East Africa To Crown First Female President, Samia Suluhu Hassan

Samia Suluhu Hassan will become from today Tanzania’s new president, following the death of President John Magufuli on Wednesday.
She will be making history, as the first woman to be president in Tanzania and in east Africa. Hassan, now 61, had also made history, when she became the first female vice-president in 2015. 

 She will complete Magufuli’s five-year second term, which he began in November 2020. President Hassan was born in the semi-autonomous archipelago of Zanzibar on 27 January, 1960. 

 And she now makes another record as the first Tanzanian president from Zanzibar. After completing her secondary education in 1977, she got married in 1978 and now has four children, one of whom is a parliamentarian in Zanzibar.

 Her first job was when she was employed by the Ministry of Planning and Development as a clerk.
