Samia Suluhu sworn in as Tanzania`s President today.

Tanzania Vice President Samia Suluhu is sworn in as the President of Tanzania. This is due to the untimely death of the President John Pombe Magufuli.

Suluhu will be the first female president of Tanzania and the first female president in the East Africa region.

She will be sixth president of Tanzania and second president to come from the country`s semi-autonomous island of Zanzibar.

The swearing in ceremony of Suluhu is in line with the country`s constitution that requires the Vice President to take over for the remaining term if the sitting president dies, resigns or is indisposed.
