President John Pombe Magufuli has spoken ag an event in Tanzania, ending speculation about his health.
Reports on Sunday morning indicated that Magufuli had suffered a heart attack before being evacuated to Germany.
The unsubstantiated claims were circulated on social media platforms, with Tanzanians seeking clarity from the presidency about Magufuli’s health.
The Tanzanian government did not respond to the rumours.
However, Magufuli later presided over the inauguration of recently-appointed state officials.
In a televised address, Magufuli urged the new officials to serve with diligence so as to transform the country.
The President also called for selflessness, saying the people of Tanzania expected better service delivery.
Magufuli has since won praise across Africa for his tough stance against corruption and breathing new life into mega infrastructural projects in Tanzania.
