Tanzania President John Pombe Magufuli has issued a stern warning to protesters to keep off government property while carrying out their demonstrations asking them to direct their anger to their wives.
“Palikuwa na ambulance hapa mkaichoma. Mlipata fujo fujo zile kero, mkaamua kuiweka moto, kitendo cha ajabu. Hasira zinapotokea, mpelekee mke wako,” Magufuli said a the crowd cheered along.
President Magufuli made the remarks while launching the renovated Mbonde health facility located in Masasi in Mtwara.
The renovations came after angry protesters burnt ten state vehicles and an ambulance.
Magufuli promised that the government will buy another ambulance and indicated that anger and wrath comes from the devil and people must learn to control it.
“Hasira zitakuja tu na hasira ni shetani, mtafika siku moja mtachoma hata hiki kituo cha afya, mtachoma hata zile xray zinazotumika kupima au chumba cha kufanyia operation mtakiweka moto. Serikali inaweka pesa, nyinyi mnakwenda kuchoma, hasira za namna hio kama ni pepo mkazikemee zote,” he said.
