Mauritius president refuses to resign over financial scandal
A woman disrupted a public meeting attended by Tanzania’s President John Magufuli in the main city of Dar es Salaam to appeal to him to act against people whom she accused of conspiring to deprive her of property.
Ms Shoshi, as she was identified by government-owned Daily News, caused a commotion during Law Day, an annual event organised by the judiciary to provide legal education and legal aid.
In a video shared online, she caught Mr Magufuli’s attention, leading him to order policemen to allow her to come near the dais where he was seated.
Ms Shoshi then went on to narrate how the court system has frustrated her inheritance case by issuing conflicting orders and that she had received death threats.
The paper reports that Ms Shoshi is a widow and a Kenyan citizen who was married to a Tanzanian and lived in the northern region of Tanga.
Mr Magufuli ordered the judges to speedily listen to her case. He also directed the chief justice, who was present, to give the woman his phone number so that she can follow up with him on the case’s progress.
Mr Magufuli also ordered the police boss to ensure that Ms Shoshi gets full protection.Source: BBC
