President Kikwete collapses again in public


Tanzania’s president, Jakaya Kikwete, collapsed today at a public rally when launching his presidential campaigns for a second term in office. This incident took place at Jangwani grounds in Dar es Salaam, as the incumbent cut short his speech and fell in the hands of his aides behind him. The crowd stood still as he was carried and rushed for first-aid, and then returned after 20 minutes to close his speech without any political pomps. This was his third time in five years. The last time he collapsed it was in October 2009; when his aides cited fatigue as reason for the embarassment.

  1. 7.“we have learnt a lesson, and we pledge to be more careful…” Dr. Mfisi, 2009.

    Was this a serious statement from the President’s doctor? Is Dr. Mfisi still his doctor? Perhaps not anymore, otherwise, I don’t understand the whole drama.

    But why should the prsident collapse in public, and for Heaven’s sake, for the fourth time? Should we expect the fifth, and perhaps the sixth time before the end of the campaigns?
