Headline: AFRICA/TANZANIA – Missionaries: gratitude but also fear of the President re-elected last week
Dar es Salaam – Gratitude, but also fear. These are the reactions of the missionaries when they talk about the new Tanzanian President John Magufuli, who took office for a second term last week. “In the first mandate”, missionaries who want to remain anonymous, told Fides, “the president stood out for his commitment to building infrastructures. Thanks to the help of China, a historic ally of Tanzania, roads and railways were built, internal and international connections have improved. There is no comparison with the past”.
