Tanzania set to get its first female President after the death of John Pombe Magufuli

Following the death of Tanzania’s President on Wednesday night, Tanzania is set to get its first female President. According to their constitution, after the death of the President, the vice-president is to be sworn in for the remaining part of the term.

“Where the office of President becomes vacant by reason of death, then the Vice-President shall be sworn in and become the President for the unexpired period of the term of five years.” states the constitution

Samia Hassan Suluhu who was the first female vice-president during Magufuli’s ruling  will now be sworn in as the President.

The same may also happen if a vacancy occurs due to resignation, loss of electoral qualifications or inability to perform his functions due to physical infirmity, or failure to discharge the duties and functions of the office of President.

She is then expected to consult with her political party, Chama cha Mapinduzi and come up with the name of the vice-president.

Such appointment shall be confirmed by the National Assembly by votes of not less than fifty per cent of all the Members of Parliament.

Samia Suluhu made a press statement on Wednesday night where she said President Magufuli had died from heart complications.

Suluhu was an MP for Makunduchi constituency from 2010 to 2015 and has been Minister of State in the Vice-President’s Office for Union Affairs since 2010.
