Tanzanian president Magufuli ‘only eats his wife’s food’
A profile of Tanzania’s president John Magufuli in the Financial Times includes a curious rumour about him.
After a few hundred words portraying the man as a no-nonsense boss who “sacks people on the spot” it said “naturally, Mr Magufuli has made enemies”.
The Financial Times suggests this build-up of opposition has manifested itself in his culinary preferences:
“In State House, as a precaution, he is said to eat only food prepared by his wife.”
We have not verified this, nor does the Financial Times say how they have heard this rumour.
