti-vaxxer president
The article makes no mention of goats, papaya and motor oil testing positive for the coronavirus, but does ask – in a very non-partisan, journalistic way:
What is wrong with President John Magufuli? Many people in and outside Tanzania are asking this question.”
Before going on to conclude:
Magufuli [is] fuelling anti-vaxxers as the pandemic and its new variants continue to play out. He needs to be challenged openly and directly. To look on indifferently exposes millions of people in Tanzania and across Africa’s great lakes region – as well as communities across the world – to this deadly and devastating virus.
The author doesn’t say exactly how Magufuli should be “challenged openly and directly”, but that’s not what these articles are for. They exist simply to paint the subject as a villain, and create a climate where “something must be done”. What that “something” is – and, indeed, whether or not it is legal – are none of the Guardian-reading public’s business, and most of them don’t really care.
Oh, by the by, the article is part of the Guardian’s “Global Development” section, which is sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Just so you know.
So, within two weeks of The Guardian publishing a Gates-sponsored article calling for something to be done about President Magufuli, he has disappeared, allegedly due to Covid. Funny how that works out.
Even if Magufuli miraculously survives his bout of “suspected Covid19”, the writing is on the wall for his political career. The Council on Foreign Relations published this article just yesterday, which goes to great lengths arguing that the President has lost all authority, and concludes:
a bold figure within the ruling party could capitalize on the current episode to begin to reverse course.”
It’s not hard to read the subtext there, if you can even call it “subtext” at all.
If we are about to see the sudden death and/or replacement of the President of Tanzania, he will not be the first African head of state to suffer such a fate in the age of Covid.
Last summer Pierre Nkurunziza, the President of Burundi, refused to play along with Covid and instructed the WHO delegation to leave his country…before dying suddenly of a “heart attack” or “suspected Covid19”. His successor immediately reversed every single one of his Covid policies, including inviting the WHO back to the country.
That was our first Covid coup, and it looks like Tanzania could well be next.
If I were the President of Turkmenistan or Belarus, I wouldn’t be making any longterm plans.
Kit Knightly makes a strong case of the possibility of foul play and we will be watching closely as this story develops. Currently it is being reported the he has died from a heart attack.
We would like to send our condolences to the people of Tanzania and to thank John Magufuli for being out spoken and exposing the RT-PCR test at a critical time.
