“Magufuli possesses leadership qualities; the issue of leading the country is not a joke. Many have emerged but on polling day you must be careful, give your vote to the person whose history you well know. Magufuli had been a cabinet minister for 20 years. He led sensitive ministries and managed them well to attain development,” Majaliwa said.

Majaliwa gave the remarks on Tuesday this week when speaking at different times at election campaign rallies in Lubuga and Ilungu wards in Magu District, Mwanza Region as he was introducing his party’s candidates.

Majaliwa who completed his campaign tour in Mara Region, went to Mwanza Region seeking votes for his party’s presidential candidate.

He used the occasion to introduce CCM parliamentary candidate for Magu constituency, Kiswaga Destery and candidates for the councillorship.

“Tanzania had been denied development because there were a few corrupt people who adversely affected people at the low level of the society. We want a leader who can fight corruption, and Magufuli is the one we want,” he said.

In regard to strengthening the health sector, Majaliwa said treatment policy for pregnant women, children and elders is free.

“We have provided Magu District with 10.8bn/- for that purpose. We have health insurance and we want to improve it to become national. As for now we have the Bill for Health Insurance, and we plan to incorporate workers and ordinary citizens in the scheme,” he added.
